Um, should the bar really have to force attorneys to learn more?

In "Why Do Lawyers Have to Be Forced to Take CLE?" Carolyn Elefant has usual frank take on human behavior and the world of lawyering. She begins:

"Given that there are now so many low cost options available for CLE (and at least one more that I've proposed), I can't really object that it places an undue financial burden on solo and small firm lawyers.  At the same time, the most valuable learning for many solo and small firm lawyers comes not in the form of classroom education, but from bouncing ideas off, and asking questions of more experienced colleagues.  I know that's certainly where I've learned the most in my practice. 

"Also, I think it's kind of silly that the bar has to force people to learn more."
