Why do Litvak Yeshivot outside of Israel solely focus on Gemara and a bit of Musar, at the expense of Halacha

From reading the other thread, why is there no Halacha in the curriculum in non Israeli Litvak Yeshivot? Instead just a diet of Gemara, Musar, it does not make sense for Orthodox Jews who follow a legalistic based religion to go to an institution where the very law which the religion is based on and supposed to follow 24/7 is not focused in the curriculum

I understand that Gemara is one of the foundational basis for Halacha and it’s where we get the basis for the laws from, but would not it make more sense to have a curriculum where half the day is focused on Gemara and the other half on Halacha in these Yeshivot ?
