It is obvious...not all people are right handed.But if you have to fight in formation, everybody has to carry their sword in the right hand, shield in the left hand so as to not foul your shield mates strokes etc.Since everybody in azeroth has to fight some time, they took basic training in formation fighting, thus they carry sword right hand shield left hand.

@John - lefties weren't the soldiers in formation, they were the special forces operating alone behind the lines (i.e., the rogues). And even so, lefties were great for certain group activities such as storming towers. Tower stairs always spiraled up anti-clockwise to make it easier for the defenders to swing their swords and harder for the attackers to get a good backswing. Having lefties perform that assault foiled that strategy.
