Profiles in Shameless Ass-Kissing: Andrew Spillane, Marquette JD
Hello, Andrew Spillane. How are you doing today, you slack-jawed, beady-eyed brown noser?
After lamenting the task of landing employment in a down economy, Andrew decides to stick his head firmly up his rectum:
“And then, there are the scam bloggers. These law students and graduates have taken to the Internet to voice their complaints about the cost and quality of legal education. They claim that their schools defrauded them—or scammed them, if you will—into believing that most of the schools’ graduates landed employment in private practice or with the government or in business post-graduation, all implying to them that they would be working as attorneys. But lo and behold, the employment statistics reported by the schools may have been inflated, counting someone working at the law school on a part-time basis and someone working as a barista at Starbucks as employed under their statistics.” [Emphasis mine]
Child, many ABA-accredited law schools have definitely inflated their employment placement rates, as well as starting salary information.
Dean John Y. Gotanda ADMITTED that Villanova University School of Law KNOWINGLY reported inaccurate info to the ABA. How is that for reality?!?!
Look at how SEVERAL third tier commodes and fourth tier trash pits ADMITTED that their article III clerkship figures are wrong. Of course, the pigs at the University of North Dakota, University of St. Thomas, and Western New England College refer to these as reporting “errors.” For $ome rea$on, those “mistakes” seem to always benefit the schools.
Unlike Spineless Spillane, Paul Campos, law professor at the University of Colorado-Boulder, does not mince words.
“Law schools, however, make it much harder than it needs to be by publishing misleading data about their employment statistics. Many law schools all but explicitly promise that, within a few months of graduation, practically all their graduates will obtain jobs as lawyers, by trumpeting employment figures of 95 percent, 97 percent, and even 99.8 percent. The truth is that less than half will.” [Emphasis mine]
Sissy Spillane then cries that some of the scamblogs are “littered with curse words.” Get over it, and direct some of your ire to the "in$titition$ of higher education" that are crushing students with mountains of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt. We are not the ones charging $47,800 for a single year of tuition and fees at a third tier commode. However, the 135th greatest, most fantastic law school in the nation, New York Law $chool, manages to do so. Also, the scam-blogs are not stating that Class of 2010 members in private practice earned a median starting salary of $125,000. Seton Hall University Sewer of Law makes this claim. How is that for professionalism and ethics?!?!
Thanks to scam-blogger Demosthenes, we can see that Andrew Spillane has always been a tool. He earned a “Political Science” degree from Marquette University, in 2008. Wow! That must have been very strenuous. What an achievement! Andrew then managed to graduate cum laude from 95th ranked Marquette University Law School. Yet, by his own admission, he has “struggled to find attorney positions with decent pay.” (At least you did not need to take the Wisconsin bar exam, and shell out more money.)
Furthermore, Andrew was a member of the foul trash pit known as the Federalist Society. This reprehensible organization was started, when neoconservatives realized that Republicans often occupy the Oval Office while facing congressional opposition. Hence, the cockroaches support the idiotic “unitary executive theory.”

What a beacon of integrity, huh?!?! Andrew also worked at Guaranty Bank FSB in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I don’t see where he had any law firm or clinic experience. So much for graduating with honors from a borderline second tier sewage pit, I guess.
Lastly, Andrew, why don’t you ask Gordon Hylton of MarqueTTe Univer$iTTy Law $chool what he thinks of this site?!?!
Back on July 30, 2010 at 9:24 pm, Professor J. Gordon Hylton at Marquette Law School wrote the following, about Third Tier Reality:
“For a thought-provoking (and sobering) blog devoted to the realities of legal education in the 21st century, one should check out Third Tier Reality
In fact, he made this statement on the very Marquette Law Faculty Blog that you claim to thoroughly enjoy, bitch.
As you can see, Hylton has taught at Marquette Law since 1995. You do want his approval, don’t you?!
