Stacked Excrement Piles: Law School Diploma Mills Rutgers-Camden and Rutgers-Newark to Merge
Two Trash Pits to Merge Together:
On February 28, 2013, the Star-Ledger published Kelly Heyboer’s piece, entitled “Rutgers to propose merging Newark and Camden law schools.” Take a look at this opening:
“Nearly 45 years ago, Rutgers University administrators weary of trying to run a law school with two campuses at opposite ends of the state decided to cut their school in half. With great fanfare, the Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-Camden law schools were born.
Now, almost a half century later, Rutgers wants to bring its two law schools back together.
Today, Rutgers President Robert Barchi announced a plan to merge Rutgers-Newark School of Law and Rutgers-Camden School of Law into a single entity by the fall of 2014, creating one of the largest law schools in the country. The 1,400-student school would, once again, be called the Rutgers School of Law.
Though university officials are still working out details of how the united institution would be run, the law school will maintain its two existing campuses.” [Emphasis mine]
Why is this a news story, you ask? Yes, two ABA-accredited toilets merging into one gigantic trash heap is not going to change “legal education” - especially when the enrollment will remain roughly the same. Later on, you will see the mindset of the law school swine:
“John Farmer Jr., dean of the Rutgers-Newark law school, said new technology has helped solve many of the logistical and communication problems that prompted Rutgers to split the two schools in 1967.
In recent years, law school enrollment has been declining nationwide due, in part, to the lack of jobs and the nation’s economic woes. Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-Camden often compete for the same students, faculty and resources.
"Does it really make sense for us to be competing against each other?" Farmer asked.” [Emphasis mine]
For $ome rea$on, Pig Farmer does not recognize that new technology removes the need for enormous, expensive law libraries. We are in the digital age, Ass-Clown!
Old Proposed Merger Between RuTTgers-Camden and Rowan University:
Back on February 8, 2012, Nic Corbett’s article, entitled “Rowan merger plan complicates proposal to merge 2 Rutgers law schools,” appeared in the Star-Ledger. From the opening:
“It wasn't exactly the merger they had in mind.
Faculty at Rutgers University's law schools in Camden and Newark have been talking about becoming one institution, but that concept has now been complicated by a proposed takeover of the Rutgers-Camden campus by Rowan University.
In a letter to the Rutgers president last week, Camden law school instructors said they recently met to discuss the next steps toward increased cooperation between the two schools. The ultimate goal would be to create "Rutgers Law," which would have a presence in New Brunswick — the university’s largest campus — and raise the national stature of Rutgers' legal education.”
These profitable business enterprises - masquerading as non-profit “in$titution$ of higher learning” - realize that name brand matters to applicants. Rutgers is a known commodity, even though it is seen as a middling school. In the end, the law schools care about one thing: money!
As TTTT dean John O’Brien, of New England Law Sewer, told the Oregonian, back on August 4, 2012: “It's not the ABA's job to police the number of law schools," O'Brien said. "Law schools are like other businesses. Ultimately, that's what they are.”
Rowan's Impact on RuTTgers-Camden SOL:
Newsworks New Jersey published a June 20, 2012 story from Elizabeth Fiedler, under the headline “Uncertainty hurts numbers for Rutgers-Camden law and business schools.” Check out this revealing excerpt:
“The proposed merger of Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University has been making headlines for months.
While the plan is still evolving, all that publicity is giving some prospective students second thoughts.
Rutgers-Camden School of Law Dean Rayman Solomon said the uncertainty about the merger has hurt the school.
"Applications are down 27 percent which is more than the national average which is 15 percent to 16 percent," said Solomon. "Those who have deposited and committed to coming is down over last year by over 50 percent. However last year was the largest enrollment we'd ever had and this is an ongoing process, so you're comparing last year's final with this on a rolling basis."
Solomon said students have said they like the Rutgers-Camden program but have decided to go elsewhere because they're unsure of the school's fate.” [Emphasis mine]
Again, the academic thieves know the score in this game. Their ultimate goal is to make boatloads of money - at the expense of YOUR future, financial health, and family. You, the student, are merely a means to an end.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, the the sewer rats will continue to financially ass-rape tons of students. This is a mere name change, which is designed to maintain the school’s name brand. This gesture will not help current students or recent graduates of these two piles of waste. According to Economic Modeling Specialists Inc., the state of New Jersey has the THIRD LARGEST GLUT OF ATTORNEYS, in the entire nation!! Only New York and California have more oversaturated lawyer job markets. How do you like those odds, Lemming?!?!
