Putrid Desperation: Brooklyn Law School to Offer Two Year JD Program
On May 8, 2013, the second tier trash pit issued a press release, with the headline “Brooklyn Law School Creates the First Accelerated 2-Year J.D. Program in New York Metro Area.” The pigs’ mothers must be very proud. Take a look at this portion:
“Last night the Board of Trustees of Brooklyn Law School (“BLS”) approved an accelerated 2-year J.D. program beginning in summer 2014. With the creation of the program, BLS will be able to offer a range of flexible 2-, 2.5-, 3-, 3.5- or 4-year options—called “Brooklyn 2-3-4”—to adapt to prospective students’ needs. Brooklyn Law School is the first in the New York metropolitan area to enable students to earn a J.D. in 2 years.
The new 2-year offering is designed for select students seeking a rigorous legal education in an abbreviated timeframe. Candidates interested in this type of program might be, for example: 1) mid-life or mid-career professionals, including CPAs, MBA graduates, or those from academia desiring legal credentials and a new start; 2) foreign-trained lawyers with strong English-language proficiency; 3) individuals with established career plans following law school; or, 4) adults who seek to reenter the workforce.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, it is noble – and a true sign of “public service” - to take advantage of desperate, older people, right?!?! One would think that a supposed “institution of higher education” would be embarrassed to publically post such filth. Then again, we are dealing with academic sociopaths.
Other Coverage of This Garbage:
Adam B. posted an epic entry on this trash program, in his May 29, 2013 OTLSS piece “Dean Nick Allard and the Future of the Scam.” Check out the excerpt below:
“Brooklyn Law School recently announced that it will offer a two-year J.D. program designed for non-traditional students, i.e. middle-aged students, foreign-trained lawyers, and other people trying to reenter the workforce in a second post-recession career. Obviously, this is a particularly nasty scam, which attempts to attract the least hirable potential students. Most law firms do not want to hire older lawyers even if they have years of experience. It goes without saying that the majority of older lawyers will not have the ability to scrape together a makeshift solo practice, nor would most want to or plan to.
BLS is marketing this new program as a great way for older people to reignite their careers and to find employment stability before they retire. It is only incidental, I suppose, that it is also a great way to scam unemployed middle-aged people who think that a two-year program will cost less (it won’t).” [Emphasis mine]
Adam B. is correct in noting that the school is targeting those who will be the least likely to find legal employment, while enrolled or upon graduation. The administrators and “professors” at this garbage heap have no shame.
Elie Mystal wiped his ass with Brooklyn Law Sewer once again. On May 14, 2013, he authored an ATL article entitled “The More Law Schools Change, The More Law Faculty Will Start Pitching A Fit.” Here is my favorite segment of that piece:
“More recently, Brooklyn has been begging for press over its new two-year J.D. program. We haven’t covered it here because I didn’t feel like pretending that a polished turd doesn’t stink. The “two-year” program has just as many class hours and costs just as much money as the three year program. In fact, instead of saving students money, the program is designed to remove summer breaks. You remember the summer right? It’s that time during a decent economy when students can work full time to defray some of the costs of attending law school.
Whatever, maybe Brooklyn is tacitly admitting that students aren’t very likely to get lucrative summer associate positions while attending Brooklyn.” [Emphasis mine]
Even though law firms typically discriminate against older students, in their hiring practices, this program basically ensures that these men and women will have no shot in hell of landing summer clerkships. The best outcome that these non-traditional students can hope to attain is to become solo practitioners, once they receive their TT law degrees.
Ranking: The commode is currently rated as the 80th greatest, most phenomenal and amazing law school in the entire country – according to US “News” & World Report. That is quite a prestigious in$TTiTTuTTion, huh?!?!
Pathetic Employment Placement: The sewer rats admit that the nine-month employment rate, for the Class of 2012, stood at an underwhelming 75.4 percent! That is an embarrassment. Keep in mind that this includes non-law jobs, as well as part-time and temporary positions.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Crooklyn JD Class of 2012 who incurred debt for law school - as $105,916. Hell, 88 percent of this school’s 2012 class took on such foul debt. Remember, this figure does not include undergraduate debt. It also does not take accrued interest into account.
Conclusion: Crooklyn Law Sewer is a foul, putrid, stench pit. The commode is merely ranked 80th “best” by USN&WR. Apparently, the pigs are more concerned with getting more federally-backed student loan checks than they are about increasing their pathetic rating. The bitches and hags simply want to keep the gravy train rolling along, as long as possible. Again, the law school swine DO NOT GIVE ONE DAMN about the students or recent graduates. After all, they are not the ones stuck with $130K+ in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt. If you have a functioning brain stem, then you will not even consider this toxic dump.
