Fourth Tier Trash Pit New England Law | Boston Shedding Faculty Due to Falling Enrollment
On November 11, 2013, the NaTTTional Juri$TTT published Alicia Albertson’s piece, “New England Law downsizing enrollment, faculty size.” Look at this excerpt:
“John O’Brien, previously the highest paid dean in the nation, will take a 25 percent pay cut this year, amid enrollment cutbacks and faculty buyouts at New England Law | Boston.
Its part of the school’s effort to stay ahead of the curve.
“Looking ahead, New England Law, like most law schools, anticipates fewer applications and smaller classes for the foreseeable future as a result of national trends,” said Patrick Collins, director of communications and marketing at the stand-alone law school. “The school is positioning itself for those realities.”
O’Brien’s salary will drop from $867,000 to around $650,000 a year. They faculty buyouts would go into effect for the 2014-2015 academic year.
“The Board of Trustees has proposed a generous incentive plan for voluntary separation by some faculty members, to take effect at the beginning of the new academic year,” Collins said. “The final number of participants in the plan will depend on faculty interest, enrollment projections, curricular needs and other institutional requirements.” [Emphasis mine]
You’re welcome, cockroaches! I love how the bitches and hags at this dump tried to spin this as a “voluntary” reduction in student enrollment. Yeah, sure it was their choice - and I decided not to ask Salma Hayek out last weekend.
Paul Campos reported on this development with his October 25, 2013 entry labeled “Law school dean threatens to summarily fire faculty who don’t accept buyouts or doubled teaching loads.” Read the following portion:
“Paul Caron quotes an anonymous source “close to the situation” as they say:
New England School of Law plans to eliminate 14 fulltime faculty positions by August 1, 2014. Depending on how one counts, this is about 35-40% of the regular faculty. . . . Faculty have been told by Dean John O’Brien that these 14 positions will be eliminated according to the School’s needs, regardless of tenure or seniority. An incentive plan has been offered to senior faculty and certain clinical faculty, but those who don’t take it have been threatened with termination. Their decisions must be final by the end of the Fall term. Those who still do not comply or were not offered the plan, were told that if they remain, their workload during the next academic year will move from 2 to as much as 4 courses per semester and that they will be required to be at their desks from 9 to 5 each day of the work week or an equivalent time period if they are teaching evening classes.
(I asked Caron how confident he is in the source’s reliability, and he replied “100%.”).” [Emphasis mine]
I am enjoying this development thoroughly.
A Severe Uppercut to the Swines' Snouts:
The Law School Truth Center blog went off on Pig O’Brien, in the October 28, 2013 post entitled “The Intolerable Acts of King O'Brien.” Check out this epic, hilarious opening:
“New England School of Law - close to the place where Britain really put the vicegrip on the American colonies' revolutionizing nutsack - is paying homage to that heritage by cracking the whip on its law professors:
35-40% cut in faculty.
Increased teaching loads to 8 classes per annum.
9-5 work schedule.
9-5 work schedule!!!!!!!
Intolerable. These are academic professionals.” [Emphasis mine]
I’m sure that the academic thieves at this notorious dung pit are sweating their little balls off over this fact. Remember, the vast majority of house cats work harder than these bastards.
Conclusion: John O’Brien is a reprehensible cockroach. As you can see, New England Law | Boston is rated as a FOURTH TIER PILE OF TRASH - by US “News” & World Report. Yes, that surely makes this sewer rat worth every penny of his $867K annual compensation, huh?!?! In the last analysis, this commode announcing that it is cutting staff is akin to a plumber slicing a turd in half. What’s the big deal? Well, according to USN&WR, the average law student indebtedness figure for the NELB Class of 2012 stood at a $132,632. In fact, 92% of this unfortunate cohort incurred debt for a TTTT law degree. At least, these academic dung beetles will not be FINANCIALLY RAPING as many students each year.
