Unaccredited Texas Trash Pit: University of North Texas at Dallas College of Law
Tuition: This pile of waste has not yet opened its filthy doors. Of course, that doesn’t stop these pigs from charging non-resident, full-time students $23,760 in tuition - for the 2014-2015 school year. In-state, full time UNT law students will be charged a rate of $12,540 for 2014-2015, once the $1,500 partial tuition waiver is applied.
Why Attend This Vile Toilet?: In the pigs’ own words:
“WE OFFER AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO LEGAL EDUCATION.
We are a new law school, with a fresh emphasis on learning by doing. We utilize the best instructional practices, offer engaged, experiential and collaborative learning, and provide ongoing assessment for our students. Since sound legal judgment is cultivated by experience, we give you ample opportunities to do real law. Most of our upper level courses include a “lab” component that applies the subject matter while developing practical competencies. And our students actively participate in practice settings while receiving mentoring and guidance.” [Emphasis mine]
You will still be taught by failed attorneys known as “law professors.” Most of these dolts will have roughly seven minutes of experience as lawyers. If "the law" is so wonderful and amazing, why aren't these old bitches and hags practicing?!?! Plus, this school has no alumni network at all!
Message from the Swine Dean: Arlen Specter-doppelganger Royal Furgeson puts forth the following reason for attending his outhouse:
“So you want to go to law school. Why should you consider us, the UNT Dallas College of Law, a brand new school? Without making any extravagant promises, I can think of a few reasons, and not simply because I am the Dean.
Our goal is to be a teaching law school, concentrating on student learning, but with a different vision of what that means. For one thing, in the first year and beyond, your courses will include periodic feedback and assessments during the course, not the usual single test at the end of each semester. This will help you know how well you are learning the material, and how to improve. It also will help us monitor how effectively we are teaching. We don’t want anyone to fall behind if we can prevent it. So we will be challenging you, but we will also be supportive.” [Emphasis mine]
Cockroach Specter, you will recall, was the author of the idiotic “magic bullet” theory, in order to help cover up the November 22, 1963 assassination that took place in Dealey Plaza - and he went to Yale Law School! In the final analysis, Furgeson is also grasping at straws - in an attempt to justify his unaccredited filth pit’s existence. It goes without saying that this periodic feedback will not create any additional lawyer job openings in the state. Plus, legal employers outside of Texas will not be looking at UNT Dallas Commode of Law grads.
Epic Flush of UNT Dallas COL: Back on July 6, 2010, Elie Mystal posted a hilarious entry labeled “How to Sell a Law School to Texans.” Check out this segment:
“Over the weekend, a tipster sent us the pitch North Texas is using on Texans who don’t know any better. Here’s the school’s headline:
Opening a public law school at the right time in the right place
You have got to be freaking kidding me…
As with the travesty at UMass, the North Texas argument is that North Texas somehow deserves a law school, not whether a new law school is needed (or whether its graduates will be able to find jobs). The website has five bullet points for why it’s a good idea to open a public law school in Dallas/Fort Worth. They are exceedingly stupid reasons:
* Since 1980, Texas’ population has grown from 14.3 million to an estimated 23.9 million in 2007, but no additional opportunities for legal education have been added.
I’ll stipulate that the demand for legal education is up if you stipulate that the supply of actual lawyers has totally saturated the market.
* The last public law school in Texas opened in 1967. Since 2000, the number of bachelor degrees is growing at an average rate of 2,400 per year.
Objection: relevance.” [Emphasis mine]
Anyone with an ounce of integrity and honesty realizes that there is no need for another law school in Texas.
The Lawyer Glut in Texas: Catherine Rampell’s piece, “The Lawyer Surplus, State by State,” was published by the New York Times Economix blog - on June 27, 2011.
According to Economic Modeling Specialists Inc., Texas had the SEVENTH MOST GLUTTED LAWYER JOB MARKET in the entire damn country. Does that sound as if the state needed another piece of garbage law school?!?!
Conclusion: The UniversiTTTTTTy of NorTTTTTTh TTTTTTexas aTTTTTT Dallas Commode of Law is a pathetic joke. As pointed out above, the Texas attorney job market is GLUTTED. There are already nine ABA-accredited diploma mills located in the state. Does anyone with a functioning brain stem believe that Texans are in need of legal representation from waterheads who couldn’t get into a real law school?!?! Furthermore, will those clients be able to pay for these garbage services?!
