More Academic Excrement Flushed Away: State University of New York at Buffalo Law School Announces Faculty Downsizing
Suck on That, Law School Pigs!: On March 18, Buffalo Business First published reporter Dan Miner’s piece, which was labeled “Downsizing planned for UB Law School.” Check out this fantastic opening:
“The University at Buffalo Law School is shrinking its faculty footprint and decreasing the size of its incoming classes, Dean Makau Mutua said.
UB has not been immune from the national struggles facing U.S. law schools, as applications have plummeted against the backdrop of a profession that has struggled mightily since the recession.
Mutua said the school will ease its ideal freshman class size from 200-225 to 185-200 in order to maintain the quality of its students.
Additionally, UB has offered retirement incentives to faculty over the age of 55. Mutua said eight people will accept, reducing the faculty from about 48 to about 40.
Mutua said the retirement incentives will allow the law school to avoid layoffs.
“These are valued colleagues who have been with us a long time and made many wonderful contributions,” he said. “So we wanted to do it in a way that was mutually [beneficial].”
Cutting class sizes and faculty has become a standard move at American law schools, where applications have dropped more than 47 percent from 87,500 in fall 2010 [to] 59,400 in 2013, according to Law School Admission Council. At UB law school, the number of applicants dropped from 1,894 to 1,146 in that same range.” [Emphasis mine]
It feels great to watch these pigs burn to a crisp! Think of the LEGIONS of students that these sewer rats have collectively raped financially, over the course of several decades. If you still have any sympathy for these academic thieves, then you truly are a moronic piece of garbage.
Of course, Cockroach Makau Mutua felt the need to orally defecate at the end of the article:
“[The ABA-accredited trash pit] has also sought to modernize its home at O’Brian Hall on the North Campus. About $2.5 million has been spent refurbishing the space, with technological, logistic and aesthetic upgrades, Mutua said.
There is also an overriding sense that the both the legal and legal education industries have hit their lowest point and are due for at least some correction.
“While these changes are historic in their magnitude, I think we’ve seen the bottom of it,” Mutua said. “I think the market is coming back and we are stabilizing. I think the future looks bright for us.” [Emphasis mine]
In the end, this is delusional thinking. For instance, I don’t believe that if I hit the weight room and run more often, that the San Francisco Giants – or Salma Hayek - will give me a call. The again, the law school swine are actually attempting to further deceive applicants – by trying to inject some false confidence about the commode’s future.
Other Coverage: Staci Zaretsky posted a hilarious ATL entry entitled “The Future At This Law School Is So ‘Bright’ That It Has to Offer Buyouts.” Read the following excerpt:
“Another day, another law school administrator talking out of both sides of his mouth. Sure, his law school is reducing its faculty numbers because there isn’t enough tuition money to pay their salaries, but everything is going to be fine. According to this dean, “I think the market is coming back and we are stabilizing. I think the future looks bright for us.”
Which law school is politely pushing its older faculty members out the door this time?
It’s none other than the hundredth-best law school in the country (in a four-way tie), SUNY Buffalo Law. In a three-year period, applicants to Buffalo have dropped from 1,894 to 1,146. Ouch, that’s got to sting a little.” [Emphasis mine]
In the end, who cares if a vile pig squeals when you skewer it’s ass?!?! In a just world, these bastards would be hog-tied and tossed into a river of their own foul excrement.
The Cesspool’s Ranking: In the latest edition of the US “News” & World Report ratings scheme, SUNY Buffalo Law Sewer is listed as the co-100th greatest, most exhilarating and amazing law school in the land! Their mothers must be thrilled.
Pathetic Legal Job Placement: On April 10, 2013, Dan Filler posted a Faculty Lounge entry entitled “New Law School Rankings: Employment Data Cleaned Of School Funded Jobs” This article is based off of each ABA-accredited diploma mill’s Class of 2012 ABA Employment Report.
As the text and title make clear, the figures pertain to JD Required positions that are full-time, long term - and exclude law school funded jobs. Under these measures, SUNY Buffalo Law School placed 52.15 percent of its grads in such positions. Keep in mind that these are the employment opportunities that one seeks when applying to law school. By the way, this figure was good enough for 116th “best” among the 201 toilets listed.
Conclusion: You will not be served well by attending this garbage heap. Perhaps, if your family is seriously connected or wealthy – and you were simply too damn dumb to get into a real law school, despite all of your advantages – then you may be okay. You do not need to piss away three years of your life, in the foolish pursuit of an advanced Humanities degree.

Excellent News!: On March 18, 2014, the Roanoke Times re-posted an Allie Robinson Gibson piece, under the epic headline “Appalachian School of Law to scale back classes, staff.” Check out this opening:
“A national decline in applicants to law schools and a desire to return to local roots led to a law school’s announcement this week that it will downsize its incoming class of students and tighten its budget belt in other ways.
The Appalachian School of Law in Grundy will whittle down class sizes until they’re more in line with the number accepted when the school opened about 16 years ago, Lucy McGough, dean of the law school, said Tuesday.
“We were about 150 to 200 students when Appalachian Law School was founded, now 16 years ago, and then we rode the rising tide like all other American law schools and grew larger,” she said. “At one time, we had a student body approaching double that, near 300.”
McGough said the school is experiencing a decline in applications, and some of the things added during the school’s expansion have been trimmed.
“[We’re] returning to a smaller school because that’s probably closer to our mission in any event,” she said. “We’re a school … principally for the Appalachian region, a six-state region. The choice to keep it the same size would mean you’d have to take applicants of lesser quality. Given our choices, we think it’s better to return to our roots.” [Emphasis mine]
I laughed so hard when I saw this stupid boar’s comment about refusing to take “applicants of lesser quality,” I nearly had tears in my eyes. Apparently, Cockroach McGough is not aware that her commode accepts 71 percent of its applicants! Hell, starving humans are more selective in what they choose to eat.
According to Law School Numbers, the median LSAT score of enrolled students was 146, while the median UGPA stood at an astounding 2.94! Hell, you could submit a picture of your girlfriend’s feet on your Personal Statement, and underneath the photo scrawl “I like cookies!” in red crayon, and likely gain admission to this festering dung heap.
The Toilet’s Small Endowment: Based on page one, line 12, of the 2013 Form 990 for this pile of excrement, the school received $7,633,055 in total revenue. On line 18, you will notice that the swine had total expenses of $7,380,681 - for the tax year ending on June 30, 2013. Line 19 shows Revenue Less Expenses coming out to $252,694.
Go to line 20 of the first page. You will see that the trash pit had $29,110,621 in end of year total assets, offset by $880,744 in total liabilities. As such, the pile of rubbish had a mere endowment of $28,229,877 - as of June 30, 2013.
Of course, this didn’t stop the ABA-accredited toilet from paying its dean, Lucy McGough, a sum of $205,600 - in TOTAL COMPENSATION for this particular tax year. The wildebeest raked in $175,000 in base compensation plus $30,600 in “retirement and other deferred compensation.” That information is available on page 27 of this tax form.
On Campus Shooting by a Crazy Bastard Appalachian Sewer of Law Student - on January 16, 2002 - Resulted in Three Dead Victims: Please read this CNN article from January 17, 2002. The piece was titled "Suspect in law school shootings arraigned." Here is one of the key excerpts, from this report:
"Peter Odighizuwa, 43, did not enter a plea. A judge ordered a attorney appointed for him and set a court date for March 21.
Authorities said that Odighizuwa, who had flunked out of law school, opened fire with a .380 semiautomatic handgun just after 1 p.m. ET Wednesday.
One of those killed was the dean of Appalachian School of Law, L. Anthony Sutin, 42 - a former acting assistant U.S. attorney general.
Killed along with Sutin were another faculty member, professor Thomas Blackwell, 41, and a student, Angela Denise Dales, 33, according to state police." [Emphasis mine]
This shooting rampage occurred while the filthy, vile, decrepit commode was provisionally accredited by the American Bar Association cockroaches. Yet, those parasites subsequently proceeded to grant full accreditation to this dung heap! Apparently, the pieces of garbage wanted to make sure that the two academic parasites did not “die in vain.”
Conclusion: This is an important moment in the law school scam, as this could signal that this trash pile could close down. First, this is an independent $chool. It is not connected to a larger univer$ity or college. Second, the endowment is tiny, relative to that of most schools. In sum, this school needs a larger enrollment, in order to make more money. If it reduces the number of students/victims, then it will receive less revenue via the federally-backed student loan $y$tem. Appalachian Sewer of Law does not have much room for error, and the swine cannot sustain many years of low enrollment - especially when the jackals insist on outrageous compensation for their minimal “work.” In the end, the pigs are cutting their own throats. And we will be there to shove an apple in their mouth and barbecue their asses!

Tuition: North Carolina residents attending this public toilet on a full-time basis will be charged $22,215 in tuition and fees - for the 2013-2014 school year. Full-time, out-of-state students will be ass-raped at the rate of $38,846, for the current academic year. It’s great to see that these “educators” are looking out for their students’ best interests, right?!?!
Total Cost of Attendance: According to this same document, other costs will amount to an additional $22,768. As such, the total estimated COA for in-state residents is listed as $44,983 - whereas non-residents will face a budget of $61,614. Again, this is for one damn year! Keep in mind that the bitches and hags base their estimates on a nine month calendar - in order to present a lower price tag.
Since actual law students will require living expenses over the full year, we will pro-rate the following items: room and board; travel; and miscellaneous costs. Books/supplies and insurance will remain unchanged. After making these adjustments, we reach the following, more accurate total figures for the current year: $51,671 for full-time, in-state residents and $68,302 for out-of-state suckers enrolled full-time. Who wouldn’t jump at this tremendous deal, huh?!?!
Ranking: Vagina Bob Morse of US “News” & World Report rates the University of North Carolina Sewer of Law as the 31st greatest, most phenomenal, and amazing law school in the entire nation. Hell, it only shares this distinction with four other ABA-accredited, diploma mills, i.e. Arizona State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Wake Forest.
Published Employment Placement Statistics: There were a total of 248 members of the UNC $chool of Law Class of 2013. Of that amount, 206 found employment within nine months of graduation. Eight people did not bother to report their status to the garbage heap. Five grads were pursuing another graduate degree, while 23 were unemployed and seeking and eight more were not searching for jobs.
This means that a mere 85% of this cohort was employed within the nine month mark, i.e. 204/240. Remember that this number includes those working in non-law positions, as well as those employed in part-time or temporary jobs. If you earned a law degree from this dung pit - and are working at PetSmart or selling insurance policies - then you are considered “employed” for the purpose of this summary.
Furthermore, the pigs hired nine of their own graduates from this class. Doing so, the rodents increased their placement rate by 3.75 percent. Then again, the swine may have done so because they care so much about their former students. Also note that of the 106 grads who found law firm employment, only 26 were hired by offices of more than 500 attorneys. In sum, your chance of landing such a position - at the 31st best law school in the country - is roughly 10.5%, i.e. 26/248.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Univer$ity of North Carolina $chool of Law Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $92,726. In fact, 81 percent of this commode’s 2013 class took on such toxic debt. Remember that this figure does not include undergraduate debt – and it also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
Journal Opportunities: As a law student at UNC, you will have a shot at writing onto the “world-renowned” North Carolina Journal of Law & Technology. From the commode’s description:
The North Carolina Journal of Law & Technology (“NC JOLT”) was founded in 1999 at the University of North Carolina School of Law. Our mission is to provide legal scholarship focusing on the many intersections between law and technology. We define technology very broadly, covering issues in intellectual property law, cyberspace law, environmental law, criminal law, health law, privacy law, and any other subject area where the sciences and law converge.
Now in its fifteenth volume, NC JOLT has gained national recognition as one of the top intellectual property journals in the country, according to Patently-O. As a student-run journal, we take pride in producing influential legal scholarship. NC JOLT publishes one print and one online edition at the end of each academic semester. Both editions feature full-length professional articles submitted to the journal, as well as student-written comments and recent developments prepared by our staff.”
Legal employers and beautiful women will climb all over you, if you mention that you are a student editor of this publicaTTTion! [Disclaimer: nothing of the sort will happen, simpleton.]
Conclusion: In the final analysis, the University of North Carolina Sewer of Law is a grossly overpriced, rancid pile of horse droppings. Don’t forget that nearly one-fifth of the last graduating class did not take out a single dime in student loans for this academic credential. If you are not from a wealthy family, then you are at a severe disadvantage with these kids. You will essentially be required to incur an additional $120K-$140K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt - and compete against these young men and women for the available good jobs. Good luck with that task, dumbass.

Top Ten Biggest Financial Rapists in “Legal Education”: As reported to, and published by, US “News” & World Report, here are the biggest offenders. The following figures pertain to “average indebtedness of 2013 graduates who incurred law school debt.” The percentage of the class that incurred debt for law school is included next to the amount:
Thomas Jefferson School of Law: $180,665; 92%
New York Law School: $164,739; 84%
American University (Washington): $158,636; 88%
California Western School of Law: $157,748; 90%
Northwestern University: $155,777; 78%
Whittier College: $154,267; 92%
University of Chicago: $153,753; 85%
Florida Coastal School of Law: $150,360; 91%
St. Thomas University: $150,166; 91%
University of Miami: $148,513; 79% [Emphasis mine]
Keep in mind that the debt totals above do not include the amount of student loans taken out for undergrad. They also do not take into account the interest that accrues while the victim/student is enrolled. At these ridiculous, monstrous sums, you will be relying on private loans to fund much of your garbage “education.”
There is No Correlation to “Quality” of School: Take a look at the latest edition of the law school rankings scheme from USN&WR. University of Chicago is tied for 4th best, and Northwestern is rated 12th in the country. The University of Miami settled at 61st, and American University Washington Commode of Law splashed all the way down to the 72nd spot. New York Law $chool is listed as the 140th greatest, most phenomenal and amazing law school in the land.
The following five toilets are ranked in the FOURTH TIER: California We$TTTTern $chool of Law; Florida Coastal Sewer of Law; St. Thomas “University”; TTTThoma$ Jeffer$on SOL; and Whittier College. That is an incredible achievement, huh?!?!
Other Coverage: Matt Leichter wrote a solid LSTB entry entitled “Record 14 Law Schools Didn’t Report 2013 Graduate Debt to US News.” Look at his analysis and accompanying chart:
“Each year, accompanying the U.S. News rankings is the online magazine’s list of law schools by graduate debt. The law schools are required to report this information to the ABA, but the ABA inexplicably doesn’t release it to the public, even though it’s one of the most useful things people studying law schools would like to know about. Instead, the ABA takes an unweighted average of the numbers and posts it in this pdf. Thus, for some reason, we must rely on U.S. News, and of course, law schools can decline to transmit their graduates’ average debt numbers.
On average, about four law schools (excluding Widener University’s Harrisburg campus, the three Puerto Rico law schools, and Belmont because I don’t think it’s had any graduates yet) don’t report average graduate debt levels. The previous record was six in 2010. This year, as many as fourteen chose not to. Here’s the list and their last reported average graduate debt levels:
Arizona Summit (formerly Phoenix) – $162,627 [UPDATE: Per the comments below, Arizona Summit Law School's Web site posts its 2012-13 graduates' average amount borrowed as $184,825.]
Southwestern – $147,976
Atlanta’s John Marshall – $142,515
Cornell – $140,000
Touro – $137,781
Campbell – $130,428
Santa Clara – $129,621
Loyola (La.) – $124,335
Thomas M. Cooley – $122,395
Appalachian – $114,740
La Verne – $112,628
Texas Southern – $99,992
Florida A&M (two years in a row) – $96,934
Rutgers-Camden – $93,990 [Emphasis in original]
Leichter pays close attention to detail, and he researches his posts thoroughly before publishing. The writing is clear and concise. If you are still considering pursuing a law degree, and you choose to ignore his data or that contained in the other scam-blogs, then you deserve to be in financial ruin.
Conclusion: If you are not wealthy or SERIOUSLY connected and you believe that it is a wise decision to attend law school, then you truly are a cretin. You should not be entrusted to watch someone's goldfish over the weekend. I seriously doubt that you have the mental capacity to dress yourself in the morning. Furthermore, it is obvious that the 14 ABA-accredited trash pits that WILLINGLY CHOSE to not supply their debt figures are merely trying to pull one over on dimwitted applicants. Would you purchase a car from some ass-clown in a cheap suit, if he concealed certain information about the automobile - such as the fact that it had been involved in a serious accident?!?! Then why in the hell would you incur $145K-$200K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a sorry-ass law degree from a festering garbage heap?! Grow a brain stem and do something useful with your life.

The Swine Sell Off Housing Units: On February 21, 2014, the Real Deal published Katherine Clarke’s piece, “Kushner snaps up Brooklyn Law School portfolio for $36.5M.” Look at this portion:
“Today, Brooklyn Law School executed a contract and accepted a deposit for the sale of six of our smaller properties,” Nick Allard, dean of the law school, told TRD via email. “The Board of Trustees authorized the sale because with a smaller student body we need fewer apartments to meet the housing needs of our students.”
The school decided to liquidate assets at this “opportune time in the real estate market,” he said.” [Emphasis mine]
The freestanding commode publicly acknowledged that there are fewer idiots enrolled at Crooklyn Law School. The board of tru$tee$ is doing what they can to keep the turd above water.
Brooklyn Law Sewer’s Prior Financial Situation: Back on Octoner 15, 2013, Crain’s New York Business posted an article from Theresa Agovino, which was entitled “Brooklyn Law School faces debt downgrade.” Check out this opening:
“Standard & Poor's on Tuesday warned Brooklyn Law School that the institution needed to reverse its financial decline or face higher borrowing costs.
In a report, the credit ratings agency lowered its outlook on the school's debt, issued by the New York State Dormitory, to negative from stable. The lowered outlook means the rating agency believes there is a one in three chance it could downgrade the debt, and the decision on whether to change the BBB+ rated debt could come within the next two years if Brooklyn Law's fiscal problems don’t improve.
In a statement, a spokesman for the law school acknowledged S&P’s concerns but added, “We are highly confident that, despite these challenges, Brooklyn Law School will continue to do well.” He also noted that Moody’s Investors Service reconfirmed a stable outlook on the school’s debt two months ago.
Law schools in recent years have seen steep drops in enrollment and tuition revenue and the ratings agency said that trend could continue for the next two years. Brooklyn law has been especially hard hit. Headcount decreased 10% to 1,137 this fall from a year ago and 22% over the last three years, the ratings agency said.
Competition for students has led to discounts on tuition. Even though full-time tuition increased 2.5% at the school this year to $51,243, the school has increased the amount it offers in grants or scholarships to 37%, compared to 15% in 2007, according to S&P.” [Emphasis mine]
Of course, the sale of the trash pit’s property has nothing to do with this prior debt downgrade, right?!?! This must merely be one hell of a coincidence!
Crooklyn Buildings on the Market Since June 2013: On June 19, 2013, the Brooklyn Paper featured a Jaime Lutz article labeled “You have the right to sell: Brooklyn Law to unload six Heights buildings.” Focus on the following excerpt:
“Brooklyn Law School is selling six of its student housing buildings in Brooklyn Heights.
Realtor Massey Knakal announced yesterday that the 114-year-old institution has put the residences, which, combined, could be valued at more than $41 million on the market — and is pitching them as a landlord’s dream.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, this is a clear sign of stability, huh?!?! Law school critics have been very effective in spreading the truth to prospective students.
Pig Wexler Stepped Down Last Summer: The New York Law Journal published a piece from Joel Stashenko, entitled “Departure of President Leaves Dean in Charge at Brooklyn Law” - on June 17, 2013. This stub is still available on the link above:
“Joan Wexler will step down at the end of this month as Brooklyn Law School president, a position she took in 2010 after serving 16 years as the school's dean, the chairman of Brooklyn Law's board of trustees announced Thursday. Dean Nicholas Allard, who was hired last July, will now have sole responsibility for running the 1,000-student school.”
Apparently, the rats didn’t waste any time trying to sell off some of their assets. The academic thieves at this ABA-accredited dung heap are trying to stay feasible.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, 80th ranked Brooklyn Law Sewer is struggling to stay afloat. The law school cockroaches riding on this pile of moist excrement simply do not have much room for error, since it is not attached to a college or univer$ity. Then again, this chronological series of events may not be significant. After all, the pigs claim that the school is in good shape. And fundamentally dishonest, $elf-$erving “law professors” and deans should be taken at their word when it comes to their filthy industry, correct?!?!

First Tier Toilet George Washington University Law School Lowers Its Admissions Standards, in Order to Get Asses in Seats
More Great News!: On March 3, 2014, the GW Hatchet published staff writer Jacqueline Thomsen’s piece labeled “Law school becomes less selective.” This is an independent, student newspaper at George Wa$hington Univer$ity. Look at this opening:
“If you want a spot in the No. 21 law school in the country, it’s now a lot easier to get in.
Forty-two percent of applicants secured admission to the GW Law School last year – eroding selectivity by 13 percentage points in a single year as the school tried to amass tuition dollars despite declining application numbers.
But the numbers show an even more extreme picture of how the school's admissions have changed over the past few years. In 2004, GW Law School accepted just 17 percent of applicants, a standard that helped it rise in the rankings and maintain elite status.
Accepting more applicants last year enabled the college to grow its incoming class by one-fifth after record-low enrollment cut into tuition revenue. The college has also had to foot $2 million to $3 million a year to pay stipends to recent graduates who can only find short-term, unpaid legal jobs.
Gregory Maggs, the school’s interim dean, and Sophia Sim, the assistant dean of admissions, declined to comment last week on whether they were concerned by the increase, what selectivity meant for the school or their plans moving forward.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, you read that correctly. The supposed 21st greatest law school in the nation accepted 42% of applicants last year! According to this article, back in 2004, this figure stood at a mere 17 percent. This represents a 147% increase in acceptance rate from 2004, i.e. (42-17/17)100.
This post also contained the following gem:
“GW’s yield rate – the number of students who accept an offer of admission – also dropped this year to 16.7 percent, the lowest the school has seen in at least a decade.
Other schools, like New York and Emory universities, have opted to shrink the size of their law schools, in part because of the decline in legal jobs. Less than half of the GW Law School’s Class of 2012 secured full-time salaried jobs nine months after graduation.
Only one peer school, American University, saw a bigger slide in its selectivity than GW's. Southern Methodist University’s law school had the next biggest jump, increasing its acceptance rate by 7 percentage points this fall.” [Emphasis mine]
How do you like that, bitches?!?! College graduates and the general public now have much better information about your overpriced, garbage product. As a result, they are less inclined to consign themselves to a lifetime of soul-crushing debt - for a piece of paper from your commode. Again, less than half of this toilet’s 2012 graduating class landed full-time salaried positions - within nine months of receiving their degrees.
Real Legal Job Placement: On April 10, 2013, Dan Filler posted a Faculty Lounge entry entitled “New Law School Rankings: Employment Data Cleaned Of School Funded Jobs” This article is based off of each ABA-accredited diploma mill’s Class of 2012 ABA Employment Report. As the text and title make clear, the figures pertain to JD Required positions that are full-time, long term - and exclude law school funded jobs.
Under these measures, George Washington University Law Sewer has the 76th best placement rate, with 60.35% of 2012 grads landing real jobs. The following ABA-accredited trash pits had better employment outcomes for their students: Mercer University; Campbell University; $eTTon Haul; University of South Dakota; Northern Illinois University; Florida International; Texas Tech; University of New Hampshire; University of Arkansas-Little Rock. Who wouldn’t consider this a tremendous accomplishment?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the George Wa$hington Univer$ity JD Class of 2012 who incurred debt for law school - as $128,341. Then again, only 84 percent of this commode’s 2012 class took on such foul debt. Remember that this figure does not include undergraduate debt – and it also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
Conclusion: The pigs at “The” George Wa$hington Univer$ity Law Sewer are starting to feel the heat. In sum, they have consciously decided to lower admi$$ions “standards,” in order to increase enrollment. What beacons of integrity, huh?!?! Keep in mind that this dung heap has the 76th highest placement rate - for real legal jobs - yet is $omehow rated as the 21st best law school in the country, by US “News” & World Report.
In the final analysis, the law school swine have been pummeled with facts, charts, graphs, industry statements, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, etc. In response, the bastards can only muster a few weak-ass, baseless claims, i.e. “There will soon be a shortage of lawyers.” If the bitches and hags at this toilet become any less selective in their admi$$ion$ process, then they will soon start accepting half of their applicants. Thank all of you for helping to make this possible. We still aim to put the academic thieves’ faces, snouts and carcasses in the ground.

Mainstream News Source Asks the Big Question: On February 24, 2014, CNN Money published a Maya Itah article labeled “Why do so many people hate law school?” From the opening:
“You know law schools are deeply troubled when you ask a dean what it feels like to be under constant fire and he answers the question with a question of his own.
"When you say 'coming under fire,' what are we really talking about?" asks John Corkery, dean of the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. "Which fire are we talking about?"
You can't blame him for seeking clarity. Truth is, law schools have not merely fallen out of favor in recent years, as jobs have become scarce and unemployment among freshly minted JD graduates has soared. Law schools have become the most despised part of the academy.
Most people associate lawyers with misery: an unfair lawsuit, a divorce. But at least previous attacks had come from outside of the profession. In recent years, plenty of criticism has come from insiders, mostly law school professors who acknowledge that schools have supplied far too many lawyers than the market can absorb, and from graduates who now carry six-figure debt loads and can't get jobs in law.
Corkery's school has been sued by its graduates for embellishing employment prospects. When asked if he considers his position difficult, though, he deflects: "The fire I'm thinking of is that there are a lot less people going to law school," he says.
It's telling that Corkery first lists a problem that afflicts the schools rather than the graduates. He's on the mark about one thing, though: Law schools are trying to put out fires from all directions.” [Emphasis mine]
As I have said for years on this blog - as well as on other sites and forums - the law school pigs DO NOT GIVE ONE DAMN about their students or recent graduates. To the academic thieves, these young men and women are a means to an end, i.e. the cockroaches need asses in seats, in order to get their claws on those federally-backed student loans.
From Pig Face’s Faculty Bio: Click on the link above, in order to access John Corkery’s JML$ page. Take a look at this portion:
“Dean Corkery has testified as an expert witness in matters of professional responsibility and has been a member of the teaching faculty for the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission's Professional Responsibility Institute. He was a member of the Chicago Bar Association's Board of Managers for two years and has been a co-writer of the CBA's annual Gridiron musical, "Christmas Spirits," since 1973. He is the author of Illinois Civil and Criminal Evidence (2000).”
Of course, this piece of human waste wouldn’t know “professional responsibility” if it bit him on his portly ass. Yet, he may be well-coached in the area of profe$$ional re$pon$iblity. By the way, does anyone else notice that Cockroach John Corkery resembles a fatter, paler, slightly retarded version of John Lithgow?!?! In fact, he seems even crazier than the actor’s oddball character portrayals.
Other Reasons Why People Despise Law School:
Look at these average law student indebtedness figures for the JD Class of 2012. Remember, these totals do not include interest that accrues while the student is enrolled for three years. It also does not take debt from undergrad into account. Yet, this average amount of additional debt stood at $168,800 - for this cohort at FOURTH TIER TRASH PIT TTTThoma$ Jeffer$on Sewer of Law! Yes, who wouldn’t want to take on such filthy debt from a garbage heap, right?!?!
According to the NALP Class of 2012 National Summary Report, 84.7 percent of this massive cohort was employed within nine months of graduation. Of course, this figure includes non-law positions, attorney jobs, part-time and full-time work, plus long term and temporary posts. If you worked at State Farm or tended bar, you were considered "employed."
Overall, there were 46,364 members of the JD Class of 2012 – competing for a total of 28,567 jobs labeled “bar passage required.” Keep in mind that not all of those positions were traditional attorney openings. Then again, only 45,434 graduates had their info sent to NALP. Using the entire class size, a mere 61.6% of all JDs ended up finding such legal work, i.e. 28,567/46,364.
From the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook, under Job Outlook:
“Employment of lawyers is expected to grow by 10 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Competition for jobs should continue to be strong because more students are graduating from law school each year than there are jobs available.” [Emphasis mine]
For $ome rea$on, the swine continue to squeal "There is going to be a shortage of lawyers soon, due to so many Boomers getting ready to retire." The lying bitches and hags are simply ignoring reality. What beacons of integrity, huh?!?!
Conclusion: The law schools have been exposed as diploma mills, by various online critics. Now that college grads have access to better information, ABA-accredited trash pits - such as Fourth Tier John Marshall Law Sewer - are having a much harder time attracting applicants and students. Hell, this is also the case for decent schools. You are welcome, bitches.
In the end, law students and graduates have effectively sandblasted the toilets - armed with the facts, figures and justified anger. You don’t see too many blogs from dental, medical or veterinary students telling you how badly their school sucks filthy goat balls, do you?! SKYROCKETING tuition - coupled with pathetic job prospects and lies from the pigs, as well as a lack of learning hard skills - has caused people to speak up about the law school scam. The “educators” expect these financial rape victims to simply keep their mouths shut. Now, the only thing these bastards/perpetrators can look forward to is getting pummeled in return, for their horrid conduct.
