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.
