TTT Smells of Desperation: Two ABA-Accredited Law Schools Lower Barriers to Entry and “Increase Diversity” for Alaska Residents Who Want to Become Lawyers
Seattle University Sewer of Law’s Overture: On June 10, 2014, the Anchorage Daily News published a piece from Michelle Theriault Boots, under the headline “New Seattle University "satellite campus" will let Alaskans finish law school in Anchorage.” Read the following excerpt:
“This is the second partnership extending law school access to Alaskans announced in recent weeks.
In May, the University of Alaska Anchorage announced a "3+3" program with the Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Ore. that would allow UAA undergraduates with three years of credits to enter the law school early.
Both programs are intended, in part, to lower barriers to attending law school.
The Seattle University program has found an enthusiastic backer in Alaska Supreme Court Chief Justice Dana Fabe, who the university says wrote a letter to the American Bar Association in support of it.
An announcement from the university quotes Fabe as saying she expects the satellite campus to "open doors to legal and judicial careers" to Alaskans and to increase the diversity of lawyers practicing in Alaska.” [Emphasis mine]
I wonder why Dana Fabe has such an intere$t in this project. After all, the bitch is from Cincinatti, Ohio, and went to Cornell for undergrad and attended Northwestern University School of Law – before moving to Alaska in the 1970s.
In the very next paragraph, the article states that there are 2,456 active members of the state bar association. According to the US Census Bureau, Alaska has an estimated 2013 population of 735,132. This means that there is one licensed attorney for every 299.3 residents. Do you think that there are many corporate attorneys out there, or a huge need for broke-ass legal aid dolts, policy advocates, or Public Defenders, i.e. plea bargainers?!?! Clearly, the state does not have a shortage of lawyers – even though it lacks a law school.
WillameTTTe Univer$iTTTy Commode of Law Offers a 3+3 Law Degree: On May 7, 2014, Alaska Public Media posted a Josh Edge piece entitled “UAA, Willamette University Partner To Offer New Law School Opportunity.” Look at this opening:
“There isn’t a law school in Alaska, but the University of Alaska Anchorage is launching a new program to make it easier for Alaskans to attend law school.
It’s a partnership with Willamette University College of Law in Oregon.
Prospective law school students in Alaska face a lot of obstacles, including cost and having to attend school out of state.
Deb Periman, the UAA Legal Studies Program Coordinator, says the goal is to create more options for Alaska students.
“This partnership is designed as a way for very high-achieving, very highly-motivated and focused students to reduce their education costs and be able to get that law degree and their undergraduate degree in six years rather than seven,” Periman said.” [Emphasis mine]
Isn’t it nice how these “educators” are looking out for the students?!?! Of course, the real rea$on is to get more asses in seats, so that the swine can get their hooves on more federally-backed student loans.
In the penultimate paragraph, Edge provided this nonsense – which appears to have been supplied from the toilet, verbatim:
“Job prospects bode well for students who graduate from the program. For the class of 2013, Willamette ranks fifth in job placement among West Coast law schools.”
Nice “fact checking” there, Josh. For some reason, the author failed to mention exactly how many ABA-accredited trash pits are located on the West Coast.
Average Law Student Indebtedness at These Trash Pits: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the $eaTTle Univer$iTTy JD Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $129,548. Hell, 89% of this clogged toilet’s 2013 cohort took on such filthy debt. At Willamette, the numbers were $120,531 and 91 percent, respectively. Remember that these figures do not include undergraduate debt – and they also do not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
Conclusion: The law school pigs are getting desperate for asses in seats. Lily-white VermonTTT Law Sewer is now preying on undergraduate students at historically black colleges and universities. Charleston SOL is starting to target 13-18 year old children. The human waste piles on the ABA recently decided that accredited diploma mills can waive the LSAT requirement for up to ten percent of each class. Now, two law schools – located in different states – are trying to get their hands on Alaska lemmings.
At this rate, law school recruiters will start walking up to strangers in malls and ask them the following: “The U.$. $upreme Court is part of which branch of government: legislative, executive, or judicial?” Those who answer correctly will be signed on the spot and given a $5,000 annual scholarship to attend their commode. Follow-up questions may include: “Oh, your girlfriend has her navel pierced, and she likes to stick her finger up your ass while giving you head?! Congratulations! We’ll add another $2,500 to your yearly award.”
