Seventy-Nine Cockroaches/Law School Deans Demand Full Transparency from the National Conference of Bar Examiners, Because Their Schools Lowered Admissions Standards and Bar Pass Rates Plummeted in July 2014
Demand Letter from the Academic Thieves: On November 25, 2014, Cockroach Kathryn Rand, dean of Third Tier University of North Dakota Sewer of Law, sent a letter addressed to Erica Moeser, president of the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Hell, the parasite even put this letter on official law school letterhead. Rand seeks to kiss Moeser’s ass on page one, before issuing this comical salvo:
“Statement of Law School [Pigs]
We, the undersigned law school deans, respectfully request that the National Conference of Bar Examiners facilitate a thorough investigation of the administration and scoring of the July 2014 bar exam. The methodology and results of the investigation should be made fully transparent to all law school deans and state bar examiners.
In particular, the investigation should examine the integrity and fairness of the July 2014 exam as well as the overall reliability of the multistate components of the exam. We request that the NCBE provide all data in its possession on reliability and fairness of the July 2014 exam and all data necessary for independent review for independent expert review of the same.
We also request that the NCBE provide the evidence it relied on in making the statement that the takers of the bar exam in July 2014 were less able than those in 2013.
Moving forward, we ask that the NCBE work with the law school deans and state bar examiners to release to law schools detailed scoring and scaling data for our respective graduates.” [Emphasis mine]
For $ome rea$on, these bitches and hags don’t believe that THEY should submit their job placement figures or incoming class data to an outside, independent review or audit. Conversely, these jackals feel that other organizations should submit to the demands and whims of these “educators.” By the way, I have profiled 75 of the 79 dung heaps represented on that list. The highest-ranked in$titution on that lineup is the Brigham Young Univer$ity J. Reuben Clark Law $chool. The toilet is currently rated 36th “best” in the nation, by US “News” & World Report.
Then again, what do you expect from a university named after a man who – according to the LDS Church - had only 11 damn days of schooling?!?! The univer$ity still bans beards on campus – even though Brigham Young sported a big-ass beard for most of his adult life.
WSJ Law Blog Reports: Jacob Gershman’s piece, “Law School Deans Question Sharp Decline in Bar Exam Scores,” appeared in the November 26, 2014 edition of the Wall Street Journal Law Blog. From the opening:
“Law schools are turning up the heat on the nation’s leading bar exam group over what they say is an inexplicable drop in student scores on the most recent test.
Dozens of law school deans across the country attached their names to a letter sent to the National Conference of Bar Examiners on Tuesday demanding a “thorough investigation of the administration and scoring” of the July 2014 bar exam.
The letter followed reports of many states, including Texas, Idaho, Iowa, Oregon and Washington, seeing an unusually steep decline in bar exam scores compared with last year’s performance. Passage rates plunged by more than 10 percentage points in some cases.
The NCBE, the Wisconsin-based non-profit that prepares widely used standardized portions of the bar exam, says the results of the July test are troubling, but says the tests aren’t to blame. The group says students this year just didn’t do as well as previous years’ cohorts.
Law schools — many of which are straining to keep up enrollment in a time of sagging demand for law degrees — have bristled at the response.” [Emphasis mine]
This is the likely result when ABA-accredited law schools have collectively become LESS SELECTIVE. This is compounded by the fact that many of that those with high LSAT scores are now declining to apply to law school, while dumbasses continue their pursuit of a “legal education.”
Other Coverage: On November 27, 2014, the Law School Truth Center published a hilarious entry entitled “Happy Thanksgiving; I’m Thankful for These Seventy-Nine Heroic Law Deans.” Check out this portion of his conclusion:
“[T]he war is all about whether you want rigid bar examinations by a cold, opaque NCBE or open, fair, and flexible bar examinations whose administrators cower to threats of auditing and mass criticism, helping the status quo to carry on for another year. Heck, just by sending a few letters, they've already virtually guaranteed that bar examination pass rates will improve next year in several states. No way those bureaucrats want to further ruffle feathers with law deans.
So hail these brave patriots, and let us celebrate the institutions that they serve. Albany, Ave Maria, Barry, Capital, Charleston, Drake, Golden Gate, Hofstra, JMLS, La Verne, NYLS, Northeastern, Pace, Roger Williams, St. Marys, St. Thomas (2x), TJLS, Touro, Cooley, Vermont, Whittier, Widener, and all the others are fortunate to have leaders who understand the need for transparency and accountability when the law schools may have an adverse result. God bless them, every one.” [Emphasis mine]
Seeing that the typical law dean practiced law for roughly 8 minutes, before running to the safe confines of academia, I doubt that the NCBE bureaucrats are afraid to scuffle with these tramps. However, they probably don’t want to put up with the hassle and constant bitching and moaning. Look for next year’s July bar results to improve dramatically, even though applicants continue to devolve. I wouldn't be surprised to see law school deans next start a campaign against LSAC, complaining that the entrance exam is too difficult for many applicants.
Conclusion: These 79 pieces of trash DO NOT GIVE ONE DAMN about their students or recent graduates. They simply want to give the appearance of caring about their former pupils – in order to attract more applicants. Anyone with a full scale IQ above 70 can see through this nonsense. However, seeing that idiots with 140 LSAT scores are still applying to law school, plenty of morons will be taken in by such empty, cynical gestures.
