Fourth Tier Liquid Waste: Loyola University New Orleans College of Law


http://finance.loyno.edu/student-finance/2014-15-graduate-law-tuition-and-fee-schedule

Tuition: According to this document, full-time law students at this trash pit will be charged $21,000 per semester – for Fall 2014 and Spring 2015. Can you think of a better way to spend $42,000 annually?!?! This figure does not include fees.

General costs, IT, and law exam fees will add another $555 each semester. Publications will amount to another $20, and the SBA will pound you in the ass with a one-time charge of $250. A graduation expense will run you $275. This accounts for an extra $1,655 to your gigantic bill. Who wouldn’t want to make such an “investment”?!?! This is practically a steal!

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/law-rankings/page+7

Ranking: At these prohibitive prices, this school must have one hell of a reputation among the academic and legal communities, right?!?! If you believe that, then I suggest that you skip over to the next paragraph. Based on the current listing from US “News” & World Report, Loyola Univer$iTTTTy New Orlean$ Commode of Law is rated as a sweltering, odorous fourth tier pile of trash. Imagine how much tuition would be if this toilet was ranked in the top three tiers!

http://www.loyno.edu/lawcareers/statistics

Employment Placement Statistics: Click on the link for the garbage heap’s Employment Summary for 2011 Graduates. Apparently, the bitches were unable or unwilling to provide more recent data. On page one of this PDF, you will notice that there were 231 total members of this TTTT class. According to this report, only 170 JDs from this cohort were employed – in any capacity – within nine months of receiving their diploma.

Four members of this class did not provide their job status to this cesspool. A total of 11 grads were pursuing a graduate degree full-time, while 42 poor souls were unemployed and seeking work. Another four JDs were jobless and not searching for employment. This represents a pathetic placement rate of 74.9 percent, i.e. 170/227. At least, the waste pile only hired two of its graduates in law school or university funded positions.

Now, scroll down to the next section, Employment Type. You will see that 92 grads went into private practice, including five desperate solos and 55 working in firms of 2-10 lawyers. Conversely, only three damn people from this class were hired by offices of 101-250 attorneys – and two went to work for firms of 251-500 lawyers. Do you still like your odds, moron?!?!

http://lawschooltuitionbubble.wordpress.com/2014/03/11/record-14-law-schools-didnt-report-2013-graduate-debt-to-u-s-news/

Average Law Student Indebtedness: On March 11, 2014, Matt Leichter posted an insightful entry entitled “Record 14 Law Schools Didn’t Report 2013 Graduate Debt to U.S. News.” Look at this portion:

“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:

Loyola (La.) – $124,335 [Emphasis mine]

Keep in mind that this figure does not include debt from undergrad or other degree programs. Plus, it does not consider interest that accrues while the student is enrolled in law school.

http://www.law.loyno.edu/juris-doctor

JD Program Requirement: On this page, you will note the following under Requirements:

Law and Poverty: Students may satisfy the Law and Poverty requirement by fulfilling any one of the following options: take the Law and Poverty course (LAW L781); take the Law and Poverty Seminar (LAW L782); take Street Law (LAW L833); Environmental Justice Seminar (LAW L834); represent low income people in the Clinical Seminar (LAW L897); or perform 50 hours or volunteer pro bono legal services to the poor in one academic year in a setting approved in advance by the coordinator of the pro bono program.” [Emphasis in original]

Yes, after shelling out insane sums of borrowed money to attend this steaming pile of moist excrement, who wouldn’t want to be forced to study “law and poverty”?!?! After all, when you take out ridiculous amounts of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, you will soon join the ranks of the abject poor. Frankly, skid row bums are better off than you financially – since they don’t owe anyone $100K and they can’t have their wages garnished if they default on their loans.

Perhaps, the swine can offer a course labeled “Student Debt and Poverty.” Maybe the whores can design a seminar discussing highly educated debt serfs.  Then again, the rats don’t want the students to focus on how badly they are getting raped by the academic thieves.

Conclusion: Do not even consider attending this private, Catholic dung pile. First, the school is a FOURTH TIER TRASH PIT. Secondly, the pigs and cockroaches did not even supply their average indebtedness figures for the Class of 2013. If the commode is not willing to disclose this basic consumer info, then you know that the bastards are trying to hide something. News flash, Lemming: you WILL NOT BE SERVED WELL by incurring an additional $145K-$175K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a TTTT law degree!

Furthermore, the rodents also failed to furnish Employment Placement data for the Class of 2012. That info was supplied to NALP more than one year ago! You wouldn’t purchase a used car if the dealer refused to give you vital consumer info. If you would not make such allowances for this type of transaction – which you can walk away from later – then why in the hell would you do so for such a serious financial decision that WILL affect you for the rest of your life?!?!

First Tier Foul Stool: Florida State University College of Law


http://www.law.fsu.edu/prospective_students/financing.html

Tuition: The pigs at this commode list the tuition rate on an hourly basis. Florida residents will be charged $686.39 per credit hour, while out-of-state law students will be hit with $1353.46 per unit. As such, in state, full-time students will face a tuition bill of $20,591.70, whereas nonresident, full-time victims will be slapped with $40,603.80 in fees. Who says that public $chool$ are affordable?!?!

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/law-rankings/page+2

Ranking: At such prohibitive costs, one would expect this “institution of higher education” to have one hell of a reputation among the legal and academic communities. According to US “News” & World Report, Florida $tate Univer$ity Commode of Law is rated as the 45th greatest, most remarkable and sensational law school in the entire nation. What a tremendous accomplishment, huh?!?!

Then again, this is the highest-ranked law school in the state of Florida. Let that sink in for a moment. There are 11 ABA-accredited toilets located in the state – and the “best” trash pit is rated 45th overall. At least, other populous states – such as California, Illinois, Texas and New York – each have at least one damn law school listed in the top 15 diploma mills in the U.S.

http://www.law.fsu.edu/placement/employment_data.html

Supposed Employment Placement Rate: On this page, labeled “Employment Data for Recent Graduates,” direct your attention to the JD Class of 2012. You will notice that there were 286 members of this cohort. Employment status was unknown for three people. A total of 255 grads attained some type of work within nine months of receiving their law degrees. This leads to a “placement” rate of 90.1 percent, i.e. 255/283.

Scroll down to the section entitled “Employed Graduates by Type of Employer.” There, you will see that only 109 members of this class landed jobs in law firms. Three desperate souls started solo practices, while another 47 went to work in firms of 2-10 attorneys. A total of 18 ended up in offices with 11-25 lawyers. Conversely, only five were employed by firms of more than 500 attorneys. Do you still like YOUR odds, lemming?!?!

Now, head down to the subsection, “Full-Time Salaries Reported by Employed Graduates.” Note that only 135 JDs from the 2012 class supplied this data to the school. Remember, 255 had secured employment within nine months of graduation. Hell, that is only 52.9% of those with jobs. The overall mean salary was $54,508, with an median of $45,000. The 25th percentile figure was $40,000, while those in the 75th percentile reportedly earned $65,000. Do you understand that, dolt?!?! That means that the “winners” at this garbage heap are not doing that well, at least in relation to their debt and lost income for three years.

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/grad-debt-rankings/page+7

Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the F$U Law Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $79,426. Fully 90% of this clogged toilet’s 2013 cohort took on such toxic debt. Remember that this figure does not include undergraduate debt – and also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.

http://www.law.fsu.edu/journals/transnational/index.html

Majestic Journal Opportunities: As a student at the co-45th most magnificent law school in the United States, you will have the unique chance to write onto the world-renowned Journal of Transnational Law & Policy! Here is a partial description of this publicaTTTion:

“The Journal of Transnational Law & Policy (ISSN 1067-8182) is published once per year at The Florida State University College of Law. The views expressed in published material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the policies or opinions of the Journal, its editors or staff, or Florida State University.

The Journal was founded in 1991 to provide a scholarly forum for discussion of legal developments in the world community. The Journal shares the philosophy articulated by the late Philip C. Jessup, Judge of the International Court of Justice, who defined "transnational law" as "all law which regulates actions or events that transcend national frontiers." The term "transnational" is thus expansive; it includes both the international and comparative dimensions of law.”

If you are in a serious relationship, then be careful who you tell about your journal experience. For instance, if you walk into a bar and tell someone that you are a student editor on this prestigious review, then you run the risk of having SEVERAL trim, tanned southern belles climb on top of you - in an effort to impregnate themselves with your child. If you don’t want to smothered by their supple breasts, then keep this “accomplishment” to yourself. [Disclaimer for na├»ve fools: nothing of this sort will happen. The aforementioned beauties will continue to blow the members of the football, basketball and baseball teams – while not even being aware of your existence.]

Conclusion: Avoid this cesspool at all costs. If this is the best commode you can get into, then you are CLEARLY not cut out to be a future “law professor.” Keep in mind that these “educators” are merely training you to be an academic. However, if you are not attending an elite law school, then you essentially have no shot in hell of landing an article III clerkship and becoming a “professor.”

Also, be leery of the low debt figure cited above. Again, this total does not include interest or student debt from undergrad – or loans for another degree. Who wants to incur an accumulated sum of $120K-$150K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a damn law degree from the 45th best school in the country?!?! In the end, if you had real talent or natural skills, then you would be attending this univer$ity on an athletic “scholarship.”

TTT Smells of Desperation: Two ABA-Accredited Law Schools Lower Barriers to Entry and “Increase Diversity” for Alaska Residents Who Want to Become Lawyers


http://www.adn.com/2014/06/11/3512766/new-seattle-university-satellite.html

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.

http://www.alaskapublic.org/2014/05/07/uaa-willamette-university-partner-to-offer-new-law-school-opportunity/

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.
 
http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/grad-debt-rankings/page+2

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.”

ABA Cockroaches Allow Law School Diploma Mills to Admit 10% of Students Without Taking the LSAT


http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2014/06/aba-allows-law-schools-.html

It’s All About the Money: On June 10, 2014, Paul Caron reported on this developmenTTT in his blog piece, “ABA: Law Schools Can Admit 10% of Students Without LSAT, Must Do Annual Audit of Placement Data, Can't Give Academic Credit for Paid Externships.” Look at the following excerpt:

“The governing council of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar has wrapped up its comprehensive review of the law school accreditation standards.

The [nest of cockroaches], which met Friday in Cleveland, approved five of the six remaining proposed changes in the standards, including one that would permit schools to admit up to 10 percent of their entering class with students who haven’t taken the LSAT and one that would limit the number of transfer credits a school can grant for prior law study not taken as a JD-degree student at an ABA-approved school.” [Emphasis mine]

The pieces of trash at the racketeer influenced and corrupt organization known as the American Bar Association are FULLY AWARE that fewer people are applying to, and enrolling in, ABA-accredited schools. Instead of making the “professors” and administrator pigs do with less, the whores on this committee have lowered “standards” further. As I noted in another forum, I gave these rodents too much credit when I wrote “Before you know it, you will only need to pull a 140 LSAT score and post a pic of your girfriend’s feet on your Personal Statement, in order to gain admission.”

http://outsidethelawschoolscam.blogspot.com/2014/06/declining-applicants-and-declining.html

Other Coverage: On June 10, 2014, “dupednontraditional” authored an excellent OTLSS piece labeled “Declining Applicants and Declining Standards.” He gets right to the meat and potatoes of this garbage deci$ion:

“Look no further than right here:

http://www.lsac.org/lsacresources/data/three-year-volume

Oops. Applicants are down 7.8% over last year, and prior years saw even more precipitous drops. Just like the Fed running the printing press in order to juice the system with more cash, the ABA is trying to juice the faltering legal profession and law schools by removing any semblance of standards. Like a NINA loan during the subprime crisis, you don't need "income" or "assets"...just a pulse.

Which could be fine, maybe, in some universe, if (1) there was an extreme shortage of lawyers, (2) tuition was reasonable, and (3) if a test like the LSAT was keeping qualified people out of the profession by arbitrary and capricious standards.” [Emphasis mine]

As scambloggers have noted, for years: the law school swine do not give one damn about YOU, the student or recent graduate. You are a mere means to an end. The bitches and hags need asses in seats, in order to get their filthy hooves on all those federal dollars. Of course, you can count on the academic thieves to spin this as “ensuring diversity” in the classroom and “profession.” By the way, doesn’t that attitude imply that brown and black people are too damn dumb to get into law school on their own efforts?

http://lawschooltruthcenter.blogspot.com/2014/06/viva-la-innovacion-lsat-less-mandatory.html

The Law School Truth Center published an epically hilarious article, on June 11, 2014, under the headline “Viva la Innovacion! LSAT Less Mandatory Than Yesterday.” Read this gem:

“See? You all bitch that law schools don't try to save students money. Now a tenth of the class doesn't have to pay the LSAT administration fee! Also, now law schools can be more flexible about, like, bringing in diverse candidates who just don't test well.

If you're in a state like Wisconsin, you can now go to law school without taking the LSAT and waive into the bar. The eradication of the severe oppression of taking standardized tests after the SAT may well have begun.” [Emphasis mine]

Keep in mind that Iowa is also considering allowing those who attend in-state law sewers to skip the bar exam. Why don’t the bastards simply get rid of the LSAT altogether, and automatically enroll anyone who has the following qualifications: (a) an IQ above 85; and (b) the desire to go to law school?!?!

Hell, chiropractors go through more stringent requirements than lawyers. At this rate, it will soon be more difficult to get a real estate license or gain CPA certification than to become an attorney.

http://jdunderground.com/all/thread.php?threadId=71576#post994947

Hilarious Commentary: Lastly, check out this epic comment from JDU accountholder “murdock,” which was posted on the thread entitled “ABA Accreditation Standards: Law Schools Can Admit 10% of Students Without LSAT.” It was submitted on June 10, 2014 at 10:10 am:

“This is absolutely disastrous and stupid. Anyone looking to the ABA for even a semblance of reform is clearly going to be monstrously disappointed. Law school has literally become open enrollment for anyone who can sit through the LSAT and spell their name at the top.

Up next, law schools can admit up to 5% of their students without a pulse.” [Emphasis mine]

Hell, I wouldn’t put it past the sick bitches to recruit in the morgue, so that they can enroll corpses into their “prestigious” toilets. Then again, the ABA may decide to limit such “applicants” to those who died of natural causes. After all, the bastards need to maintain some level of “standards,” right?!?!

Conclusion: The law school pigs are simply trying to extend the scam for as long as possible. Once they hit retirement age, they will be happy to watch the $y$tem implode. After all, their deranged mentality is “I got mine. You get yours.” Again, these “educators” do not care what happens to their students.  Likewise, the American Bar Association criminals have ZERO INTEGRITY!  Don’t be surprised if the ABA later permits member schools to waive the LSAT requirement for up to 20 percent of the class. Plus, last year the ABA extended the “placement” rate deadline to 10 months from graduation, in order to bolster those figures. Perhaps, they will also count laying sod or raking leaves for your sister in law as “employment.”

Academic Cockroaches Chirping: UC Irvine School of Law’s Erwin Chemerinky and Carrie Menkel-Meadow Discuss the “Need” for More Legal Training


http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/15/opinion/dont-skimp-on-legal-training.html?_r=0

The Bastards' Opinion Piece: On April 14, 2014, the New York Times published a $elf-$erving op-ed co-written by UC Irvine Sewer of Law dean Erwin Chemerinky and Carrie Menkel-Meadow, who also teaches at his trash pit. The piece was entitled “Don’t Skimp on Legal Training.” Take a look at this opening:

“Legal education, like all education, can certainly be improved, but the widely made claims of a “crisis” are exaggerated and do not reflect the contributions legal education makes to achieving justice and well-being for many in the world. In January, an American Bar Association Task Force on the Future of Legal Education declared that it had rushed to release its report because “the urgency of the problem and the serious threats to public confidence demanded rapid action.” This crisis mentality is not only unfounded, but is also creating pressure for reforms that would make legal education worse, not better.

The claims of imminent catastrophe always focus on three things: the problematic job market for law graduates, the increased cost of legal education and the decrease in applications for law schools.

According to the Association for Legal Career Professionals, as recently as 2007, close to 92 percent of law-school graduates reported being employed in a paid, full-time position nine months after graduation. True, the employment figures had dropped by 2012, the most recent year for which data is available, but only to 84.7 percent.

The number of graduates who are employed is higher if the measure is over a longer interval than just the nine months after graduation. And with the economy improving and law-school enrollments shrinking, there will be more jobs available for new law graduates.

As with any other field of study, the ability to get a job out of law school obviously depends on where a person went to school and how he or she performed.” [Emphasis mine]

Do you understand that, Lemming?!?! Everyone’s favorite con$titutional law casebook author is putting the blame on YOU for not being able to land a good job. The onus is on you, i.e. if you were smarter or harder working, then you would have attended a better school – and if you go to a low-ranked toilet and can’t find a job, that is on your shoulders.  For $ome rea$on, these sewer rats have failed to ask why third and fourth tier schools should even exist.

By the way, Erwin: do you think that medical school students are screwed if they attend institutions such as Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine or Baylor College of Medicine?!?! In your mind, must those students earn stellar grades, in order to land decent employment?

Try not to laugh too hard when you see this portion of Chemerinsky’s idiotic conclusion:

“Law school faculties, in their teaching and their scholarship, must deal with the emerging problems of the 21st century. Law schools need to develop new courses to provide students with the expertise to deal with the crucial problems of our time in fields like banking law, national security, conflict resolution, food safety, Internet law and migration policy. There should be “problem-based” seminars in fields such as public health, homelessness, environmental habitat regulation and world peace." [Emphasis mine]

You can’t make this up, people. These two academic thieves believe that the U.S. taxpayer – the guarantor of those student loans – should foot the bill for such nonsense. I wonder why they feel that way. How many desperate solo practitioners are dealing with migration policy or national security?!?! Will clients benefit from having a lawyer who sat through a stupid-ass seminar on environmental habitat regulation? How will the general public be aided by having JDs, working at State Farm, who have academic knowledge of homelessness and world peace?!

http://lawlemmings.tumblr.com/post/83469814148/erwin-chemerinsky-aprils-most-repugnant-law

Other Coverage: After this pile of garbage was published in the New York Times, Law School Lemmings authored an entry labeled “Erwin Chemerinsky - April’s Most Repugnant Law Professor/Dean/Grifter.”  Check out this biting commentary:

“On April 16, 2014, the NYT disgraced itself by publishing free advertising for the law school business by Chemerinsky (he shared his byline with fellow law school grifter Carrie Menkel-Meadow). He conceded that the legal education grifting model can “be improved” but he offered no solutions to solve the central problems of the law school industry: (1) law schools charging and receiving outrageous tuition rates because government-backed lenders are providing the money, not students; (2) law schools lying and misleading about the job opportunities that await grads; and (3) non-dischargeability of student loan debt.

Chemerinsky, who pulls down more than half a million dollars per year from UC-Irvine Law School with his wife, wants to keep the sweet, sweet cash flowing. Selfless public servant that he is, Chemerinsky says two years of law school just isn’t enough. How are our nation’s indebted, jobless law students going to learn about the “crucial problems of our time” in just two years?! Preposterous! We can rest assured the problem of saddling a new generation with unpayable debt, leaving them unable to afford a home or car and completely lacking purchasing power, is not among the problems Chemerinsky believes are “crucial.” [Emphasis mine]

When you are pulling down that type of cash, you will do and say anything in order to keep the scam going, folks. These two pigs do not give one damn about YOU, the typical law student or graduate.  They simply want to keep raking in big salaries for their minimal "work."

Conclusion: The University of California, Irvine Sewer of Law is a rotten cesspool that hired these academic swindlers. Erwin Chemerinsky, from the onset, has sought to game the rating system – by limiting the number of first year slots, giving them free admission for three years, and ensuring that this cohort had legal employment. We’ll see if it pays off when US “News” & World Report prints its next ream of toilet paper, known as its annual rankings of ABA-accredited law school diploma mills.

Lastly, I love how the pile of chemical waste currently “serving” as dean of this commode stated that the timeline after graduation should be lengthened – so that the trash pits can attain higher “placement” figures. Apparently, the rodent fails to understand that MANY law grads who land attorney positions are out of work within 1-3 years. Then again, we know that the $chool$ and state bar association hags will not bother to track the job status of these men and woman, after a certain time period.

News Flash: the Northern California Lawyer Job Market is Still Glutted and Abysmal


http://www.jdjournal.com/2014/05/28/employment-numbers-for-sacramento-area-law-grads-dismal/

Overpriced Toilet Paper: On May 28, 2014, JD Journal published a Jim Vassallo piece, under the headline “Employment Numbers for Sacramento Area Law Grads Dismal.” Look at this opening:

“Despite an improving economy, law graduates in the Sacramento area are not seeing much success. The same thing can be said for much of California, according to the Sacramento Bee. Of the law students who graduated from law school in 2013, 20 percent of them were still unemployed nine months following graduation. This is an increase from the 16 percent in 2012, according to new data from the American Bar Association.

In another category, 25 percent of 2013 law grads in the state were working in part-time positions or in jobs that do not require a legal education.” [Emphasis mine]

That’s no big deal, right?!?! After all, who doesn’t want to piss away three years of their life - and incur an additional $140K-$175K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt - for the “opportunity” to work in a job that does not require a law degree?! Plus, the academic parasites got paid well for their swindle.

Two paragraphs later, the author provides the following gem:

“Graduates from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento are really struggling. Thirty-two percent of the school’s graduates from 2013 were looking for work nine months after graduating. In 2012, the number was just 19 percent. In 2013, just three of the 21 law schools in the state with accreditation from the ABA had a higher rate of unemployment than McGeorge.

“There are people who have been out of school for two or three years and have not found their first law job,” said B.J. Susich, an attorney from Boutin Jones and president of the Sacramento County Bar Association. “It’s a bottleneck. Just because hiring is better than it was, it doesn’t mean that you can burn through the inventory.”

School officials from McGeorge said that the 2013 class was one of the largest in the school’s history, with some 320 graduates. Many of them had planned to stay in the Sacramento area to practice law, but there was not enough demand for such a large group of new lawyers.” [Emphasis mine]

Yes, this is a pre$TTTigiou$ in$TTTiTTTuTTTion of “higher learning.” You can see that the bitches and hags at this filth pit are already making excuses for the commode’s pathetic placement rate. By the way, lemmings: scambloggers and other critics of “legal education” have pointed out - for years – that there is a logjam of recent attorneys. Now that the head of the Sacramento County Bar Association has confirmed this, hopefully you will start paying attention. Plus, why in the hell should firms and other employers hire someone who graduated from law school two or three years ago, when they can choose from the latest pool of JDs?!?!

Sharp Decrease in Enrollment at California Dung Pits: On February 18, 2014, Staci Zaretsky’s piece, “Ouch: The Law Schools With The Biggest Drops in Enrollment Since 2010,” appeared in ATL. Look at this portion:

“In a recent study, National Jurist compared data from the 2010-2011 school year to data from the 2013-2014 school year using numbers from law schools’ most recent American Bar Association 509 reports. Without further ado, here are the 10 law schools with the biggest drops in enrollment since 2010:

University of La Verne: -66.2 percent
Cooley Law School: -40.6 percent 
Catholic University: -39.5 percent 
New York Law School: -38.7 percent 
University of Dayton: -38.5 percent 
Pacific McGeorge School of Law: -38.4 percent
Widener University – Harrisburg: -36.9 percent 
University of New Hampshire: -34.8 percent 
Seton Hall University: -34.7 percent 
Liberty University: -33.9 percent” [Emphasis mine]

Apparently, college grads are starting to become wiser consumers – at least when it comes to “legal education.” This had to happen at some point. Although the University of La Verne Commode of Law is in Ontario, it is still located in California – so I have highlighted it above.

Ranking: According to US “News” & World Report, the Univer$iTTTy of Pacific McGeorge Sewer of Law is rated as the co-146th greatest, most amazing and wonderful law school in the entire country. What a tremendous accomplishment, huh?!?! The Univer$iTTTTTy of La Verne Commode of Law is listed as “Unranked,” i.e. a fifth tier piece of trash.

Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the University of the Pacific McGeorge Law Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $142,784. Hell, 91 percent of this filthy toilet’s 2013 cohort 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. The cockroaches at La Verne refused to provide their indebtedness figures to this publication.

Conclusion: Avoid the grossly overpriced sewers in this state. If you are not attending Stanford, or perhaps Cal-Berkeley, on a significant scholarship – or you are not wealthy or SERIOUSLY CONNECTED – then don’t even bother attending law school in California. Unless, of course, you want to end up being a pathetic, broke bastard with no future, i.e. Joshua Ray Adams. Take the cost of living into account too, including the ridiculously high state and local taxes. Lastly, California is also the SECOND-MOST GLUTTED lawyer job market in the country, genius.
