ABA-Accredited Toilets in Indiana Experience a Fierce Plunge in Enrollment
The Excellent News Continues: On February 7, 2015, the Indianapolis Business Journal published a J.K. Wall piece entitled “ ‘No relief’ for law school enrollment slump.” The entire article is fascinating, and it provides real insight into how the pigs view their students. Take at look at this wonderful opening:
“After three down years for law school enrollment, Austen Parrish expected a rebound of applications and enrollment this year at Indiana University Maurer School of Law.
But it isn’t happening.
The law school, which Parrish leads, saw the number of first-year law students decline 10 percent this school year on top of the nearly 25-percent decline in first-year enrollment it suffered from 2010 to 2013.
A similar story is playing out at most law schools in Indiana and the nation. Enrollment has fallen at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law at IUPUI and Valparaiso University Law School in northwest Indiana.
And a law school started recently by Indiana Institute of Technology in Fort Wayne has enrolled only a third of the students it expected.
In response, Indiana’s law schools are not replacing retiring faculty, spending more on recruiting, creating programs for non-attorney types of legal education, and experimenting with an educational approach that responds to what many see as permanent shifts in demand for legal services.” [Emphasis mine]
Perhaps, Cockroach Austen Parrish will take a pay cut in his big-ass, unjustified salary - in order to help out his fellow academic thieves. In a just world, these swine would be taken out back and flogged severely. Later on, the story continued:
Normally, law school grads would be sucked up by private law firms. But firms aren’t hiring as much for a host of reasons, IU Maurer professor Bill Henderson wrote in Pepperdine Law Review in a searing 2013 article titled “A Blueprint for Change.”
[Pig] Henderson, named last month by National Jurist magazine as the most influential person in legal education, noted that more corporate clients insist on fee-based contracts rather than paying for billable hours. Also, many clients refuse to pay for work performed by junior associates—that is, recent law school graduates.
Those trends have squeezed the percentage of hours for which law firms are paid—versus what they actually worked—to about 80 percent from more than 90 percent five years ago.
On top of that, fast-growing companies are performing electronic discovery and due diligence—the kinds of things recent law school grads were often assigned—with computer algorithms or lawyers in India.
“The demand for our core product—traditionally trained law school graduates—is collapsing,” Henderson wrote. He added, “Stated bluntly, the legal profession is becoming a subset of a larger legal industry that is increasingly populated by nonlawyers, technologists, and entrepreneurs.”
The drop-off in demand for lawyers is so serious that some law schools could go out of business.” [Emphasis mine]
For $ome rea$on, the law school cockroaches fail to mention the slow death of the billable hour to their students and potential victims, during either the application process or at orienTTTaTTTion. A mere oversight on their part, right?!?! By the way, you could easily replace these worthless, tenured pieces of trash with lectures on DVD.
Other Coverage: On January 10, 2015, Jim Vasallo’s entry, “Enrollment at Law Schools in Indiana Continues to Drop,” was posted on JD Journal. Focus on the brief excerpt below:
“Maurer School of Law is not the only one in Indiana suffering from a drop in enrollment. Valparaiso University Law School and the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law at IUPUI have also suffered through a drop in enrollment.
A brand new law school started by Indiana Institute of Technology in Fort Wayne did not bring in the number of students it expected to do so.
Susan Fitzgerald, a higher education analyst from Moody’s Investors Service, said, “This continued decrease in student demand is consistent with our belief that the legal industry is experiencing a fundamental shift rather than a cyclical trend.” [Emphasis mine]
You’re welcome, bitches! Do you understand the importance of that last statement? That was from Moody’s, not some angry law grad working as a doc review monkey. It is great to see that college grads are now better informed – due to these blogs and mainstream articles on the scam – and making wise decisions.
Conclusion: I enjoy watching the law school pigs burn to a crisp. Who doesn’t enjoy the smell of bacon?! Just think of the numbers of young lives these bastards have collectively ruined, over the course of their academic avocation. Once you take that into account, you will not feel one ounce of sympathy for these “educators” getting bought out and bounced. In the final analysis, it is only a matter of time before a few of these dung heaps shut down. Univer$itie$ will not continue to purchase garbage law schools, and college “presidents” will not keep shelling out large amounts of cash in order to keep these filthy turds afloat.
