Pig Nicholas Allard, Dean of Crooklyn Law School, Sticks His Hoof in His Mouth Yet Again Regarding the Big, Mean Bar Exam
Selfishness on Full Display: On August 20, 2015, BloombergBusiness published a Natalie Kitroeff piece that was simply entitled “Are Lawyers Getting Dumber?” This article is most notable for the fact that Erica Moeser, head of the National Conference of Bar Examiners, wiped her ass with Nicholas Allard’s snout. Take a look for yourself:
“Young people’s aversion to law school is a natural reaction to a saturated job market, says Jim Leipold, the executive director of the National Association for Law Placement, which tracks employment outcomes for recent law grads. “There was definitely an oversupply of law students,” Leipold says.
On the day the first exams are leaving her fiefdom in July, [Erica] Moeser wants to talk about the LSAT, the law school entrance exam. She pulls out a magazine page. “This is my favorite chart.” One axis shows the change in law students’ LSAT scores at the 25th percentile since 2010, meaning the people who were at the bottom quartile of test takers. Most schools have seen scores at that strata decline. The other axis shows change in enrollment over the same period. Almost every school has lost students, as fewer and fewer young people apply. Some places, Moeser suggests, are dropping their standards dramatically in the interest of stemming that tide. “Feast your eyes on New York,” she says, flipping to a table that has the scatter plot’s data. Her finger lands on Brooklyn Law School, where [Cockroach Nicholas] Allard, her loudest critic, runs the show. In five years the bottom quartile of Allard’s students saw test scores drop 9 points—a steeper decline than at 196 other law schools.” [Emphasis mine]
As has been well-documented, the law school swine have lowered the admi$$ion$ “standards” further, in response to fewer applicants over the past several years. After all, the bitches and hags only care about one thing: federal student loan money! Scroll down to the conclusion:
“When fewer people pass the exam, Allard says, poor and working-class Americans suffer in another way: “Most people in America can’t afford lawyers. Most small businesses can’t afford lawyers. The biggest cause of that is that there are too few lawyers being produced.” The bar exam, he says, “perpetuates the status quo in a way that keeps qualified, motivated people from becoming lawyers and deprives most people of affordable legal services.”
Paul Campos, a professor at the University of Colorado Law School and author of the 2012 book Don’t Go to Law School (Unless), cannot suppress a laugh when presented with that logic. “There’s a shortage of lawyers in this country the same way that there’s a shortage of Mercedes-Benzes,” he says. “There are many people who want them who don’t have them.” He predicts that pumping out more J.D.s will only lead to more under- or unemployed attorneys.
That’s part of why Moeser says schools should take their students’ professional prospects into account long before they take the bar. The problem, she insists, isn’t that her test discriminates but that law schools looking to put butts in seats are lowering their standards. In the process, she says, they create false expectations. “You’ve got this underclass in law schools who are really keeping the lights on but not reaping the benefit.” Moeser expects the reckoning to continue. “I would anticipate the scores will drop again, if I had to guess,” she says, her mouth drawing a straight line across her face. “I don’t anticipate a rebound.” [Emphasis mine]
In the final analysis, the “educators” merely want to get as many asses in seats as possible. It's great to see the NCBE chief publicly acknowledge this fact. The academic thieves do not care what happens to those students upon graduation. They know that the American Bar Association criminals will not remove their accreditation – even if bar passage rates continue to drop. However, the jackals are aware that if those numbers decrease any further, than even many lemmings will stop applying to these cesspools and trash pits.

“I just want to throw up reading that crap. These deans are totally unhinged. Just go away. Close your freaking doors and find something else to do with your life besides taking promissory notes for 150k from people who can't even crack 150 on the LSAT. It's a disgrace and it's shameful.
WHERE IS THE ABA?! THE REGULATORS OF THIS "PROFESSION!!!!" COME ON MAN, SERIOUSLY CUT THIS CRAP OUT. PUT AN END TO IT.” [Emphasis mine]
Check out this epic beat-down from “ibrslave,” on August 20, 2015.
“Wow, wow! Brooklyn dramatically lowers its admission standards and then more of its graduates begin failing the bar. Any objective observer, hell a 6th grader, can understand the cause and effect. But, Dean Allard blames the bar examiners. The icing on the cake, however, is Dean Allard pretending like a $4,000 bar exam is the impediment to poor law grads becoming lawyers. How many tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars has Brooklyn and Dean Allard taken from these same poor students? Dean Allard cannot be serious.
I fully support the bar examiners for holding their ground against the likes of Dean Allard.” [Emphasis mine]
The pig is getting roasted to a crisp, on that thread. Anyone with an IQ above room temperature can see that Nicholas Allard is a lying sack of excrement who doesn’t give one damn about his students, recent grads, or their financial health. He is simply trying to pass the buck onto someone else, as to why his students are broke-asses and cannot make a living as lawyers.
Conclusion: Avoid the festering dung heap known as Crooklyn Law School. Otherwise, you will likely end up graduating with $150K+ in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, while facing piss poor job prospects. Try repaying such massive student loans on a paltry, annual salary of $40K. Now imagine having children and supporting them, with that debt constantly hanging over your head, Dumbass. You DO NOT NEED to commit financial suicide, in order to support Fat Pig Nicholas Allard and the other cockroaches at Brooklyn Law Sewer. As you can see, the bastard could stand to lose a few pounds.
