The Sewer Rats Need More Money: On July 24, 2015, the NaTTTional Juri$TTT published a staff article entitled “NYLS leases space to Urochester.” Look at this opening:
“New York Law School has found use for its open space. The University of Rochester's Simon Business School will move from midtown Manhattan to the Tribeca campus this summer through a co-location agreement between the two professional schools.
New York Law School enrolled reached 1,923 in 2010, soon after it opened a new 235,000-square-foot building. However, since then its numbers have dropped. It had 968 students in 2014-2015.
The agreement with the University of Rochester is a multi-year arrangement that aims to form an innovative partnership to optimize resources and capitalize on the different schedules and programs of the two institutions.” [Emphasis mine]
Keep in mind that New York Law Sewer is a free-standing toilet, i.e. it does not have a parent university or college to help bail it out during rough stretches. It is extremely impressive that total enrollment has damn nearly been cut in half in the span of about four years. Then again, I’m sure the rodents “planned” to have smaller classes, right?!?!
TTThe TTT AnnouncemenTTT: Back on April 28, 2015, NYL$ issued a press release labeled “University of Rochester’s Simon Business School New York City Center to Co-locate at New York Law School.” Yes, it’s great to see that attorneys are so great at being concise in their language. Here is a partial description:
“The New York City location of the University of Rochester’s Simon Business School will move from midtown Manhattan to the Tribeca campus of New York Law [Sewer] (NYLS) this summer through a unique co-location agreement between the two professional schools, announced Joel Seligman, President of the University of Rochester, and Anthony W. Crowell, President and Dean of New York Law School.
The agreement between the two professional academic institutions is a creative, multi-year arrangement that aims to form an innovative partnership to optimize resources and capitalize on the different schedules and programs of the two institutions. The Simon Business School offers courses in New York City for 13-month part-time graduate programs designed for working professionals, with M.S. programs in finance, management, and health care management. Simon students attend classes primarily on weekends, while students of NYLS, which offers full- and part-time law degree programs and a two-year J.D. honors program, attend primarily during the week with some weekend options. The business school, which had been located in a commercial office building, will move its NYC administrative offices and academic course offerings to the NYLS facility. Students will be able to take advantage of the classrooms, library, meeting and event spaces, and other amenities of NYLS’s high-tech urban campus, located at 185 West Broadway (at Leonard Street). The move to Lower Manhattan, which is under review by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, will provide students with a comprehensive and unmatched learning environment, along with direct access to Wall Street, the City’s civic center, and tech corridor. This will be the only co-located law school and business school under one roof in New York City.
“Lower Manhattan is the epicenter both for business and law in the global economy. New York Law School’s Strategic Plan emphasized a priority of the school to develop strategic alliances that could provide students unprecedented opportunities in business or financial services. The co-location of NYLS and the Simon Business School’s NYC Center creates a unique opportunity to harness the synergies that exist between the two institutions. We look forward to welcoming the business school faculty, staff, and students to our campus and building a culture of community between our schools, while maintaining each individual institution’s identity,” said Anthony Crowell, President and Dean of New York Law School.” [Emphasis mine]
Take a moment to reflect on the following idiotic terms used in the release above: “innovative partnership,” “co-located,” “strategic plan,” “unprecedented opportunities,” “harness the synergies,” and “building a culture of community.” Hell, members of Congre$$ and their professional handlers don’t distort things to such a douche level.
Does anyone with a brain stem think that NYL$ is resorting to this measure, because they simply wanted to help out another “institution of higher learning”?!?! By the way, no one gives a damn if Lower Manhattan is the supposed epicenter for business and law? Decent law firms do not want to hire graduates of third tier schools.
Ranking: As you can see, US “News” & World Report rates New York Law Sewer as the co-127th greatest, most phenomenal and incredible law school in the entire United States! In fact, it “only” shares this distinct honor with the following SEVEN commodes: Chapman, Cleveland State “University,” Drexel, Quinnipiac, Akron, University of Idaho, and UMKC. Yes, what prestigious company, huh?!?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: According to USN&WR, the average law student indebtedness for those members of the NYL$ Class of 2014 who incurred debt for law school was $166,622. Plus, 83% of this unfortunate cohort took on such toxic debt for their TTT law degree. This figure does not include debt from undergrad or other programs, nor does it take accrued interest into account.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, NYL$ seems to be stretched financially. The rodents are located in a pricey-ass section of expensive Manhattan. Yet, the students are enrolled in a firmly entrenched TTT. Biglaw firms will not hire the toilet’s graduates. The total number of students at New York Law Sewer has dropped SIGNIFICANTLY, since the pigs opened a new 235,000 square foot facility in 2010. Since tuition rates at this dung pit are so high, the cost of living is so damn high, and the odds of paying back the student loans are slim, this school apparently needs to make up for lost income. If you are still considering law school, moron, do not even contemplate this trash heap. You do not need to become financially ruined, in order to help keep this turd afloat.

Desperate Bowel Movement: Indiana Tech Law School Pigs Set to Reapply to ABA Cockroaches for Accreditation
TTTTT News: On July 16, 2015, KPC News published a Linda Lipp story entitled “Law school skips appeal, reapplies to ABA.” Take a look at this opening:
“The Indiana Tech Law School did not appeal a June decision by the American Bar Association’s Council on Legal Education denying it accreditation — but only because the university’s leaders decided reapplying for the ABA’s endorsement would be the quicker, more effective approach.
The appeals panel is required to affirm the council’s determination unless it thinks that it was arbitrary and capricious, said Charles Cercone, the law school’s dean. The school would not have been allowed to submit any additional evidence or documentation in its appeal, so the likelihood it would win was small.
“If we had appealed it would have delayed our reapplication process into next year to the point where we would have felt uncomfortable with our charter class that’s going to graduate (in 2016),” Cercone said. “So we decided to abandon the appeal and reapply right away.”
The accreditation is important, because in Indiana, students must graduate from an accredited law school in order to sit for the bar exam.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, these bastards are truly looking out for their students’ best interests, right?!?! If you believe that, then let me tell you about the time I threw a no hitter at the old Yankee Stadium. Later on, the author continued:
“The ABA had no problems with the school’s faculty or teaching, and did not cite the school’s lack of a permanent dean at the time of its evaluation as a problem, “although to be honest I don’t think it helped us much,” Cercone said.
The founding dean, Peter Alexander, left abruptly at the end of the law school’s first academic year in 2014. An interim dean served in that position until Cercone came on board in January.
The school’s enrollment the first two years did not live up to expectations. It had hoped for 100 the first year, and enrolled 25. The second year was a little better, but the school ended the year with just 57 first- and second-year students.
Because of the uncertainty over the accreditation status, some of those students may well transfer elsewhere, Cercone acknowledged. It also has put a damper on recruitment.
“Obviously, in the posture we’re in this year, I don’t expect that to improve,” he said. “We would like to have 20 students in the incoming class, and that’s what we’re shooting for.”
As an added enticement, the university is giving 100-percent scholarships to every single student enrolled there next year.
“It shows the university’s and the board of trustees’ support for the law school and their belief in the law school, and we hope that’s going to incentivize students to stay,” Cercone said.” [Emphasis mine]
You can smell the combination of desperation and sick feces from a mile away, people. The bitches and hags at this trash heap are now aiming to enroll 20 damn people in their incoming first year class – and they will provide them with free tuition! That must be a sign of strength, huh?!?!
Other Coverage: On the evening of July 22, 2015, the Law School Truth Center featured an entry labeled “An Intimate, Low Cost Law School Experience.” Check out the hilarious portion below:
“Imagine you go to law school at a "top" school. In your 1L torts law class, you might have 60, 80, 100 students. There's no way all of you can fit your tongues onto the professors' asses.
Now imagine a law school where you go to that same property class and it's just 19 other people. Not just in your section, but in the entire class. You'd get the exact same hands-on attention you got in high school geometry! If you went to a podunk high school in western Nebraska! Justice!
Ladies and gentlemen, I present Indiana Tech[.]” [Emphasis mine]
You have seen MANY law grads and attorneys advise current dolts to drop out immediately, if they are not in the top 10 percent of their commode’s class – after first semester. In a cohort of 20 morons, you would need to place in the top 2 spots. Guess what, genius? Even if you managed to be in the top “decile” at this toilet, decent law offices will not take a look at you. Hell, good law firms and government agencies would rather hire the bum carrying a cardboard sign than make your ass an offer. Get the point, mental deficient?!?!
Conclusion: If you know anyone who is getting ready to attend this dung heap, gently move their coloring book and Legos out of the way – and then talk to them in terms that they can understand. Use small words and short sentences. Whatever you do, make sure to avoid polysyllabic terms. You may need to draw them a diagram on the sidewalk, with chalk. If it will help them comprehend the message that you are trying to convey, then let them hold their Etch A Sketch. Clearly explain to them that attending Indiana TTTTTech Law Sewer is a dumber decision than sticking their arm in a jar filled with fire ants. In the event that they understand you and don’t throw a tantrum, reward them with a sticker of their favorite Sesame Street character and perhaps a glass of warm milk. By seeking to spare the simpletons from financial hell, you will be performing a great work and service.

Hello Imbecile. Despite the overwhelming mountain of hard evidence showing that: (a) the legal “profession” is GLUTTED; and (b) that law school is a terrible bet for the vast majority of students, you have decided to take the plunge anyway. Yeah, you’re a real bright bastard. After all, these facts do not apply to you, because even though you are enrolling in a third tier commode, YOU are still somehow exceptional, correct?!?!
Quick Breakdown: On July 15, 2015, ATL posted a Shannon Achimalbe piece labeled “4 Types Of People Who Shouldn’t Go To Law School.” Take a look at this opening:
“It is now mid-July and pre-law students are contemplating which law school to attend or whether to attend law school at all. Some have contacted me asking for advice. In the past, I was cynical and in most cases told them not to go without hearing them out. But now I try to be empathetic, listen to their stories, and discuss the pros and cons of attending the schools that accepted them. In most cases, I still tell them not to go unless they get a large, unconditional tuition discount for all three years.
Today, I want to write about certain pre-law students who should think long and hard before going to law school. Unfortunately, they have made up their minds and it will be difficult, if not impossible, to convince them to reconsider. I don’t think they will be bad lawyers or have a difficult life after graduation. But I do think they are going for questionable reasons. Alternatively, they can accomplish their personal goals without an expensive law degree.” [Emphasis mine]
The author then provided a brief description of these fools and morons, which I have trimmed further:
”1. The Activist. Activists want to be lawyers because they want to change the system. Most become Activists because they or someone close to them got screwed over by the judicial system or the police.
2. The Determined. These people have made their decision go to a non-elite law school and no one will stop them. They refuse to acknowledge that law school is no longer the career safe haven it used to be. Or they are aware of the risks but decide to go anyway. They get defensive and sometimes hostile whenever someone questions their decision.
3. The Disgraced. These people have second thoughts about going to law school but need a dignified reason not to go in order to avoid disgrace. Some just want to avoid a personal feeling of failure. But others also face real-world consequences if they back down. Their parents will cut them off financially or even disown them. Their significant other might reconsider their relationship. Or their social and professional circle will look down on them.
4. The Faithful. These people are also determined to go to law school but only because they feel that it is their spiritual duty. Like the Activists, they sincerely want to help and educate others. Most of them studied religion and the law either in school or informally. They go to worship services regularly and are morally good people.” [Emphasis mine]
Do you recognize yourself in any of those categories, waterhead?!?! If you want to help others or “change the system,” then you are already fighting a losing cause. There’s no sense in becoming FINANCIALLY RUINED, in the pursuit of such idealistic goals. Go serve food to bums in soup kitchens on the weekends, Dumbass.
Average Law School Indebtedness: According to a garbage publication known as US “News” & World Report, here are the schools with the highest average law school indebtedness, for those members of the JD class of 2014 who incurred debt for law school. Keep in mind that these figures do not take interest that accrues while the student is enrolled into account. By the way, of the top 15 offenders, only Northwestern, Columbia, and Georgetown are rated in the first tier. This means that they at least place many JDs in Biglaw positions.
A Brave New World: Back on June 19, 2012, the Atlantic featured a Jordan Weissman piece entitled “iLawyer: What Happens When Computers Replace Attorneys?” Check out the following portion:
“In the end, after you've stripped away their six-figure degrees, their state bar memberships, and their proclivity for capitalizing Odd Words, lawyers are just another breed of knowledge worker. They're paid to research, analyze, write, and argue -- not unlike an academic, a journalist, or an accountant. So when software comes along that's smarter or more efficient at those tasks than a human with a JD, it spells trouble.
That's one of the issues the Wall Street Journal raised yesterday in an article on the ways computer algorithms are slowly replacing human eyes when it comes to handling certain pieces of large, high-stakes litigation. It focuses on a topic that is near and dear to the legal industry (and pretty much nobody else) known as discovery, which is the process where attorneys sort through troves of documents to find pieces of evidence that might be related to a lawsuit. While it might seem like a niche topic, what's going on in the field has big implications for anybody who earns their living dealing with information.” [Emphasis mine]
The article then mentions predictive coding, and notes that court$ now support the use of such software. Still want to incur an ass-load of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a chance to practice in a GLUTTED “profession”?!?!
Conclusion: If you choose to enroll in a non-elite law school today, and you end up FINANCIALLY RAPED, then you have no one to blame but yourself. Sure, the law schools are run by selfish pigs who don’t give a damn about their students. However, you cannot expect the cockroaches to turn away willing victims either. Simpletons such as yourself are keeping these bitches and hags in business. If you want to pursue a stupid dream, then try out for American Idol, idiot.

Brooklyn Law School Crooks Offer to Repay 15 Percent of Their Loot: Generosity/Desperation in Action
TT Smells of Desperation: On July 12, 2015, the New York Times published an Ileana Navarro piece entitled “Brooklyn Law School Offers a Safety Net for New Students.” Take a look at this opening:
“Shelley Friedman, 21, who recently started a two-year program at Brooklyn Law School, is not too concerned about how she will fare in the job market after she earns her degree — and not just because she won’t begin looking for work until she approaches graduation in May 2017. She is simply confident about her prospects.
But she also knows that — just in case — the school is prepared to provide her with a safety net of sorts.
Beginning with students entering this year — whether in two-, three- or four-year programs — Brooklyn Law School is offering to repay 15 percent of total tuition costs to those who have not found full-time jobs nine months after graduating. That, according to school officials, is how long it typically takes graduates to get such jobs and, if necessary, to obtain the requisite licenses.
“Knowing you have a little extra security is very comforting and helpful,” said Ms. Friedman, who is from Fair Lawn, N.J.
The introduction of the program, called Bridge to Success, comes as law school graduates across the country face increasing competition in a depressed job market that is only slowly recovering from the economic downturn.
“This builds on the overall approach that we’ve taken to be very student-centric, to listen to what students need,” said Nicholas W. Allard, dean of Brooklyn Law School. He said it was the school’s strong financial standing, including an endowment of $133 million as of May, that made the program possible.” [Emphasis mine]
This trash pit is offering two year law degrees, and now the pigs are offering to repay 15% of out of pocket, total tuition costs to those who have not found full-time employment within nine months of earning their Crooklyn diplomas. Notice how the bastards did not specify the type of jobs. Apparently, if you graduate from this certified dung heap, and land a full-time position at Allstate or as a car salesman within nine months of receiving your degree, then you do not qualify for partial repayment.
The TT AnnouncemenTT: On July 13, 2015, the Crooklyn cockroaches issued a press release labeled “Brooklyn Law Announces ‘Bridge to Success’ Program.” In the sewer rats’ own words:
“Brooklyn Law School (BLS) today announced the launch of Bridge to Success, a new program designed to support graduates who may take longer in their job search to find meaningful, full-time employment. Under the program, if graduates have not found jobs of their choice nine months after graduation, they will receive a lump sum payment of 15 percent of their total tuition costs paid while attending BLS. The program takes effect beginning with the entering class of 2015.
Bridge to Success builds on Brooklyn Law School's nationally recognized career preparation and job placement success and is a further enhancement to the school’s comprehensive plan to support graduates as they begin their careers. Bridge to Success serves as both a boost while graduates conduct their job search and as a safety net if the process takes longer than anticipated.
“Our students invest a lot of time, effort and money earning their law degrees; some students need more time and support than others to find that all-important first job to start a worthwhile career,” said Nicholas W. Allard, president and dean of Brooklyn Law School. “Bridge to Success is designed to ease the pressure for some students to settle for any job to pay for living expenses and pay off loans. We are determined to provide the counseling and financial support needed in some cases, to buy extra time, in order to land the job that fits a graduate’s talent and passion.” [Emphasis mine]
Whenever you hear an administrator or “law professor” talk about “passion,” you KNOW that their school is a trash heap. Save that sentiment or excitement for the bedroom. The legal "profession" is a garbage business, not a romantic notion of how things should be done.
Other Coverage: JDU user “napoleone” posted a comical thread, which was titled “Brooklyn Law will get you a job, or give you a partial refund!” – on July 12, 2015 at 10:19 pm. Accountholder “ibrslave” provided this brilliant response 39 minutes later:
“Ha, ha! A 15% refund is like pissing on a forest fire. Brooklyn can shamelessly look like they give a damn and keep 85% of the ungodly tuition from those suckers who cannot find a job 9 months after graduation. These graduates are doomed, period, with or without a token 15% refund.”
This is merely a PR move, designed to attract more lemmings – and to make outsiders believe that this as a benevolent institution. Would you celebrate a mugger as a hero, if he stole your car, watch, wallet or other property – and then later gave you 15% of what he took from you?!?! If not, then don’t treat the swine at Crooklyn Law any differently.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, Brooklyn Law Sewer is desperate for asses in seats. The place is a notorious, noxious stink pit that burns your nostrils from a distance. It is currently ranked as the co-78th greatest, most phenomenal and amazing law school in the entire damn country – by US “News” & World Report. Yet, the pigs will charge full-time law students $45,780 in tuition – for the 2015-2016 academic year.
According to the same publication, the average law student indebtedness for those members of the Crooklyn Law Class of 2014 who incurred debt for law school was $114,953. Since a good portion of that amount is due to living expenses, the commode will not repay 15 percent of the total figure. If you received a partial scholarship/tuition discount, the jackals will only pay back a fraction of the tuition costs to you. In other words, you will still be in financial hell. Does that strike you as a good deal, Dumbass?!?!

Thorough Wipe Job: On July 1, 2015, Joe Patrice posted an ATL entry labeled “Bloomberg’s The 10 Most Underrated Law Schools Is A Terribly Stupid List.” Look at this opening:
“There are a lot of factors that can make for an underrated movie. Perhaps the acting transcends a woefully subpar script. Or maybe the dialogue hangs in your memory long after the plot itself falls forgotten. Or maybe you’ve found a symbolic meaning to Deuce Bigalow that no one considered before. But there’s one feature that all underrated movies share:
They’re actually bad.
There may be a redeeming quality or two, but fundamentally, the film never caught fire for a reason and your effort to resuscitate some personal favorite to respectability to save your own reputation with your friends is just pathetic. Stop trying to make Gigli happen. It’s not going to happen.
This goes double for Bloomberg Business’s sad “The 10 Most Underrated Law Schools” post. Just try to get through this paragraph with a straight face:
There is a strong chance you have never heard of the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University. The Raleigh, N.C., school is not prestigious enough to be ranked among U.S. News and World Report’s best law schools, and it enrolls only about 400 students at a time. Yet a new law school ranking suggests that most of us are probably underestimating Campbell.
Nope. We’re not. According to Law School Transparency, Campbell earned an employment score of 57.8 percent and an underemployment score of 20.8 percent. This makes it superior to, say, Florida Coastal, but that’s not exactly high praise.” [Emphasis mine]
Considering that a litter box full of moist cat turds is superior to Florida Coa$TTTTal Sewer of Law, that is not high praise. When I profiled the stench pit known as the Norman Adrian Wiggins Sewer of Law, many people thought that I was joking. Believe it or not, it’s an actual law school – with ABA accreditation and everything, including presumably a fax machine!
The Piece in Question: On June 30, 2015, BloombergBusiness published a piece, from the usually reliable Natalie Kitroeff, which was entitled “The 10 Most Underrated Law Schools.” Apparently, the publication must also provide articles that are pro-law school pig. Look at the rubbish below:
“Alfred Brophy, a law professor at the University of North Carolina, published a paper online on Sunday that grades law schools on just three measures of success. Brophy’s [simpleminded] accounting looks at students’ employment outcomes, their median scores on the Law School Admission Test, and the number of citations that a school’s law review receives. By distilling the rankings down to these metrics, Brophy says he can get at the essence of a law school’s worth: how well it prepares its students for the profession they have chosen.
“What this ranking does is reveal how careful students need to be, especially in looking at employment outcomes,” says Brophy. “The job market is so incredibly competitive coming out of law school, you want to make sure you are going to the best school and getting the best value for your money.” [Emphasis mine]
Attending a third tier commode or fourth tier trash can WILL NOT benefit the vast majority of students, either personally or professionally. That is an undisputed fact! Incurring an additional $120K+ in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt in the process will not increase your career options. It will, however, significantly improve your chances of becoming a broke bastard who struggles to pay his bills and provide for himself or support a family.
Deliberately Comical Coverage: On July 2, 2015, the Law School Truth Center posted an entry labeled “Underrated Law Schools: As Sexy as a Nissan Sentry.” Unlike the Kitroeff piece, it was intentionally funny. Check out the following excerpt:
“You'll have to go to the link to see the full list, but let me just say that any law school ranking that includes Albany is a good ranking in my book.
What’s more, Brophy found that in the middle of the pool—schools ranked from 15 to 150 on his list—there wasn’t very much variation in performance.
“The difference between a Toyota Corolla and a Nissan Sentra isn’t that great. That’s the analogy I would make,” says Brophy.”
You too can wipe your ass with a law degree from any of the 10 toilets mentioned in the Brophy or Bloomberg piece. After earning a JD from those in$TTTiTTTuTTTion$, that’s all it will be good for, mental midget.
Conclusion: If you apply to, or enroll in, ANY of the 10 trash pits listed as “underrated,” then you are a moron. In fact, if you even consider Campbell ‘University,’ Drexel, University of Montana, Mercer University, University of South Dakota, Albany Law Sewer, University of Idaho, Louisiana State University, Northern Illinois University, or Villanova, then you are making a statement as to how DESPERATE you are to be called a lawyer. You are the type of sucker who would go out with an ugly butter cow, for the sake of dating someone and not being alone. Grow a brain stem, you dupe.

Bloomberg’s Analysis: On July 1, 2015, BloombergBusiness published a Natalie Kitroeff piece, which was entitled “Is It Time to Start Shutting Down Law Schools?” Read the entire article, but first check out this opening:
“This month, the American Bar Association provisionally accredited a new law school at Concordia University. More than 200 law schools are accredited in the U.S. An analysis of data from the ABA itself raises the question whether that list should be getting any longer.
Law schools exist for a lot of reasons, but a pretty important one is to prepare people to be lawyers. By that standard, a large handful of institutions seem to be failing. Last year, 10 law schools were unable to place more than 30 percent of their graduating class in permanent jobs that required passing the bar, according to ABA data. Those job numbers don't include positions that schools fund for their graduates or people who say they are starting their own practice.
At the University of Massachusetts School of Law, the American school with the worst job outcomes by this measure, just 22 percent of people who graduated in 2014 got those types of law jobs.
“We are a work in progress, and we need to improve our bar-pass rate and improve our employment, and I am not embarrassed about that,” says Mary Lu Bilek, the dean of U-Mass Law. Forty-two of the 60 U-Mass Law students who took the bar in February or July 2013 passed the test. The school counted 81 graduates in 2014. [Pig] Bilek notes that the school's employment numbers have improved in recent years and says she doesn’t think it’s fair to discount people who have opted to do things with their J.D. besides become lawyers.
“The traditional elite jobs aren’t the jobs that our students generally want,” she says. “There’s not room for another law school that wants to have students who want to do that, because there aren’t enough jobs for that.” [Emphasis mine]
As you can see from Bilak’s comments above, these cockroach deans and “professors” DO NOT GIVE ONE GODDAMN about their students or graduates. You are a mere mean$ to an end, mental midget. The swine have no shame and not one ounce of integrity. Plus, nothing is beneath them. Hell, the Univer$iTTTTTy of Ma$$achu$eTTTTTs Sewer of Law “placed” 22% of its grads – from the Class of 2014 – in jobs where bar passage is required – and the bitch still is not embarrassed.
The author then continued:
“Years of a disappointing job market for lawyers have dramatically reduced the number of people interested in getting a law degree. According to the Law School Admission Council, just under 53,000 people are expected to apply to law schools by the beginning of the 2015 academic year, down from more than 100,000 in 2004.
Instead of making more things that fewer and fewer people want to pay for, one thought would be to eliminate some of those things. Are there law schools that should disappear? “Maybe. But how is that going to happen?" asks Al Brophy, a law professor at UNC. "Will it happen because places say voluntarily, ‘hey, we aren’t making money, so we should shut down?’”
Schools will not volunteer for their own demise, Brophy says, partly because so many people—alumni, faculty, staff—have a strong interest in keeping the end at bay. “It is going to take a lot to have schools shut down. What I think we are going to find is that they are going to be able to operate on shoestring budgets.” [Emphasis mine]
Brophy correctly points out that his fellow academic con artists will not voluntarily leave the scam – especially since it continues to be so profitable. However, in order to reach “shoestring budget” levels, MANY staff and even some faculty will first need to be flushed down the toilet.
Other Coverage: On July 1, 2015, JDU poster “sjlawyer” posted a thread simply labeled “Is It Time to Start Shutting Down Law Schools?” Yes, he merely copied the headline from Bloomberg. Anyway, check out his first comment:
“The traditional elite jobs aren’t the jobs that our students generally want,” [Mary Lu Bilek, the dean of U-Mass Law] says. “There’s not room for another law school that wants to have students who want to do that, because there aren’t enough jobs for that.”
Don't want or can't get? And are there enough jobs for students who want any type of legal career?” [Emphasis mine]
This gets right to the point. Biglaw is NOT AN OPTION for students who graduate from schools such as the Univer$iTTTTTy of Ma$$achu$$eTTTTTs, in the same way that a backup point guard at Oklahoma City Community College has no shot in hell at playing in the NBA. Federal employment is also out of reach for these fools.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, the American Bar Association cockroaches have accredited FAR TOO MANY trash pits. There are now over 200 ABA-approved schools in operation. As fewer people apply to law school, the acceptance rates continue to increase. Still, there are too damn many graduates for the available number of attorney openings each year. Of course, the “professors” and administrators could care less. After all, they got overpaid – via the federal student loan $y$tem – up front, in full. YOU, the student and graduate, are the one stuck with a huge load of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt.
Then again, the information on the law school scam is extensive – and it has been easily available for years, to anyone with an internet connection. If you are still applying to these filthy cesspools and sickening commodes, then you deserve your fate. By the way, if waterheads were not still enrolling in these laughingstock law schools, several of them would have already been demolished. Thanks for keeping the thieves in business, Dumbass.

Provisionally-Accredited Trash Pit Concordia University School of Law Set to Ramp Up Recruitment Efforts
TTTTT News: On June 23, the Idaho Statesman published a Bill Roberts piece, which was entitled “Concordia law school launches media campaign to attract students, inform community.” Take a look at this opening:
“Boise’s Concordia University School of Law is raising its profile just weeks after the American Bar Association gave it provisional approval, which means graduates are eligible to take the bar exam.
Over the next couple of months, Concordia law, which has about 100 students, will use social media, newspapers, billboards and local radio stations to encourage students to enroll and to better acquaint itself with the community.
“We wanted to make sure we reached all the key stakeholder groups,” said Madeline Turnock, a spokeswoman for Concordia University, based in Portland.” [Emphasis mine]
If you want to reach the full extent of your potential applicant pool, make sure to post billboards in the following locations: homeless shelters, soup kitchens, Wal-Mart, Burger King, welfare offices, etc. You should also smear your advertising feces all over park benches and buses throughout the area. After all, your graduates will end up riding the damn bus or sleeping in the park – after you’ve financially raped them in the ass. Later on, the author continued:
“A new billboard along Interstate 84 near the Orchard Street exit encourages students to apply.
Concordia has room to grow, said Turnock, but school officials say they don’t have a specific enrollment number in mind. Concordia’s law school can take 75 students in each of its three grade levels.
Concordia says it is looking carefully at the quality of its students, since passage of the bar exam is regarded as one indicator of the school’s quality.
The media campaign will continue until August, when approximately 17 students are expected to graduate, Concordia officials say.” [Emphasis mine]
Wow! This commode will have a total of 17 graduates in its first year class. What a terrific accomplishment, huh?!?! Hell, if a 6’8” transvestite was offering its services for free, there were be more than 17 people huddled around.
Other Coverage: On June 24, 2015, Noelle Price posted a JD Journal entry labeled “Concordia Law School Working to Attract Students.” Read the following excerpt:
“The school opened its doors in 2012. In August of 2014, it began the process of seeking accreditation from the American Bar Association. The ABA, however, delayed rendering a decision at that time, and sent a team of professionals to the school to gather additional information. Earlier this month, it received provisional accreditation. The National Law Journal adds that the school will be eligible for full accreditation in 2017.
However, due to the delay in provisional accreditation, 55 second- and third-year law students transferred to the University of Idaho’s law school so that they were eligible to sit for the bar exam. According to Boise Weekly, the Idaho Supreme Court refused to give the school a waiver that would allow third-year students to take the exam.” [Emphasis mine]
Maybe by 2017, the pigs will have a graduating class with more than 30 members. In that case, you can bet your ass that the American Bar Association cockroaches will grant full accreditation to this pile of moist excrement. The fact that that the University of Idaho Commode of Law accepted 55 of these dolts speaks volumes about that school.
Tuition: Full-time students/victims will be charged $28,500 in tuition, for the 2015-2016 academic year. In the pigs’ own words:
“Tuition 2015 - 2016
After careful research, analysis, and budgeting, Concordia University set the tuition rate at $950 per credit hour.
This rate results in a full-time (30 credits per year) tuition cost of $28,500, an annual cost that is more than $10,000 below the annual price point of the average private, nonprofit law school.
In addition, students who enroll for the fall 2015 incoming class will receive a Transformation Through Service Grant of $15,000 ($5,000 per year for full-time students and $3,750 per year for part-time students). Students may also be eligible for additional scholarships.” [Emphasis mine]
Yeah, who wouldn’t want to shell out $28,500 per year – even if offset by a partial tuition reduction, i.e. “scholarship” – to attend an unproven, barely-accredited dung heap?!?! This is the equivalent of purchasing a broken down 1991 Ford Tempo for $20K.
Conclusion: If you are even considering attending a provisionally-accredited stink pit – such as Concordia “University” Sewer of Law – then you are an ideal candidate for a brain shunt. In fact, such morons should not permitted to order their own meals off the McDonald’s menu, since they don’t have the mental capacity to make these types of big decisions.
Does anyone else think that this cesspool should post fliers in convenience store and truck stop bathroom stalls, advertising its “legal education” program? Hell, they might be able to get a few dumbass truck drivers to take the bait. Certainly, some meth addicts will jump at the chance to become lawyers, right?!?! Just post some Concordia Law magnets next to the condom dispensers or right above the rolls of toilet paper.
