ABA Cockroaches Now Recommend Provisional Accreditation for Indiana Tech Law Sewer

Par for the Course: On January 26, 2016, the Indiana Lawyer published a Marilyn Odendahl piece, that was entitled “ABA committee recommends Indiana Tech Law School for accreditation.” Read the portion below:

“Indiana Tech Law School’s application for provisional accreditation has received support within the American Bar Association. 

The Accreditation Committee of the ABA’s Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar recommended Jan. 21 that Indiana Tech’s application be approved. The Fort Wayne law school must now get final approval from the Section’s Council.

Indiana Tech Law School will make its presentation during the council’s scheduled meeting March 11 and 12 in Phoenix, Arizona. 

“While I am grateful for the committee’s work and their recommendation, I recognize and respect the Council’s role in this process and look forward to appearing before the Council in March,” Indiana Tech Law School Dean Charles Cercone said in a statement. 

In 2015, the ABA denied Indiana Tech’s application. According to Cercone, the bar association was concerned that the law school had not fully developed its curriculum.” [Emphasis mine]

For $ome rea$on, the ABA swine like to hold their idiotic meetings in warm weather locales – especially when cold temperatures persist in much of the country. Evidently, this helps stimulate “productivity.”

Other Coverage: On January 26, 2016, the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel featured a story from Kevin Leininger, with the headline “Indiana Tech’s law school recommended for accreditation.” Look at the concluding paragraph:

“Law schools cannot seek accreditation until their second year of operation, and failure to receive accreditation in the first attempt is not considered uncommon. Accreditation is important, because some states, including Indiana, do not allow students from non-accredited schools to take the bar examination necessary to practice law.” [Emphasis mine]

Even cub reporters can see through the ABA’s tactics. Deny in year one, approve next time.

Only 15 Students Accepted Free Tuition Offer: Back on September 1, 2015, “Old Guy” posted an OTLSS entry that was labeled “Indiana Tech can’t be given away.” Check out the following portion from that article:

“Desperate times call for desperate measures. And the raffling off of a "scholarship" to someone who had not even applied was not nearly desperate enough. With a new scam-dean to open year 3, Indiana Tech proved its vaunted innovative spirit by eliminating tuition. Yes, this year anyone enterprising enough to attend Indiana Tech won't spend a sou for the intellectual fellowship of such godlike figures as Dougie Fresh and Lamparello! 

Indiana Tech was hoping to draw in twenty first-year students this year. How many people actually enrolled? 

Fifteen.” [Emphasis mine]

Yes, that is the definition of “success,” right?!?! Hell, that is the equivalent of a woman telling you that she will sleep with you for free – and you still turn her down flat. Then again, Indiana TTTTTech Law Sewer is one unattractive pig.

Spot On Analysis: The Law School Truth Center featured an epic entry, “ABA Answers Long-Debated Question, Would Accredit a Turkey Sandwich,” on February 4, 2016. Do not drink or eat anything while reading this description:

“For any accreditation body that had a modicum of standards, accrediting this dead turkey would seem like a long-shot. Thankfully, the ABA understands the need to be inclusive in a field rife with elitism, such as the idea that a law school should be functional and seriously benefit students. 

To use a metaphor, the confident young woman of pious virtue would simply scoff at the greasy drunken slob at the end of the bar who just suggested spontaneous bathroom coitus. There's a minimum bar to even having the negotiation, and that disgusting and hairy dude's not even close. 

But the ABA is not a confident young woman of stuck-up pious virtue who sets arbitrary bars of availability based on traditional heuristics like attractiveness or health. No - the ABA is the kind-hearted, yet tough as nails, sex-addicted slut, who sees disgusting Indiana Tech feebly sitting in that port-side attraction, lonely day after lonely day, showering himself only with slurred philosophy and brushing his teeth only with suds. The ABA's one of the sporty gals who welcomes every able-bodied seaman into Manilla or Havana. With a wink and some routine procedure, she inducts them into that fraternity of one-time sailors who've spent a shore leave in that comforting port-of-call. To that honeyed whore, the ABA, the thought of revolting Indiana Tech isn't so much a turn-off as it is an opportunity. Indeed, this young sailor is special; he might grow into a strong and vibrant man of the community, enrolling hundreds of students and being a beacon of light to all who could see. Indeed, it would be undue discrimination for her, the ABA, to deny the application. But more importantly, it's just what the ABA does. Some women make careers; some women make house; the ABA is the seasoned whore who sees nobility and prestige in fornicating with a cross around her neck.” [Emphasis mine]

This describes the ABA’s role perfectly! Frankly, meth whores who walk by with twitching limbs have higher standards than these rodents.

Conclusion: This is a pattern by the American Bar Association criminals. They are known to deny accreditation to true cesspits on the first application, only to rubber stamp it the second time. These people are about as predictable as a prostitute presented with a few hundred dollars in cash. In the end, they will cave in and fall to their knees. It’s what the bitches and hags at the ABA do best.


  1. The ABA is a joke. Apparently the governing body cannot stand up to its section on legal education, which is itself dominated by self perpetuating bottom-feeder law school deans. The United States Department of Justice needs to again investigate the ABA. In1995, DOJ filed a civil anti-trust complaint against the ABA charging that “legal educators had captured the ABA law school accreditation process”. [For details see Law professor Brian Tamanaha’s excellent book—Failing Law Schools]. Unfortunately the terms of a consent decree expired in 2005. The ABA is now allowing the profession to commit slow suicide in order to temporarily employ and appease Third and Fourth tier toilet deans and faculty.

    This is one issue in which Congress and the Administration should by-pass the ABA, which has no interest in self-regulation, and get together and pass new regulations to limit the dissemination of Federal Student loan $$. Bottom line, make attainment of a 160 LSAT score the minimum standard for receipt of Federal loan $$. That would force about 60% of law schools to shut down, and gradually bring supply of attorneys in line with demand.

    There is little demand in the current market place for routine functions that were formerly performed by stupid monkeys, like doc review, and small business incorporations etc.—all of which has being taken over by Legal Zoom. Who needs an attorney to draft a will anymore? Unless the client’s estate exceeds the Federal estate tax threshold of 12MM, any reasonably self-aware and capable person can draft their own through Legal Zoom. Those really high net worth folks who do need to worry about Fed estate taxes will be going to a Harvard educated Sullivan and Cromwell attorney, not some bottom feeder solo or small firm.

    Limiting Federal loan $$ is the only way to choke the beast.

    1. Legal "educators" have indeed captured the ABA's accreditation process. See this article:

      About ten years ago, the legal profession in England and Wales lost the power to regulate itself, because it was plainly incapable of doing so. The ABA too should be stripped of its powers. "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" applies in spades to the law-skule racket.

  2. Incredible that the ABA is accrediting new law schools at a time when the job market for lawyers is so weak and hundreds of thousands of lawyers are underemployed or unemployed. The average income of solos has dropped to $40,000 from over $70,000 a decade before. There is an oversupply of more than half a million lawyers over the 770,000 legal jobs available in the US. Twice as many bodies as there are legal jobs are still graduating from law school each year.

    Legal jobs have been stagnant for at least a decade. BLS has told us there are 15,700 jobs available a year in the next ten years as compared with 33,000 law students graduating this year and classes of 45,000 or more in recent years.

    The ABA is completely irresponsible. They are not acting in the interest of the public, taxpayers, who are on the hook for expensive law schools loans which will not be repaid or the lawyers who will attend Indiana Tech.

    An outside body without self interested members- not composed of persons employed by law schools - needs to be appointed.

    If there is any question as to whether the ABA is permitted to limit accreditations and law school enrollments due to the old Justice Department antitrust opinion letter, the ABA should ask for that letter to be revisited in light of today's lawyer glut and numerous other legal standards, which require an accreditor to take into account outcomes of graduates. It cannot be that every school or law schools in particular cannot limit their enrollment to take into account the numbers of jobs. That interpretation makes no sense and has to be a loser if the Justice Department were to pursue it in just about any federal court.

  3. Awww, and here I was hoping that the Indiana Tech law school would be denied yet again, and then maybe, just MAYBE, it would finally close.
    (If this gets approved and ITLS really does become accredited, does this mean that ANY law school which opens up will eventually get accredited? Heck, maybe I should open my own law school then, knowing that it just might never close down...)

    1. Your law school would have to buy printed copies of the goddamn statutes of every state from Rhode Island to Wyoming. There are other requirements of that nature. If you have the money to jump through those hoops, however, you should be able to achieve accreditation as easily as Indiana Dreck.

    2. Forgotten Attorney's seemingly satirical idea about the $100,000 per year law school comes to mind...

      Although, in all seriousness, I have played around with this idea in my head for opening a serious law school, one which DOES actually teach its students to be lawyers and NOT screw them over. Let's call it the "Brutally Honest School of Law" (working name).

      At BHSL, tuition would be some mortgage-sized monster. No sir, the students would pay just enough to give the working staff a living wage (hey, they gotta eat too) and keep the place running. But the most important thing would be that they ACTUALLY TEACH THE STUDENTS HOW TO BE LAWYERS. (And this would actually include stuff like trips to the courtroom or learning how to draft memos and all that other stuff.)

      And this would include being brutally honest with the students about just how wretched being a lawyer is these days. Maybe I would bring in "survivors" from all over the place: BigLaw, Sh**Law, starving solos, pro bono lackeys, document review slaves, etc. Let them tell the students just how bad it is. They wouldn't necessarily discourage the students from being lawyers, but it would give the students a brutally honest view of the "profession" and let them make an informed choice of whether they want to pursue it or not.

      And of course these teachers would actually look out for their students. For example, there could be regular seminars on how to maintain your health and happiness as a lawyer, and how to avoid obesity, depression, alcoholism, suicide, and all that other fun stuff. Maybe there would also be workshops for how to adjust your resume to leave off the JD when applying to non-law jobs.

      But of course this idea wouldn't work, because then who would want to be a lawyer? :P
      (Then again, who knows, maybe some people would actually want to attend this school, if only for the relatively low cost of tuition.)

  4. By denying accreditation the first time only to get out the rubber stamp a few months later, the ABA gets to pose as maintaining standards. In fact, the ABA would accredit Dougie Fresh's left buttock if "LAW SKULE" were tattoo'd on it. "PRE-APPROVED" in the picture at the top nicely summarizes the ABA's gambit.

    But accrediting more and more new toilets will only harm the more established ones. Were it not for Indiana Tech, maybe Cooley and Valpo would each have had a few more students this year.

  5. Nando, what is your email address? I have some information you will definitely find interesting but I don't know how to get it to you. Thanks.

  6. I'm thinking out loud now. Is it possible that Indiana Tech is an even bigger piece of shit than Touro? Or am I way off base here?

    1. Comparing the shittiness of toilet schools is a pointless exercise. Would you embrace Touro if I told you that it stank of shit slightly less than Indiana Tech?

    2. Old guy is right: A pile of shit is a pile of shit is a pile of shit. Distinguishing one pile of shit from another pile of shit is a waste of time.

    3. How many turds can dance on the front of a law skool diploma...?

    4. Well, 8:28-there is always the practical consideration whether to reach for Charmin or Bounty.

  7. Take a look at law school lemmings if you really want to give up hope. Someone was excited at being accepted at Capital-most recent stats 160 grads, with 45 unemployed not looking, 10 status unknown(we'll count them as unemployed too). So over one-third not employed, but lemmings still attending. Unbelievable.

    1. That's still better than the T3-T4 California schools, from which only a third of the graduates typically find paid FT legal employment.

  8. Janet Yellen says the economy is just about at full employment. Try being a lawyer from a T4 law school is involuntarily unemployed or underemployed. Try being in a profession where no decent law firm will hire you after age 45. Try being in a profession where even the in house jobs have experience limits. Try being in a profession where half of the open jobs are temp jobs and the other half require candidates to be a purple squirrel - with experience almost no one has required. Try being in a profession where jobs end simply because there are so many candidates for jobs to choose from. Try being in a profession with huge breaks in employment because there are so many lawyers out there.

    One can go on in this vein, but it is the ABA to thank for this mess.

    Half a million or more lawyers need job retraining -that is right, job retraining - to work in full time permanent jobs that require a college degree.

    We can thank the ABA for half a million unemployed and underemployed lawyers. Lawyers, or persons with law license are probably the most represented occupational group among the unemployed and underemployed.

    Get us retraining so we can work in full time permanent jobs that require a college degree.

    1. Hey! According to the government sponsored student loan department you are a "sophisticated" consumer, so you can do your own re-tooling. At least you had a good run and lots of shinny papers to decorate your wall; long enough to repay your loans and make mortgage and Obamacare payments I hope. And forget about learning Chinese, that is so last decade. You can always convert to Islam or have a sex-change operation, I hear that's all the rage right now.

  9. Try being a lawyer with a Harvard Law degree with honors and years at a major firm who cannot get a job when that firm pulls the plug. Years at a V10 law firm. Excellent general corporate experience. Federal clerkship in the most competitive district. Harvard, Yale or Princeton before that.

    No takers for any full-time permanent position.

    You can thank the ABA for keeping on accrediting law schools and not setting any limits on law school class sizes.

    After working at a V10 firm with excellent experience a lawyer needs retraining because there are not enough follow on jobs out there.

    Thank the ABA for hundreds of thousands of unemployed and underemployed law schools, including honor graduates of Harvard and Yale Law.

    1. Unlike some people here, I don't think that every ass-eyed moron coming out of Indiana Tech or Touro or Cardozo or USC deserves a job as a lawyer (at whatsoever salary). Most of those people have no business in the legal profession—which means that they have no business going to law school and therefore should not be admitted.

      I do, however, note with alarm that the top graduates of Harvard and Yale can have trouble finding work.

    2. Captain Hruska Carswell, Continuance KingFebruary 7, 2016 at 7:03 AM

      A just a few short years ago as a Solo from a T2 school, I had a "niche" practice representing DUI and Retail Theft mopes and appointed work. It was consistent at around 65-70K yearly. I was content and I never saw any Harvard or Yale guys. I didn't want to do that work. Today, I am lucky if I hit 35K and I see struggling guys from Harvard. A gub'mint job at 50K is the holy grail. The pie is not big enough. There are just hundreds of ranked schools. Until yesterday, I had never heard of Capital University Law School. What the hell is that?

    3. The goal of this blog can also be to get the message out that law school enrollment needs to be sharply reduced. With only 15,700 lawyer jobs a year predicted by BLS, the ABA is doing great harm by allowing 33,000 students a year to enroll in ABA accredited law schools.

      We are now at about 80 lawyer jobs being created per year per law school.

      To tout JD advantage for a real estate broker job that requires no degree, a compliance job or human resources job that requires a BA or even a tax job that one can get with a CPA that does not require an advanced degree beyond a BA is overkill. People are buried in debt they can likely never pay if they take these types of jobs after law school.

      The story of Jonathan Wang at Columbia, profiled in the NY Times, was heart-breaking.

      Many more lawyers end up like Jonathan Wang after the age of 45. Some of those lawyers went to a T3 or T4 or T8 law school.

      Law is an up or out system. That puts many more older lawyers out of work than young lawyers, and oversupply means there are not jobs for older lawyers to go to.

      Even the temp trend- of so many lawyer jobs being temporary - would not be alarming if a lawyer could go from job to job. That is not the case due to extreme lawyer oversupply. Lawyers suffer years of unemployment between temp jobs.

      We need to tell the ABA to limit lawyer production to a level that fits the demand - less than 20,000 law school slots a year and maybe 50 law schools, because you don't need more than 50 law schools to train Americans for 15,700 lawyer jobs a year.

      The ABA is doing great harm - creating an unsustainable job path for most - that is, hundreds of thousands - of law school graduates, after saddling them with debt.

      Most lawyers are falling into the category of unemployed and underemployed due to the ABA's antics. This is not a joke.

      The victims, who are college students and generally recent college grads, do not have the knowledge they need to make an informed decision about law school. The data on how high the level of unemployment and underemployment of lawyers is, even if you went to Harvard, is not as easy as it should be to find.

    4. I'm with Old Guy. No one deserves a legal job just for obtaining a costly law degree.

      Of course, that implies that no professor deserves a paycheck, no matter how many clerkships and publications they have. Let them get paid when and if their students find jobs.

      That's called justice!

    5. Problem is that if you have two top degrees, one undergrad - like Harvard, Yale, Princeton or Stanford-and T6 law degree and you got those degrees before the law school scam became known, being completely unemployed or underemployed for much of the second half of your career is really bad. These are people who could have done something else with their lives where they could work regularly. Right now, a lot of Harvard Law grads have careers like solo practitioner or guru of the LSAT, and these careers are not by choice.

    This accreditation is actually a positive for Indiana. I have traveled extensively around the State. It is a flat dystopian landscape filled with Walmarts, diabetes clinics, new jails, payday loan places, gun n pawn shops, used car lots (circa 90s-00's moth mobiles) and a STD outbreak after the governor forced the closure of one Planned Parenthood. Opening this law school is a breath of fresh intellectual air. It will add prestige to Indiana. Like adding a vinyl roof to a Hyundai Excel.

    1. You forgot to mention the HIV epidemic that broke out last fall among the needle sharing opioid addicted. Other than that omission, your description is basically spot on. Not that there is much demand for legal services outside of Indy anyway, but the market has been kept well oversupplied by mouth breathing morons from Valpo and Cooley for decades until these idiots came along.

      At least Indiana Tech is small enough (not by its choice) that the graduates it vomits forth won't materially affect an already bad situation. Take your victories where you can find them, right?

    2. An excellent (as well as accurate) description of the desolate nature of the Indiana landscape; spot on with the observations of beaucoup WalMarts and diabeetus shops dotting the plains. It is all too fitting that Indiana Tech be chosen to "service" the far-flung regions of this armpit of a State. The Oklahoma Panhandle is a wonder to behold compared to this horrific canker sore. And it is none other than Indiana Tech that will be the bastion of legal thought here!

    3. How ironic. I would view the OPENING of another Planned Parenthood as part of a "dystopian landscape." But I guess an 800 million pound ultracapitalist gorilla that sits on top of Congress and forcefucks the taxpayer (to the tune of billions of dollars) is as American as apple pie, right?

    4. Thank you to Captain Hruska Carswell (cool name, by the way!) for convincing me not to travel to Indiana anytime soon.

  11. So, the "fix is in?"

    (Was it ever out?)

  12. The ABA will accredit anyone with the money to pay for site visits and can show the basic trappings of a law school (like a huge library). It's pathetic.

  13. I have to wonder if the ABA will so much as reprimand a toilet law school for poor bar passage rates. I know that Thomas Jefferson is churning out some serious flunkies now. Touro's bar passage rate for the July 2015 New York bar exam was something like 52%. I can't see places like Florida Coastal or Charleston or Cooley faring any better. Put simply, these passage rates are flat out disgraceful.

    Shouldn't poor performing law schools be in jeopardy of losing their accreditation by now?

  14. this was totally expected. fuck the ABA. apparently the gravy train has not derailed yet, and they are fixing the brakes to prolong the journey.

  15. Captain Hruska Carswell, Continuance KingFebruary 7, 2016 at 3:00 PM

    When I was in college. I worked at a used car lot. GM made shit boxes like the Monza and the Sky Hawk with giant, gaudy decals and pin stripes. The actual cars and motors were unreliable crap. I asked the owner of the lot how he sold these things. He told me that was an easy sell to a teenaged kid or dumb twenty something who walked in here with a hard on. Get 'em in the car and they get a hard on. Same thing with Indiana Tech and the ABA....the committee does a walk through of the shiny new building and library....

    1. All these years later, I salute you, Capt Carswell. When I was in law school, I actually owned a Monza; what it lacked in speed and reliability, it made up with terrible gas mileage and a punishing ride. What a truly terrible car...but then again I was in law school, so my prospects were bleak anyway.

  16. There is no national or local need for a law school in Ft. Wayne. There is no cry from the masses for one there either, as ITSL's minuscule enrollment indicates, and those students are going for free. The school is "barely there".
    So with no reason for this school, why does the ABA want it provisionally accredited?
    I think Nando's graphic is spot-on! One day the marketers will be mass-mailing pre-approved law school offers just like they send pre-approved credit card offers now!

  17. "The Fort Wayne law school must now get final approval from the Section’s Council."

    When I read this, all I could think is that the process sounds like something out of Animal House. Indiana Tech needs to be put on double secret probation.

  18. Free tuition? Sounds sweet. With compromised admission standards, who needs AAMPLE!

  19. Law schools are scam.

    "When Americans invest their time, money and effort to gain new skills, they have a right to expect they'll actually get an education that leads to a better life for them and their families," said Acting Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. "Schools looking to cheat students and taxpayers will be held accountable."


    Back on November 11, 2013, John Dodig’s piece, “In an Era of Declining Law School Aspirations, Does ABA Accreditation Matter?,” appeared on Noodle. Take a look at this opening:

    “There are 206 law schools in the United States currently accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA); three are awaiting full approval from the organization, while a few dozen more aren’t seeking it.

    Historically, ABA-accredited law schools have been more competitive — in terms of admissions as well as outcomes — than their non-accredited counterparts. Given the recent decline in law school applications, however, some accredited schools are becoming less selective, a trend brought about by financial pressures and the need for more tuition dollars.

    According to a recent Law School Transparency report, a rapidly-increasing number of law schools are accepting students with LSAT scores that qualify them as candidates at high risk of not passing the bar exam. Of 203 accredited law schools, just nine had LSAT score averages (for the 50th percentile of admitted students) that placed them in the “serious risk category.” Now, 37 do. That’s a four-fold increase, and now about one-fifth of incoming accredited law school students are unlikely to pass the bar exam, or — despite their significant investments of time and money — ultimately practice law.

    That said, accreditation is one important indicator of a school’s history of success in graduating qualified future attorneys. Prospective law students often wonder about the differences between an ABA-approved law school and one that doesn’t have this certification — and whether they would be wasting their time and money if they were to attend a non-accredited school.”

    As you can see, the ABA cockroaches have lower “standards” than a strip club. I laughed when I read the line about how “only” nine ABA-accredited trash cans had LSAT averages that would put them in the serious risk category. By the way, Dodig is listed as an editor of this online source. Yet, he somehow confused median with average, regarding the LSAT. Anyway, it speaks volumes that this organization permits such dung heaps to operate – especially when these grads will incur outrageous sums of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, in the process.

  21. Congrats to Nando for hitting the 4,500,000 (4.5 MILLION) mark!

  22. So what if you take the bar more than once. Your best bet is to Double down on hard, effort and a Bar Bri study course. Even high risk future lawyers deserve a chance to practice law.

    I am willing to put an AMMPLE grad up against a tier one grad any day. Outside of big law no one cares what school you graduate from. And like in life if you are connected, it certainly doesn't matter what school you attend.

    Tier 4 grads can do the same task as Tier one grads. Example, In most of the law school all classes / subjects are usually the same at most schools.

    Otherwise it would not be a JD program. Case in point. If a law grad from Harvard wants to practice in Florida, he must take he same bar exam as all of the students that attended the Florida law schools (above 8 at this point).

    And guess what, the Harvard bar taker and all of the Florida grads taking the bar will rely heavily on Bar Bri to cross the finish line with a passing bar score.

    There a lot of idiots across the law school tiers from 1 to 4. This is why in the new economy its the new age grads that are business minded and hustle will end up on top, regardless of what law school they attended.

    No one ever said the system was fare. Famu grads are eating well out there.

    1. "No one ever said the system was fare."

      This sentence alone says a whole lot!

      8:16 is spot on especially for court room work. I graduated from a T2 school and had connections in the world of "pickle law." I was involved in the "pickle law" community and worked during college and law school in the "Pickle Law" industry. I also worked the Federal "Pickle Administration. I sent a resume to a high profile, white shoe big law firm. I was given an interview because one of the partners was familiar with my work and connections in the pickle industry. I was not hired because I was from a T2 School and the one partner told me that they only hire from T1 to justify their billings. He was honest with me. The partner who wanted me told me it was the firm's lose... I went on to do other things, no regrets except for the money...I could have been driving an Audi instead of a Jetta.

    3. Now Mr. AAMPLE, are you off your meds again?


    On January 27, 2016, Paul Caron covered this developmenTTTTT in a TaxProf entry labeled “ABA Committee Recommends Accreditation for Indiana Tech Law School.” Head to the comments section, for the following gems.

    Captain Hruska Carswell, Continuance King posted this brilliant insight, on January 27, 2016 6:14:08 AM:

    “Indiana needs another law school? Just like the Sport Clips commercial, Indiana Tech wants to get into the Money Game! Where is the market for this skul? Cooley and Valpo are competitors. This is unbelievable. Its like a Walmart, Target, Meijer, Dollar General on every corner.”

    On January 27, 2016 at 7:03:25 AM, Unemployed Northeastern wrote this reply:

    “The ABA continues to show its concern about and relevance to the state of current legal education and employment options. Rubber stamp, rubber stamp, rubber stamp.”

    Edgar Liton provided this brief note on January 27, 2016 7:24:49 AM:

    “Regulatory Capture. So sad . . .”

    Someone using handle “Jojo” posted this response on January 27, 2016 at 9:12:19 AM:

    “The ABA is on its way to losing all credibility.”

    Old Ruster from JDJunkyard furnished the hilarious remarks on Jan 27, 2016 2:47:13 PM:

    “If the ABA's accreditation authority thinks this country needs another law school, then I think this country needs another law school accreditation authority!”

    Those who have graduated from the three years of pointless hell called law school – and have since entered the meat grinder of the job market – understand the score. Simply put, there are too damn many law grads for the available number of attorney openings each year.

    There is no sense in accrediting more garbage heaps. Then again, the ABA cockroaches don’t care about students, recent grads, or even the “profession.” At this point, they merely want to make sure that the academic thieves can hang onto their positions a bit longer. How “honorable,” huh?!?!

  24. "...[T]he ABA understands the need to be inclusive in a field rife with elitism..." Ha! Apparently, the ABA has never picked up a newspaper. Google the word "lawyer" any day of the week and stuff like this will pop up on the regular:
