No Honor Among Academic Thieves: Law School Pigs Admit That There Are Too Many Damn Law Schools
The Swines’ True Colors Revealed: Actually, the only color these whores care about is green! Student loan money is their god. Anyway, on October 6, 2016, Kathryn Rubino posted an ATL entry labeled “Law Schools Agree: There Are Too Many Law Schools.” Take a look at this opening:
“Finally, we get a chance to look behind the curtain and find out what law schools really think. These seemingly inscrutable actors have tremendous pull on the overall direction of the legal profession, but, hidden behind a veil of bureaucracy and academia, observers are often left to reverse engineer their motivations and opinions. But no more, finally they speak.
Well, sort of. Kaplan Test Prep conducted a survey of law school admissions officers, and participation was high:
For the 2016 survey, 111 of the 205 American Bar Association-accredited law schools were polled by telephone between August and September 2016. Included among the 111 are 12 of the top 25 law schools, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.
So, what exactly did they say? Here’s the big one: 65 percent of schools surveyed agree it “would be a good idea if at least a few law schools closed.” I suppose none of the schools that answered in the affirmative think their institution should be the one that is shuttered. At a time when law schools are said to be in the midst of a “a brain drain” with high quality potential applicants eschewing the law school life, this provides some valuable insight. It seems most schools recognize just because a student has the ability to take on educational loans for law school doesn’t mean they should be going to law school. Churning out graduates for the sake of the churn doesn’t benefit the profession.
Despite this welcomed bit of realism, another data point suggests that even though they recognize more law students for the sake of law students isn’t always a good thing, getting schools to do something about it is more challenging.
24 percent of law schools cut the number of seats for their 2016 class of first-year students, lower than the 35 percent who reported doing so for the 2015 class of 1Ls and and the 54 percent who did for the 2014 class.” [Emphasis mine]
Here is the key point: fully 65 percent of the 111 ABA-accredited commodes polled by Kaplan Test Prep agreed that it would be a good idea if at least a few law schools closed. Yet, the pigs keep approving more toilets, through the American Bar Association. And fewer toilets cut the number of first-year seats in 2016 than in 2015. Plus, the cockroaches could enforce their own standards, in order to place several trash pits on probation for pathetic bar passage rates – and perhaps eventually close some of these places down. Currently, no school is on probation.
ABA Approved Law Schools Since 2005: Now, we will look at the list “ABA-Approved Law Schools by Year” provided by the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar. Here are the cesspools approved since 2005:
Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, Western State College of Law at Argosy University, Charleston School of Law, Faulker University Thomas Goode Jones SOL, Liberty University, Arizona Summit, Charlotte School of Law, Drexel University, Elon University, UC Irvine, University of La Verne College of Law, University of Massachusetts SOL-Dartmouth, Belmont University COL, Lincoln Memorial University Duncan School of Law, Concordia University, Indiana Tech. The pigs approved the reconstituted/merged toilet Mitchell | Hamline in 2015, however since this is actually one fewer garbage heap, it should not be considered an additional school.
That is a total of 16 new trash pits, since 2005! Hell, this organization already had law schools such as Cooley, TJ$L, Pace, and New York Law Sewer in place. Apparently, the swine felt – for $ome rea$on – that 189 or 190 ABA law schools was not enough back then, based on demand for “legal education.” The bastards certainly did not take need for new attorneys into account. After all, that is the students’ problem, right?!?!
Other Coverage: On October 7, 2016, the ABA Journal published a piece, from reporter Debra Cassens Weiss, which was entitled “Law school admissions officers are optimistic about legal ed, but would like to see some closures.” Here is the full text of that article below:
“Law school admissions officers are expressing more optimism, according to a survey of 111 law schools by Kaplan Test Prep.
Ninety-two percent of those responding to the survey said they are feeling more optimistic about the state of education than they did a year ago, according to a press release. And 78 percent expected an increase in applications for the 2016-17 applications cycle.
Only 24 percent of the schools had reduced the size of their 2016 class of first-year students, compared to 35 percent last year and 54 percent in 2014.
Despite their optimism, 65 percent agreed it would be a good idea if at least a few law schools closed.” [Emphasis mine]
The pigs are merely hopeful that more cretins, convicts, and mental midgets will apply to ABA-accredited toilets. After all, the bitches and hags on admi$$ion$ committee$ keep approving a higher percentage of dumbasses each year. CLEARLY, they do not give one damn about those students’ job outcomes or ability to pass a bar exam. How honorable, huh?!?!
Conclusion: Lemming, if the ABA diploma mills – including 12 of the top 25 schools – agreed that there are too many law schools, then YOU should pay close attention. Of course, you may be lured into a toilet with a scholarship, i.e. tuition reduction, offer. Perhaps, it is your “dream” to be a lawyer – even if you have never worked in a law firm in any capacity, and have no idea what the job entails. Do not consider attending any law school outside the top 5-10. If you cannot get into such an institution, then that is a clue to you that you do not have the talent to get into Biglaw – which is your best hope of paying off your student loans without enduring financial hell.
