TTTTT Holiday Giveaway: ABA Cockroaches Fully Accredit the University of Massachusetts Sewer of Law
News Coverage: On December 7, 2016, the Boston Globe published a piece from Laura Krantz, under the headline “UMass Law School gains full accreditation.” Look at this opening:
“The University of Massachusetts School of Law in Dartmouth announced Tuesday that it has received full accreditation by the American Bar Association, a milestone for the six-year-old school that has struggled with growing pains.
UMass officials said they believe its new status will propel the state’s first public law school, which has faced lackluster enrollment and ongoing financial issues, toward greater success and help in its mission to produce attorneys focused on social justice.
“For those of us concerned about protecting the rights of all residents of the Commonwealth, UMass Law will play a key role in that effort moving forward,” said UMass President Martin T. Meehan.
The school received provisional accreditation in 2012. After a visit in March and several rounds of meetings this fall, the bar association awarded full accreditation Dec. 2.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, this measure will propel this toilet to new heights, right?!?! The fact remains that this public cesspool will always be a dung heap that admits waterheads and delusional asswipes who cannot get into a real law school. At least now, it can obtain “Ranked Not Published” status by the pussies at US “News” & World Report.
Other Analysis: On December 7, 2016, OTLSS featured a post from "Old Guy," which was entitled “U Mass Dartmouth accredited; students are worth $53 per hour.” Read the whole article, but enjoy the following excerpt in particular:
“Don't accuse the ABA of letting ink encrust its rubber stamp of approval. Just months after accrediting Indiana Tech (only to see this internationally esteemed center of law & hip-hop shut its doors forever), the ABA has done the same for the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. See this puff piece that U Mass Dartmouth—call it "You Ass" for short—published yesterday:
U Mass Dartmouth rose like a phoenix (the University of Phoenix?) from the ashes of an entity called the Southern New England School of Law, which dumped its ass(ets) onto the state in 2010. The state, in exchange, felt compelled to set up its ninth—yes, ninth—law school.
Now, the establishment of law schools at Indiana Tech and possibly soon in southernmost Texas has been justified in part by the great distance that the fine denizens of Fort Wayne and McAllen would have to travel in order to attend the nearest law school. Weak as it indubitably is for Indiana and Texas, that argument seems downright risible for Massachusetts, which can be traversed from Pittsfield to Provincetown in only four hours—even more quickly if a Masshole is behind the wheel. So that argument wasn't even proffered in support of U Mass Dartmouth. Instead, the upstart academy was justified as the state's only public law school. Eight private ones, evidently, just do not meet the needs of the Bay State. Why stop at Harvard when you can have U Mass Dartmouth?
Like every other toilet school, U Mass Dartmouth claims a special mission: "to diversify the legal profession and expand access to justice for citizens". Ho-hum. Where have I heard that song before?
The puff piece proclaims that "UMass Law had the most diverse entering class in New England in 2015 (35.5%) and the rate is 33% this year"…
U Mass bears all the hallmarks of a toilet, especially its dreadful median LSAT score (148). Like so many other toilets, U Mass preys upon people who shouldn't be in law school, all the while congratulating itself for its "diversity".
What's this about "access to justice"? Just four days before announcing its accreditation, U Mass published another puff piece, this time about its students' volunteer work:
"Since the UMass School of Law was established at UMass Dartmouth in 2010 to serve the public interest, its students have delivered more than 87,000 hours of service to the community. This service has been valued at more than $4.5 million."
Pardon me? How can the "service" of students at a then-unaccredited toilet be worth that much? Because the bulk of the work, falling in the legal field (though what the students actually did is not clear), is assessed "[a]t $53 per hour (the amount paid to District Court-appointed lawyers in Massachusetts)". [Emphasis mine]
Licensed attorneys who graduated from this ABA-accredited pile of excrement would kill for a job that paid them $53 an hour. Hell, they would cry tears of joy while strangling a bum to death – with their bare hands.
Conclusion: Obtaining full accreditation from the American Bar Association cockroaches is about as big of an “accomplishment” as getting laid by a raggedy-ass prostitute. If you pay them, then they will perform the task assigned. Lemmings, this will not greatly increase your odds of landing decent legal positions. The Univer$iTTTTTy of Ma$$achu$eTTTTT$ Sewer of Law will remain a bottom-feeding commode for the duration of its existence. Get that through your thick skull, Dumbass.
