Crooklyn Law School Pig Nicolas Allard is Happy to Use “Social Justice” to Attract and Fleece More Students


http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/the-judiciary/321051-an-unexpected-trump-effect-lawyer-as-hero

Allard Sticks His Hoof in His Snout Again: On February 24, 2017, Pig Nicolas Allard added an excrementitious opinion piece labeled An unexpected Trump effect: Lawyer as hero.” Take a look at this filth that appeared in The Hill:

“Almost single handedly, President Trump has made lawyers the breakout stars in the early days of his new administration. 

Legal experts in immigration and refugee law, international trade, religious freedom, and the constitutional powers of the executive branch have, seemingly overnight, become regular guests on network and cable news, quoted on front pages of national newspapers, and gained thousands of followers on social media. 

Law schools can seize this moment and, like the generation inspired by Woodward and Bernstein to pursue careers in journalism, lead the renaissance in legal education that would revive a profession in need of an injection of youth, idealism, and high-tech savvy. 

Lawyers are playing a central role in this grand national civics class that we have been called to attend. With in-depth legal knowledge and an encyclopedic sense of history, these men and women — judges, law practitioners, scholars, and law students — have raised our collective consciousness (with the help of musical theater’s Alexander Hamilton) about the important role lawyers and the law have played in the founding of our nation and the ongoing stability of our system conferred by the adherence to the rule of law.

The armies of lawyers and law students that descended on major airports across the country in the wake of the president’s executive order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, as lawyers from the ACLU prepared their case to stay the ban in federal court, inspired a sense of pride in the profession not experienced in years. 

Many of our students and faculty members were standing outside the United States courthouse in downtown Brooklyn in the cold January night cheering with thousands of others as the lawyers bounded down the stairs with the court-ordered stay in their hands.” [Emphasis mine]

Congratulations, Lard Ass. Your students and faculty members were mere cheerleaders in this great “civil awakening.” Then again, that was probably the most “productive” your “legal scholars” have been in years. Unless, of course, you count reading the Washington Post and doing the New York Times crossword puzzle as “work.”

Later on, the fat swine – who appears to have not missed a meal in decades – chortled over his garbage pit, Crooklyn Law School, seeing a 12 percent increase in applications last year. And that is all that matters to these devils. There are so many holes in this bastard’s “argument,” a ten year old could rip it to shreds. First, lawyers and legislators at this nation’s founding played a central role in legalizing slavery and in classifying black men and women as “chattel.” Plus, bar passage rates are declining around the country – largely because the commodes are admitting more cretins and simpletons. Also, should one take on $180K+ in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a chance to become a “good, public-spirited lawyer”?! 

http://www.learnliberty.org/blog/social-justice-lawyers-wont-save-law-school/

Law Student Busts Up Allard’s Weak Case: On March 4, 2017, Alexander Grass – a student at the Benjamin N. Cardozo Sewer of Law at Ye$hiva Univer$ity – wrote a great response in Learn Liberty. That article was entitled “Social justice lawyers” won’t save law school.” Here are a couple of excerpts of Grass wiping his ass with Allard’s snout:

“Last Friday, the Dean of Brooklyn Law School, Nicholas Allard, published an op-ed in The Hill that theorized a recent minor uptick in the number of law school applications was due to “the intense interest among many Millennials in issues of social justice and the urge to make a positive difference.” 

More specifically, Dean Allard pointed to the hordes of attorneys and law students that packed airport terminals in January to provide counsel to visitors caught up in President Trump’s poorly conceived immigration ban. In the dean’s opinion, these activists inspired new law school applicants “like the generation inspired by Woodward and Bernstein to pursue careers in journalism.” 

There are entrenched, systemic problems in legal education — over-valued sticker prices, nearly insurmountable student loan debt, curricular requirements that skimp on teaching real lawyering practices — that guarantee law school is a bad choice for many or most students. Dean Allard is making an emotional appeal, but the truth is that legal education is undergoing permanent changes. These changes mean that fewer students should go to law school, constitutional crisis or not.” [Emphasis mine]

That was a nice, stiff combination to Nicholas Allard’s head, snapping his head and hot dog neck back a bit. The cockroach can only make an emotional appeal, preying on idealistic young people, because that is all he has left in his “arsenal.” Now, for the knockout blow:

“Even if, as Dean Allard imagines, future law students are ready to charge the gates in the name of social justice, they still have to pass the bar exam. With historically low pass rates at both the state and national level — only 43 percent passed California’s 2016 bar exam, for instance — many law school alumni won’t even become lawyers.

Dean Allard is begging for an injection of underqualified lawyers into a market whose growth has been steadily declining for decades. Or, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics puts it, “more students graduate from law school each year than there are jobs available.” 

The dean has no proposal about what to do with the steadily growing pool of law students who can’t become attorneys. Instead, he offers hollow platitudes about how we’ve “lost sight of how critically relevant lawyers are to the social order,” and how there’s “precious little understanding of … the role lawyers play in bringing to fruition all the benefits of our constitutional guarantees.” [Emphasis mine]

Conclusion: In the final analysis, Nicholas Allard is a cockroach who will do and say anything – in order to get more asses in seats at his second tier sewer. He is no different from the deans and “presidents” at the other ABA-accredited diplomas, other than perhaps being a little more portly and aggressive in defending the law school scam in public forums. Hell, since 2014 he has been constantly bitching about the bar exam being “too difficult.” Ask yourself the following: Would you buy a used car from this bastard?!

    1. Nearly every lawyer fighting Trump's executive orders is a Harvard Law School graduate. Further, nearly every legal commentator on network television is a Harvard or Yale graduate. Those jobs don't go to just any lawyers. Even Kayleigh McEnany is a Harvard Law grad. Who would have guessed that?

    2. In general, the people fighting Trump's orders are all part of the liberal gilded elite classes.

      We've seen what happens when the unconnected start protesting. Like those immigrants refusing to show up at work. They got fired.

      It's one thing to be a government employee or high level corporate worker. The rules are completely different, do whatever you want, get the benefit of the doubt, get a skilled attorney if there's a question.

      It's another when you're just some schmuck on the low end of the totem pole, struggling to make a living. The labor laws the government employee and decent level Corporate America office worker have isn't the same the doc review monkey or dishwasher has. Generally speaking, most lawyers will never have those protections. But the ones that will are the ones that graduated from the very top law schools or had the very best connections, usually a combination of both.

      But it's easy to scam the naive young, and their dumb middle class or lower parents. The middle class is always busy attacking its own children.

  5. “The armies of lawyers and law students that descended on major airports across the country...inspired a sense of pride in the profession not experienced in years.”

    Pig “Dean” Allard and his ilk in legal “education” are the ones who destroyed the legal profession in the pursuit of profit. They have a complete lack of respect for a profession that is essential to our republic. The founders of this country held the role of attorneys in such high regard, that they created the right to counsel in criminal prosecutions. In fact, the founders were so fearful of abuses by the government, that they granted us numerous legal protections in the Bill of Rights. Lawyers are essential to defend our rights granted under the Constitution. But law “professors” and “deans” don’t view the legal profession like the rest of us. They simply see the profession as an easy way to exploit others for profit.

    What a load of crap!

    The last thing this country needs are more unemployable social justice warriors stuck living in their parents' basement because they can't land a job in a shrinking legal job market.

    Did it ever occur to the casual observer that the reason so many lawyers have risen to this particular occasion is because they can't find any meaningful work anywhere else? I mean, just how many full-time lawyers is the ACLU hiring to fight off the evil Trumpenstein monster?

    "Social justice" is a bunch of bullshit used to dupe idealistic undergrads into diving head first into a fictional world of American lawyers championing things like civil rights, economic justice and equality for all. And every year, a new crop of lemmings are led by Pied Pipers like Nicolas Allard through three years of mostly useless hide-the-ball law school games into a world of marginal to zero employment opportunities and debt peonage--the lucky ones being able to land a glamorous ADA gig at the King's County DA's office that qualifies for PSLF.

    Ask yourselves these two questions, future law school matriculants: Just how many new lawyer jobs are being created in the NYC area each year? And just how many new grads do all the NYC area law schools churn out each year?

    Remember, kids, that you're a sophisticated consumer of education--capable of crunching the proverbial numbers....

  7. When I saw all those lawyers at the airport, I thought to myself,"Finally, they have something to do!" A couple problems, though: 1. I'm guessing these lawyers weren't paid for their efforts; and 2. I'm guessing the lawyers who actually filed these actions were of the graduated-from-Harvard-in-the-1970s variety, not the indebted horde clapping for them outside the courthouse. Take note, 0Ls - you can clap for these one percenters of the legal profession without paying $150K for the privilege.

  10. I once wrote a letter to the carpenters' union on behalf of a non-union contractor client because the union was picketing a job, saying that it shouldn't have gone to my guy because he did X, Y and Z terrible things to workers.

    The main point of my letter was to point out that my client had nothing to do with that particular job and that the union was skirting the shoals of defamation. But I couldn't resist adding at the end that if they wanted to sell my client's men on their union putting on the spectacle of union carpenters who had nothing to do all day but march around with cardboard signs was probably not the best way to go about it.

    I'd tell that story to lemmings cheering at airports and on courthouse steps, but to what avail? Maybe if they applied for internships with the myriad organizations advocating for illegal immigrants and saw how they did . . . naw . . . wouldn't make a dent in their delusions. I'm not a law dean, what do I know?

  11. If you are serious about social justice, fighting the Trump administration, and going to law school, then listen up. DO NOT go to a low ranked law school! Work hard in undergrad to get a high GPA, put in the work to get a high score on the LSAT, and attend a Top 8 law school. Public interest organizations don’t want graduates of low ranking law schools. The law professors and deans of these schools don’t give a damn about you. They just want your student loan money. Think of all the law grads working as exterminators, parole officers, or party planners. Do you really think for one second, that those grads thought public interest law was beneath them? A few years ago, law schools tried to create the myth that law grads were unemployed, because they would only work in high paying big firm jobs. That claim couldn’t be further from the truth. Any legal job is hard to get these days.

    It is very simple. The market for lawyers is monumentally oversaturated. It is a cage fight for clients, fees, work or jobs even in a full employment economy. In Illinois alone there are 98,000 registered attorneys. That works out to about 1 lawyer for every 120 people in Illinois. Attorneys are so desperate they are trying to lure them in with promises of $49.00 Traffic Ticket defense. Like the ads you see for the Hyundai at $89.00 per month. Dean wormer here has no idea what he is talking about. If you are independently wealthy, there is plenty of unpaid social justice positions available.

    On March 8, 2017, the Law School Truth Center featured a post labeled "Praise Be to God for the Trump Effect." Look at this opening:

    "Somehow I missed it last week when hero-worthy-of-psalms Nick Allard fired yet another thunderous sniper-shot from the right side of history:

    Almost single handedly, President Trump has made lawyers the breakout stars in the early days of his new administration.

    Praise be to God for giving having our peers scurrying to airports like maggoty mice who just discovered a bread factory; surely such blessings equals breakout stardom profession-wide - and revenue to pay rent, bar dues, and bottles from the top shelf.

    Law schools can seize this moment and, like the generation inspired by Woodward and Bernstein to pursue careers in journalism, lead the renaissance in legal education that would revive a profession in need of an injection of youth, idealism, and high-tech savvy.

    Praise be to God for sending a 1979 law school graduate to deliver the Good News of salvation in youth, idealism, and tech savvy.

    Praise be to God for the generation of journalists inspired by Woodward and Bernstein, who led a euphoric cloudburst of hard-hitting investigative journalism that led us to our current most blessed political-media state.

    Praise be to God for the coming renaissance; may Botticelli's Venus pull her hair up, wear a gray pantsuit, and reverse Citizen's United.

    [A]nother compelling factor is the intense interest among many Millennials in issues of social justice and the urge to make a positive difference.

    They are a keenly entrepreneurial generation, and the law and well-trained lawyers are central to success of new ventures.

    Praise be to God for the Millennials, particularly the ones who lack the relative pragmatism and thrift of their Gen X counterparts and instead want to pursue social justice as a lifestyle choice."

    Still want to take the plunge, Dumbass?!?! By the way, did you notice that Cockroach Nicholas Allard did not mention that large firms and companies are using technology to eliminate jobs?! Yes, what an honest and decent man, huh?!?!

    Full-time tuition at Crooklyn Law School - for the 2017-2018 academic year - is set at $50,310.

    1. I'm all for fighting government overreach, no matter who's in the White House. But it's clear that non-elite law students getting jobs at smaller firms and city/state gov agencies and county DA/PD offices (which is I'm guessing the best outcome for the top third/half/whatever outside the very top of the class) are not going to get to take part in that fight. It's a fucking shame that some law school admin can use this situation - use the suffering of desperate people - to profit and cause even more suffering.

      Then again, if these kids couldn't figure out a non-elite school wasn't going to turn them into fucking Clarence Darrow after everything that has been written and exposed to public view then they're hopeless anyway.

    Here is the commode’s 2015 tax form. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014, Nicholas Allard made $505,544 in reportable compensation – plus $98,764 in estimated amount of other compensation from the organization and related organizations. This information is on page 13 of the report. He is listed as “president,” dean, and “professor.” The form does not list his weight or BMI.

    Before you leave the room to vomit in the toilet, former “president” Joan Wexler made even more than this rotund pig. Her information is listed on page 14 of this document. According to the form, for the same fiscal year, Swine Wexler “earned” $510,177 in reportable compensation – in addition to $105,096 in estimated amount of other compensation from the organization and related organizations.

    Apparently, the thieves at this stand alone in$TTiTTuTTion felt that Allard had to have TOTAL COMPENSATION of $604,308 for that year alone – even though the ABA-accredited trash pit was by then already seeing big-ass drops in LSAT scores among enrolled first year students.

    https://www.lstreports.com/schools/brooklyn/admissions/

    Pig Wexler’s “work” was evidently considered worthy of $615,273 in TOTAL COMPENSATION at this pile of excrement, as former “president.” And this is why the bitches and hags – leg by Allard – continue to cry about the need for “social justice lawyers” and more attorneys to represent low-income clients. The problem is the HUGE price tag to attend this rancid dung pit does not justify taking on cases from broke-ass litigants.

    Dear Joan,
    Please know that the main effect of your life’s work has been the destruction of young peoples’ futures—hundreds of bright-eyed, ambitious kids per year in fact. Are you that far detached from reality to not know what your “school” does to its “students?” The vast majority of your graduates are unemployable. After "graduating" from your mill, these young adults are unable to marry, start families—some are literally starving. So I hope you’ve enjoyed your lifestyle. I hope you believe in some kind of god and I hope your beliefs are spot on… because if they are, you have a long eternity in your future. Tell Bernie we all said “fuck you” when you are burning in Hell.

    It doesn't surprise me that Joan Wexler makes over half a mil a year. Imagine if you owned a car dealership and you had a salesperson that could sell 1,500 Hyundai Excels for $46K each(the equivalent price of a fully loaded C-class Mercedes Benz). Essentially, you have a salesperson who is bringing in nearly $70M a year for selling a horrendous and worthless product at a significant premium. If you were the owner of this dealership, half a mil is peanuts to compensate your top salesperson.

    President Wexler has managed to put so much window dressing on a pile of dung, that she is able to sucker 1,500 students every year into paying $46K to attend an institute that produced the likes of Bruce Cutler and that was parodied in the timeless classic "My Cousin Vinny." This woman either has a special skill or people are really just dumb.

    Can BLS produce decent lawyers? I am sure it can produce competent attorneys that can handle traffic tickets, do your occasiomal real estate closing in Mineola and prepare simple wills. Are these skills worth over $200K? Well the fact that every year 1,500 TTT grads thinks it is says a lot about President Wexler.

    I am not worried about Joan Wexler. Her day will come and she will stand before God ready to be judged. Hopefully all the souls that have been destroyed by attending BLS will be there as her jury.

    When I attended Brooklyn, Dean Wexler paraded around like she was King. She could not be bothered by the common folk -- the students who paid her salary -- when they attempted to interact with her. Students regularly got into altercations with her in the lobby as she rushed into the elevator to her office. She was much more interested in making sure everyone knew about her friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton than actually caring about the students at her school. F U Wexler.

  22. Thanks for the update, X-RWU! I just read the disturbing account, thanks to your tip.

    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/04/15/jason-bohn-sentenced-to-life-in-prison-without-parole-in-torture-death-of-danielle-thomas/

    For others who may be interested, here is the WCBS story - from April 15, 2014 - entitled "Jason Bohn Sentenced To Life In Prison Without Parole In Torture Death Of Danielle Thomas." In the accompanying photo, you can see the bitch cry at his sentencing hearing. Here is the beginning:

    "A Queens man convicted of first-degree murder in the 2012 torture death of his girlfriend has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

    Jason Bohn, 35, was sentenced Tuesday. He was found guilty March 4 in the strangulation and beating death of Danielle Thomas in June 2012."

    He was a soft dough-boy back then. I wonder if beatings and ass-rapings have since hardened his demeanor. Further on, the report continues:

    "Thomas’ beaten and bruised body was found in the couple’s Astoria apartment on June 26, 2012. She died of blunt-force trauma to her neck and torso.

    Authorities who arrived at the scene found the 27-year-old’s body in a bathtub surrounded by ice, officials said.

    A note found at the scene read, “It was an accident. I had been drinking and I was drunk when I got home. She was already asleep. I woke up and there was fighting between us. When I woke up again she was unconscious. I am sorry.”

    According to the trial testimony, Bohn’s deadly assault on Thomas was captured in a voice mail in what is believed to have been an accidental dialing of the friend’s number. In the recording, which was played at the trial, Thomas is heard begging Bohn for her life as he strangled her, demanding to know why she had called a certain area code, and saying to her: “This is your life,” to which she replied, “I know.”

    Bohn, a University of Florida law school graduate, continued to assault her, saying things such as: “Danielle, you don’t have a lot of time” and ignoring her as she says, “Jason, I can’t breathe.”

    Did this dumbass learn to cover his tracks from his crim law classes? Wasn't it nice of CBS New York to include that he graduated from the University of Florida Fredric G. Levin Commode of Law?!?! I wonder if Columbia University was relieved.

    "As WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported, there was much evidence of Bohn’s violent history. Weeks before her death, Thomas had gone to police after a beating had left her with black eyes and on crutches. Bohn had even called her cellphone while she was at the police station and officers heard him threatening to bash in her skull and hunt her down “like a dog.”

    Assault charges were pending. Thomas, who worked as a financial analyst at Weight Watchers, had an order of protection when she was killed.

    “The defendant has been held accountable for his actions and will spend the rest of his life in prison,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a news release Tuesday."

    As you can see, this guy had two degrees from Columbia University and a law degree from the University of Florida - and he was working as a financial consultant for Weight Watchers. In fact, he was a "visiting law student" at Columbia from 2007-2009. He seems to have transferred to Florida for the final year of law school.

  24. Over the last six years, the state of Florida has spent $237 million on private lawyers to defend the government’s agenda. If you think that this money trickles down to grads of low ranked law schools, guess again. In a legal dispute with the state of Georgia over water rights, the state of Florida hired one of the world’s most prestigious firms, Latham & Watkins.

    Whether it’s the ACLU or the state of Florida, organizations want graduates of top law schools to handle their disputes. They don’t want graduates of low ranked law schools. The law school scam movement is not trying to dissuade you from attending law school so there is less competition. The law school scam movement just wants to protect you from handing over $150k to deceitful, lazy law professors and deans, in the pursuit of obtaining a worthless JD.

    1. Wow, the state AG already has 450 attorneys on staff, but the connected Big Law partners know how to get paid anyway!

      Notice how they make sure to get the $$ UPFRONT.

      Frankly, it's not even healthy competition like between GM and Toyota. Law Practice is more like 5 McDonalds and 2 Burger Kings on each corner with each advertising cheaper and cheaper hamburgers. Just look at any City, Town, rural and urban. Drive down any street and count the number of law offices...those are the lawyers who don't work from their LeSabres or basements.

  25. Can you believe this place attracts shitheads from Montana and South Dakota?

    1. Attracting shitheads from Brooklyn is bad enough.

      I suppose that the shitheads from Montana and South Dakota see admission to Crooklyn as their chance to be a part of it, New York, New York. Here's a clue: only Columbia or NYU will give you a bite at the Big Apple. Crooklyn and the other toilet schools in the New York metropolitan area—a total of nine in New York State, plus two more right over the border in New Jersey—offer you unmanageable debt without meaningful prospects of entering the legal profession.

  26. Looks like in spite of really strong academics, Allard was Lathamed from Latham and then Lathamed or on the verge of being Lathamed from Patton Boggs. Hence he lands at Crooklyn, lucky to be rescued from a further fall in the legal profession.

  28. Hey Nando, I'm a junior associate at a biglaw office in Asia and am earning pretty good money without any undergraduate debt in my home country. I've been considering applying for the JD because it will be pretty much the same with whatever I'm doing here, but earning me 5x whatever I'm making here if I get into a good school. Do you think I should go for it?
