    The Hastings College decision to cut law school enrollment is a response to the loud and growing critics of law school education and the lawsuits being driven by former students. With the economy as it is now and the prospects not hugely better, this is the first in what I believe many law schools will do to help dampen the criticism. http://www.legalfunding.com/news/post-settlement-lawsuit-funding-for-attorneys
