    These statistics on law school are the reason why some of the students and graduates have sued their schools on the flawed stats. They claim the reason they are stuck with the loans is because clear data was not available for them concerning law school. Stories like this are going to keep coming as the cases against law school advance through the courts.

    Before considering a career as a lawyer read the monograph Demons of Democracy. You may have second thoughts when you finish it. For those of you who are lawyers, once you read it, you may want to get out of the profession. Any questions please contact me at
