    Do they really need another task force? Does anyone really think the big drop off in the amount of legal work is due to some problem with the law schools? What's happened is this: Businesses and individuals got used to the idea that legal representation cost a lot of money so they paid it, whether they wanted to or not. Since the financial down turn, they simply can't afford it so they haven't been spending the money. And guess what? They've found they don't need as much legal work and they don't need to pay big money for the work they do have done.
