    All of these lawsuits are absurd. If you were smart enough to do reasonably well on the LSAT, kids, you were smart enough to know that you shouldn't have wasted your time and money on law school. Anyone who's so much as glanced at a newspaper these past five years knows full well the legal sector has been experiencing a long-overdue and welcomed contraction. For decades, America has suffered a glut of lawyers and lawsuits, and the increasingly desperate and shameless nature of many personal-injury and consumer-protection claims, for example, make that plainly clear.
