    LASC is shutting down 10 courtrooms by June 2013. What's the affect on lawyers and client services?

    It's absolutely wrong to say that the "series of conferences that law schools and legal education organizations have held" "have had little problem diagnosing the problems facing legal education."

    The fact is, they've only named the symptoms. Sure, that's step 1 in any diagnosis; but getting highly creative, capable and experienced minds together to ponder and explore more deeply is the only way we're going to get any diagnoses.

    I hope the new group manages to take its time, think big (including "outside the box" of the past that is now over), and embrace contradictory possibilities rather than settle for compromising them all into one general platitude.

    Law schools are a joke. They keep going back to the trough collecting 40K a year per student. The legal profession is a joke. No quality standards. The ABA serves law school faculty.
