    Please. If you were smart enough to have done reasonably well on the LSAT, you were smart enough to have read a newspaper once in a while. Had you done so, you'd have realized that the bottom dropped out of legal employment five years ago. Firms have down-sized dramatically since then, and only a shameless blame-shifter would seek to pin on someone else his foolish embrace of debt in pursuit of a law degree.

  • Law school scam

    Why is Whittier not named in the suit....I can't imagine their graduates are happily employed. Not with their 17% employment rate even though the year before they boasted of an over 80% employment rate!

  • exposing the law school scam

    Did the law schools pay off the judges?
