I graduated from CUNY Law School in 1988 and our pass rate was 30% (I got lucky, maybe, if you can call a career in legal education at a failing law school lucky.) One of my classmates in the majority 70% became a motivational speaker and has a TV show on Oprah's network called "Iyanla, Fix My Life." Be imaginative with that law degree, kids.

I'm sorry, but I have trouble justifying the existence of crappy schools like Charlotte with "well, the graduates just need to be more creative with their degrees!" SMH

@ suny buffalo faculty,

Citing one example of a success from a vast pool of people proves nothing. And there is no evidence that her law degree contributed to that success anyway. People should go to law school because they want to be lawyers. If you want to do something else, avoid the debt.

I think suny buffalo faculty is on the right side of history - I read the comment as sarcastic and in support of the idea that legal education and the market has been on the wrong side for some time. Maybe that's not correct(?).

If just one person passes the Bar and scores an auto wreck matter with multiple fractures, airbag deployment and serious disabilities, they are a SUCESS!!! They can become a Leading Lawyer. A Super Lawyer with an AVVO rating of 10 a year out of law school. Got to look at this as the glass half full. Just Beautiful. Look, our Leader never had a government or other real job and now he is the top dog. Same thing could happen with a degree from this joint.

Any doubt here? Compare, if you will

"Frankly, I don't blame Fox for this one. I blame our legal profession. We have become a veritable "used car lot" of titles, monikers, and descriptors for what we are: Attorneys. We have Leading Lawyers and Super Lawyers and the slick magazines that go with the title. We have AV rated (whatever the hell that means) and Martindale Hubble Lawyers. Throw in AVVO too. I guess it's not good enough any longer to just be an advocate of the Constitution on behalf of an ordinary citizen."

Is this disgusting?

And, consider this, does Lubet seem to like this activity?

The unnamed school in the northeast appears to be University of New Haven, at least there was a previously announced "affiliation" between the schools. Totally makes sense (sarcasm alert), I mean, a regional (?) school in CT will be raking in law students in NC.

New Haven deal has been off since October.
