Deep State Special Legal Counsel

If one student passes the Bar, they are a success. I know several Cooley grads who better off financially in their practices than me and I graduated from a ranked law school.

The real issue is the grotesque over saturation of lawyers. All law schools pumped us out like chord wood for far too long. There is a lawyer on every corner and its a cage fight for clients, fees, and work. It doesn't do the client any service if a lawyer is worried about feeding her family and chasing the next fee because of real income scarcity and law school debt. The under served really aren't served.

"The real issue is the grotesque over saturation of lawyers. All law schools pumped us out like chord wood for far too long."

And Cooley is one of the poster-children for this problem. That said, you're right, the issue facing all players is cost and oversaturation, and the resultant decline in quality that can occur. More is not always better.

The invisible hand smacks everybody, even law schools.

Deep State Special Legal Counsel

The invisible hand smacked the dental profession during the 90s. The ADA recognized and admitted that there was an oversaturated market. They closed and consolidated dental schools throughout the country and strengthened standards. Why are law schools any different? Don't tell me either that it revolves around fundamental "societal services" and preservation of the system. If you don't have teeth, you can't eat...what is more fundamental than that?
