Almost anyone with a pulse would be a good replacement for O'Brien, who infamously took a salary of >$600,000 to graduate law students who are lucky to find any kind of legal work - of the 80 students in the class of 2018, 30 found jobs for which a law degree was required.


While I tend to agree about the previous dean and his salary, I’m not certain about those employment numbers for New England Law.

The 509 disclosures show New England had right around 180 graduates in 2018.

Just over 80 had JD-required jobs as of the March 15th reporting date.

Though the main issue may be bar passage, not employment demand. ~89-91 of the students from that class appear to have passed the bar on the first taking in July 2018.

It would be very interesting to see how much overlap there was between the two groups, those who passed the bar and those with JD-required jobs.
