Onto the Scam?


Some of the signals being sent by Paul and his fellow truthtellers might be getting through to at least some potential 0Ls, as well as the media:

Legal diplomas are apparently losing luster.

The organization behind the Law School Admission Test reported that the number of tests it administered this year dropped by more than 16 percent, the largest decline in more than a decade.

The Law School Admission Council reported that the LSAT was given 129,925 times in the 2011-12 academic year. That was well off the 155,050 of the year before and far from the peak of 171,514 in the year before that. In all, the number of test takers has fallen by nearly 25 percent in the last two years.

The decline reflects a spreading view that the legal market in the United States is in terrible shape and will have a hard time absorbing the roughly 45,000 students who are expected to graduate from law school in each of the next three years. And the problem may be deep and systemic.

    It’s hard not to notice all those young people in dirty suits standing at intersections, holding up signs that say, “Will litigate for food”.

  • Where will all the people that used to get law degree go?

    The number of law school applicants will decline significantly…and the acceptance rates will increase significantly, as the law schools continue to admit about the same number of students, in order to keep remorselessly milking that cash cow for all it’s worth.

    The Lost Generation needs a bailout, stat.
