Ken Gallant

The statistics suggest that the "business model" of most law schools (especially private start ups) is not dependent on "big law" jobs to pay off loans. Once you get out of the so-called "top thirty" or so law schools, only a small percentage of students ever got "big law" jobs.
The only start-ups that might be attempting to get in on that economy are the very few well-funded state law school start ups that are connected with a major research university (e.g., the new one in the U.Cal. system that is giving free tuition to its first class) that want to immediately jump into the "top tier".

So, I guess my view is this article is a bit wrong-headed. The real issue for new law schools is the market for small law firm lawyers, state prosecutors and state and local agencies, local public defenders and legal aid, etc.--i.e., the classic "non-big law" jobs.

UGG Sale

I have gotten five pair of Uggs from here, they come in the Ugg box, with registration papers, they have the Ugg patch on the backs of them… the only difference is the price!! Highly recommended site for EVERYTHING!
