Law School Enrollment Continues to Decline

The New York Times reports that first-year law student enrollment has fallen to 37,924 full- and part-time students in 2014, a 30 percent lower number than four years ago and the lowest level since 1973. The Law School Admission Council also reports declining admissions test rates. As students compare law school costs to the jobs they can realistically reach, University of Colorado professor Paul F. Campos said that “People are coming to terms with the fact that this decline is the product of long-term structural changes that are just not going away.” The article notes that less than two thirds of 2013’s graduated lawyers found began work requiring having passed the bar exam, partly a product of increasing automation and legal programs for consumers.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
