From Daily Caller:
One of the lowest-performing law schools in America dodged a legal bullet Thursday, after a California jury said it didn’t have to compensate a graduate who was unable to obtain a legal job.
But Thomas Jefferson’s court victory won’t change what is, in general, a very grim market for attorneys in the United States. The legal industry has never really recovered from the 2008 financial crisis, and a declining number of jobs has clashed with a seemingly neverending torrent of new JDs. While applications to law schools have fallen dramatically, enrollments have dipped more slowly, and every year there are significantly more freshly-minted JD’s than there are legal jobs for them to fill. Yet even as the job market has stagnated, law school tuition has kept growing at a rapid pace, meaning the typical law school graduate has to take on over $100,000 in debt to complete their degree.
We are told, further, that jobless young grads are depressed.
Reality check: The culd solve their problem by providing legal artillery for the junior jackboots of Asshat U, drifting along with =them into government jobs policing what everyone else thinks, says, and does.
