What's being said

  • Bravo! It sounds like UCLA has figured out a way to offset the decline in JD/LLM applicants by making their law program even more sexy.

    I'm curious though if any research has been done to see how many law firms are willing to pay LL.M. salaries for what is essentially a two unit course "sexed up" as an LL.M.?

    And when these newly minted LL.M.s can't afford to pay their student loans because no one is hiring sex lawyers are these masters of sex law going to start filing even more frivolous sex discrimination suits to make ends meet?

    God I would hate to be a straight man in Hollywood who tells my transgender friend that her bag doesn't match her shoes and end up before Judge Judy on a gender discrimination claim.

    And they wonder why the rest of the country thinks California is the land of fruits and nuts...
