What's being said

  • I think it is great. As a father of two wanting to go to law school, I wish there were more schools trying to work with students and at better costs. I have real world experience and a published opinion in my name. But trying to acclimate my life to law school while working in a law firm and raising two kids seems impossible when you live an hour and a half from the closest law school. I honestly don't understand why we should have to go law school if we have read the law like the program that exists in Washington. If I can sit for the bar and pass, I should be able to practice, after all, there are a large number of attorneys that passed the bar, made it through law school, but are still hardly qualified to practice.

    Just what we need: more mediocre dopes running around with law degrees, unable to find jobs and deeper in debt than they would have been had they just settled on respectable careers as electricians or plumbers, for example.
