Apparently I’m not the only one who found the comments to the WSJ Law School: Does It “Keep Your Options Open”? blog post notable. The WSJ law blog has posted a response from Professor Stracher himself, in which he provides the admirable advice:
But if your only reason for going to law school is because you want to be rich, or because you are confused and someone has told you it will “keep your options open” STOP RIGHT THERE, and read on.
This is a worthwhile addendum and clarification to Professor Stracher’s previous comments… And yet, the comments roll on. It will be interesting to watch.
And, just as a matter of interest amid the law school bashing going on here, anyone who missed Friday’s news might be interested to note that the ABA has conceded that it breached a 1996 consent decree prohibiting it from misusing the law school accreditation process.
