Posted on 10/12/2012 11:28:17 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Jobs in the legal industry are extremely difficult to come by.
And law schools across the country are admitting fewer and fewer students to cope with the shrinking job market.
But it's about to get even worse, according to legal blogger Matt Leichter who recently projected major tuition across the board.
By the 2021-2022 school year, Cornell Law School students can expect to shell out $79,800 and Yale Law School scholars aren't much better off, with an expected tuition of $76,300, according to charts Leichter posted at The Law School Tuition Bubble.
Check out just how much tuition is expected to leap at some of the top schools:
Put another, even more depressing way:

supply and demand - as far as I’m concerned, each semester of law school should cost $1,000,000,000,000.00
Good! The last thing we need is more lawyers.
Pricing themselves right out of the market.
We only need about 2 attorneys per 10000 humans.
It’s a crime that a degree is required at all to practice law, passing the bar exam should be sufficient.
And most of them will never practice law.
The “ranking” there is very odd. It lists several law schools like Seton Hall, etc. as “top schools” when they’re 3rd or 4th tier law schools by most rankings. At least graduates from the other schools in that chart have a decent chance of paying back those exorbitant loans. The better angle would have been to show that students at the lower tier schools pay the same inflated tuition but have far, far less of a shot at recouping their investment.
Law is pathetically simple. I can’t imagine justifying those rates for such limited information to learn.
Good. Less crooks.
The tuition needs to jump a zillion times higher.
How can I help?
“Its a crime that a degree is required at all to practice law, passing the bar exam should be sufficient.”
Believe it or not it is sufficient. Over the years, only a handful of folks have accomplished this near impossible task.
I agree...but I’ll go you one better....for each matriculating entrant that is male, they sacrifice their testicles by neutering; for each female - sterilization...
We cannot have this species self-propagating....
The truth is.... the last thing America needs right now is another lawyer..
We have way too many lawyers as it is..
Not to speak of the fact Law Schools are ALL socialist indoctrination centers..
Send a bright kid to Law School what you get back is a DRONE for the Socialist Hive..
LAw School lifts the word democracy to be sacred, holy..
When Democracy is a lie,, it is Mob Rule for mobsters..
Always was, its not NEW.. No democracy is democratic, NONE..
Democracy is indispensable to socialism. The goal of socialism is communism. -V.I. Lenin
The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism .-Karl Marx
I looked it up once and found that only California would allow it, all other states required a degree to become licensed. I imagine in other states you’d have to sue on constitutional grounds and win to be allowed to practice without a degree. Those here happy at how expensive it is aren’t thinking things through, the more difficult the process the further the reins of power get from the common man.
Q; Why do lawyers wear neckties..
A; To keep down the foreskin...
Q: What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 100?
A: Your Honor.
Q: What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 50
Thank you for the correction. I had been thinking it could be a State thing but didn’t do my homework.
Thank you for your time in your research. I will not forget the information you just shared with me.
Have a wonderful day.
“Those here happy at how expensive it is arent thinking things through, the more difficult the process the further the reins of power get from the common man.”
More knowledge into my head you just imparted.
With the FedGov in charge of student loans, the ones we get will probably end up working off their loans in gubment.
One can only hope and pray that the Lawyer Bubble will finally burst and never return.

On some level he was more than just correct.
Just look at those congresscrooks. Most of them are lawyers.
