About "ABA / Law Schools"
Affirmative plan tries to remove the ABA from setting standards for law school accreditation and get it out of the business of restricting the supply of law schools, leading to lower prices and wider availability of legal education. But outside experts (not associated with the ABA) say the real root causes are elsewhere.
The two biggest drivers of higher law school tuition are schools spending more to try to juice up their rankings on national rating lists of law schools, and declines in State funding for public law schools, which forces them to charge higher tuition to make up the difference. And this is a terrible time to be doing any kind of plan to expand the number of law school graduates and new lawyers. There’s already a massive glut of unemployed law school graduates with no use for their skills, who are already not-solving the high legal fees cited in the AFF plan.
The bottom line: Adding more unemployed lawyers to the backlog will solve nothing. This brief explains.
