I don't see any crisis, I see a ####roach bubble finally bursting. And the smartest kids are finally learning the lesson not to go through that door. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/10/25/opinion/sunday/the-law-school-debt-crisis.html?referer=

Of course some lawyers are needed, there's just far far too many in this country. We're in a league of our own in terms of lawyers per capita. It slows shít down & drives up costs.

Far too many in certain sectors. Far too few in others. Isn't this problem rooted in information asymmetry, though? Inflated prospects of jobs after law school and opaque job placement stats?

"This reality has contributed to the drastic drop in law school applications since 2011, which has in turn exacerbated the problem—to maintain enrollment numbers, law schools have had to lower their admissions standards"

Well, top law firms pay new associates $160,000/year fresh out of law school. And there used to be lots of jobs. Not so much anymore, of course. Law school enrollment eventually dropped, which is good.
