From the ABA’s Debra Cassens Weiss:
“A law professor is calling for cheaper, practice-oriented law schools in an upcoming book that chronicles the oversupply of newly minted lawyers.
The book, by Brian Tamanaha, a law professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has some statistics to illustrate, the New York Times reports at its Opinionator blog. Law schools produce 45,000 new graduates each year, Tamanaha writes, but only 25,000 job openings are projected each year through 2018.”

Changes at the law school level are not going to solve the whole problem, however. Lawyers need to change themselves, too.
More to come!
