He called their fears “of being unable to land a job . . . and that law school had not prepared them to make a living” as a lawyer “realistic.”

    “The academy — both in terms of its preparation of law students to enter the profession and the type of scholarship being produced by the professoriate — has lost its practical moorings,” Newton wrote.

    It is a common refrain,these days,that something is terribly wrong with law schools.Critics charge that tuition is too high and students are graduating with unmanageable debt.When considering a particular law school,a prospective law student should find out what percentage of recent graduates of that school landed permanent full-time jobs as lawyers.
