This piece describes the difficult situation that legal education finds itself in. While law schools offer programs that are more enriching than ever, they do so at much higher costs than in previous decades. The resulting tuition increases have causes graduating students to become burdened with large debts. At the same time, their employment, particular for those at non-elite law schools, have become more problematic. The article provides ample statistics and examples to support these disturbing trends.
