Abstract

This essay is devoted to the proposition that conditions are ideal for most law schools to be governed for the benefit of the faculty at the expense of the welfare of students and others (stakeholders) who expect to be served by the law school. If this practice is sufficiently broad that it becomes a component of the institution's norms, two concepts from administrative law become relevant. One is self-regulation and the other is capture. The analysis is presented in four steps.

Keywords: Capture, ethics, legal education
