Yeah, sure. We get that. Thing of it is, though:
"Seva Brodsky, was expelled after failing two courses in the spring of 2005, and later learned from medical testing that his "memory and organizational deficits"
likely stemmed from an accident in the early 1980s"http://abovethelaw.com/2009/05/brain-da ... t_sues.php
Memory and organizational deficits?!?!?! Which profession is he trying to join again? Do you know how many bar disciplinary actions may be reduced to memory and organization deficits? Most of them, actually. Competence (in that he did not have the requisite legal knowledge to handle the case- ABA model rule 1.1), diligence (in that he failed to act with promptness and diligence to the client’s needs- ABA model rule 1.3) and communication (in that he failed to keep the client reasonably informed about the statues of the matter- ABA model rule 1.4) are the three most common infractions by lawyers (Leslie Levin, The Ethical World of Solo and Small Law Firm Practitioners, 41 Hous. L. Rev. 309, 313 (2004)). Organizational and memory problems will make you a BAD LAWYER.
Nevermind that I seriously doubt he had a decent GPA or LSAT. Stories like this one are the reason we need to reduce the number of law schools out there
What about this story supports that?[/quote]
ahahahhaha. Seriously? We are at the point where there are so many shitty law schools that someone suffering from a sort of brain damage that significantly impedes critical skills needed for the job can still get in.
It'd be like if we had so many NFL teams that people with multiple sclerosis could get picked up.
Nevermind the fact that the guy obviously has a disability which necessarily prevents him from passing law school. In effect, that junky little school ripped him off for 1 year's tuition. He was never going to succeed and they should have known that based on what were probably AWFUL entrance numbers. I'm on his side here. I just wish there were a way for him to sue to recover his money. But there isn't...
AND to make matters worse, even if he HAD managed to graduate he'd be in a rough financial situation. The full time tuition is $38,500!!!!! Throw in housing and he could be graduating with $150,000 in debt. IF he gets a job after graduation, he will be lucky to earn $50k/year. I concede that the top 5 students or so (that is top 5 students, NOT top 5% of the class) probably have a shot at decent money. But this guy was clearly never going to be part of that group.[/quote]
I agree 100% on all points.[/quote]
I agree 100% with your agreement. If Suffolk grads are getting killed ITE, and they are, then it is a bloodbath for NESL.
