The flood of new law schools never ends!!

"The law school was originally scheduled to open in 2009, but an increase in the start-up costs from $4 million to $7 million delayed the planned opening..."

dear God, if all it takes to open a LS and send thousands of new kids into the traps of debt and poverty, I fear for this profession.

These new law schools are sucking the prestige right out of the degree and profession. If you aren't Princeton, MIT, Johns Hopkins, Brown, Rice, Tufts, Wellesley, GA. Tech, Purdue, Rensselaer Tech, Cal Tech, UC-San Diego, Spelman, Miami-Ohio, Davidson, or something akin to the stature(s) of those schools, you should not be opening a new law school. And we could close about 50 schools and not miss them, from Cooley to Golden Gate to John Marshall (ATL)...STOP!!!!!!!

This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with the profession. There are many good law schools, but we could stand to close a few. As far as race...you want to talk about racists, there are many white racists on this site. But you want to deflect away from that and call me a racist. All of you who say the LSAT measures "intelligence" are masking your racist feelings. And the anti-AA trolls are racist too. I disagree with AA as a concept, but I don't believe what the law schools are doing is AA.

Call me names if you want to. I have said many times that I am not going anywhere. I didn't come here to make friends; I came here to get in your ear, which I have obviously done. I am very happy right now that I get so much attention, and I am glad I am probably the most hated man (among the white TLSers) on this site. It means that I am doing my job, which is not to be nice to you, but to tell the absolute truth...whether you or anyone else likes it or not.

Secondly, I don't group ALL whites together. You are putting words in my mouth. What i am saying is what many white scholars themselves say. This country breed racism within the white society. And the problem is that whites don't accept that their skin color affords them privileges that people of color do not have. The typical middle-class white man wouldn't trade places with a rich black man. I know this because of a study done by Jonathan Kozol when he wrote Savage Inequalities. That is an admission that white people DO understand their skin color to be an advantage.

I'm sure that you realize that if we were to follow your idea of allowing only your aforementioned schools and closing down lower-tiered, ABA-accredited schools, you'd inevitably be closing off routes of opportunities for, but not exclusively, black Americans and other URMs who wouldn't be able to practice law at higher "ranked" schools. Just think about that and then think about who's really championing civil rights, between the both of us.
