Its eventually going to result in the dilution of the entire legal field such that it isn't a individual problem, but rather a systemic problem. I think you could easily argue that part of the reason the legal field is getting hit so hard right now from top to bottom is the saturation of the legal market. That saturation is a direct result of this poor reporting. It gives potential law students an overly optimistic view of their career options. Would there be a clearer picture, from top to bottom, the demand for a legal education would abate.
Besides, regulation that provides for punitive recourse isn't necessarily big government. It could easily mean the giving private actors self-help remedies.
You clearly don't understand what a direct result is.
Maybe not. But please explain your point.
1. The level of transparency in the legal field today is unprecedented. While there is certainly damning information that we're not privy to, there is more than enough data available that anyone making an uninformed choice about their law school is making that bad choice because of willful ignorance.
2. We don't end up with 45k lawyers a year because of dicey reporting. We end up with them because we live in a society that glorifies professionals and pumps out countless liberal arts grads with no vocational training each year.
