NALP’s Fuzzy Definition of ‘JD Advantage’…

…Is largely the same as the ABA’s, but that’s not the point, which is that you should read:

NALP’s Fuzzy Definition of ‘JD Advantage’

on The American Lawyer. It’s probably the first time I’ve written on this curious topic.

I don’t have any music for you as I’m beating a virus today that’s hampering my productivity. Since my organs haven’t liquified yet, I’m ruling out Ebola.

Peace.

This band’s interesting story is the subject of a documentary titled, A Band Called Death, that’s on Netflix.

On the Am Law Daily: ‘ABA Task Force Report: Part Good, Part Baffling’

You can find my latest Am Law Daily article here:

ABA Task Force Report: Part Good, Part Baffling

Per the discussion on my first cut at the topic, I added a little bit more on the possibility of limited-licensing programs reducing costs. There’re other changes to the original post.

Internet Era Has Neglible Effect on Legal Sector Productivity

…Is an unusual finding I made a while back, and it’s a reason not to go to law school. You can read about it on my most recent Am Law Daily article:

No, It’s Still Not a Good Time to Apply to Law School

In the meantime, I saw the Breeders last week, the night before my lecture at The Henry George School of Social Science, which went well thanks for asking. The Breeders are probably the only early ’90s band I’ve had any real interest in seeing. (The Pixies were a bit before my time.)

I was standing probably 20 feet east by southeast of the bootlegger of this video. I was behind a tall young man wearing a bright orange tuque, indoors. I think people who do that should be arrested and given the indelible mark of the hipster.

The best part of the video is that it’s titled “Canonball,” meaning it complies with Church doctrine.

‘White Flight’ Hits Nation’s Law Schools

…Is up on The Am Law Daily.

It’s pretty stark stuff, perfectly timed for a holiday in which white Americans play a leading part.

[Forgot to mention, The Law School Tuition Bubble has been nominated as one of the ABA Journal's "Blawg 100." Here's its description:

"New York City-based JD and writer Matt Leichter combats rhetoric about the cost-benefit analysis of a legal education—particularly for those who have to borrow vast sums of money for school—with research, which he archives. Leichter devours enrollment data and employment data, finds what's interesting and lays it out. He also finds other news articles and op-eds on his chosen topic, links to them and picks them apart."

If you are so inclined, the link for voting is here.]

Here’s some West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band.

Fun fact, the Wikipedia says vocalist Bob Markley was a law school graduate. Of course this was before 1960 and he was the adopted son of a wealthy oil man.
