‘Accreditation Reform Unlikely to Change Legal Education’ on the Am Law Daily

Accreditation Reform Unlikely to Change Legal Education

I chose not to comment on the renewed attack on law professors’ scholarship in The New York Times as it wasn’t germane to my article. Sure, a few statements from judges and lawyers isn’t a scientific analysis of journal articles’ value, but as I see it, the law of diminishing returns should tell us that adding 30%+ more full-time, non-clinical, journal-article-writing instructors to law schools over 15 years can’t really add much social utility if the graduates can’t get jobs.

So… How many people are dressing up as Sister Ray for Halloween?





  1. I’m Going as Keith Hernandez this year. Back when he played, he never let Boston win a series. I have been suffering a law of diminishing returns with the New York Mets since 1986.

    1. That, sir, is truly inspired.

      My favorite Mets moment was in the fall of 2009. I was at the laundromat across the street, and—I forget whom they were playing—it was the bottom of the ninth and the Mets were down by one, man on 1st and 2nd, no outs.

      Returning home, I found they’d lost within seconds. Somehow they’d managed to hit into a triple play.

      Hapless, but I love ’em.
