As Enrollments Remain Low, At Least One Law School Is Closing Its Doors.

There are too many law schools in the USofA today. They are taking too many students, and charging too much money, to too many people who will never be able to payoff their law school debt with money earned in the legal profession. In the wake of the White House’s crackdown on for-profit colleges, I’m curious to see if we might see the discussion turn towards law schools in the near future.

C) All this shrinkage means law schools are competing for students that they would never even have thought about before. Inside Higher Ed

D) Top law firms organized by law school pedigree. If you’re into biglaw, it’s pretty interesting. If you’re into categorized words and numbers, it’s even more interesting. Above The Law

E) SpaceX’s booster crash is like a real life Michael Bay movie. And Elon Musk has a pretty good sense of humor about it. Slate
