The job market for new lawyers is extremely slim, and many of those that do find work out of law school are scraping by just enough to pay their loans. Jobs in decent firms heavily favor grads from established law programs, and it would be difficult to get a successful program off the ground.
Interesting article by NY Times on this topic. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/25/opinion/too-many-law-students-too-few-legal-jobs.html
We need to go all in on a medical school.[/quote]
Spot on. Our first question needs to be, should there be any more law schools anywhere right now? I read an article that made the case that there should be less. I think putting more resources into STEM programs or a Med school is the better path. I also think a Vet school would make a lot of sense, although it seems like an odd fit for the State’s only “Urban Research University”. We could buy some farm land in Cabarrus county and it would fill a real need for educating professionals in that field.[/quote]
Spot on post. Agree with all points here.[/quote]
