The American Bar Association thinks that the U.S. government should give law grads a bailout by letting them convert their private loans into government loans. (source)
The American Bar Association thinks that there is a crisis in the profession caused by too much debt.
Yes, the ABA — that festering slop bucket of do-nothing bozos who stamped their seal of approval on every head injury clinic that wanted to call itself a law school, as long as its faculty and administration dropped to their knees and fellated the ABA’s absurd “educational” requirements. The ABA, the same organization that gave accreditation to Liberty, Regent, and Ave Maria indoctrination centers for the developmentally disabled. Yes, that same ABA.
This is the same ABA that will not allow schools like the Massachusetts School of Law to bear the accreditation title because of outdated standards that have nothing to do with the quality of teaching at the school. Mass law is cheaper than most public law schools and churns out students who are taught by adjuncts — meaning people who have a goddamned clue how to practice law. The ABA prefers that professors have no connection to the actual practice of law, and does not count a professor as a full time faculty member if they maintain a practice. Because…. well, who would want to learn to do a thing from someone who actually does that thing?
This is the same ABA that said that there is nothing wrong with outsourcing legal work to the same boneheads in India who answer your customer service calls.
And now these ‘tards think that the problem is that law students have too much debt. Of course there is too much debt. I don’t disagree with that. However, what else do you expect when the ABA gives its blessing to any law school that can write its name or color within the lines, and then this blessing gives lawyer-hopefuls access to gobs of loaned cash? Its as if you had a loanshark standing outside every single casino in Las Vegas. The problem is that anyone with a pulse and a 140 LSAT score can get into Regent School of Law or the international association of imbeciles academy of legal studies, because the ABA gave those idiotic places their accreditation – -thus giving their students access to guaranteed loans which are… wait for it…. now biting them in the ass.
If you took out $200,000 in loans to attend the dope smoking academy of law, and now you can’t find a job, well I do feel for you. But for the ABA to point the finger anywhere but in the mirror requires a pair of balls that are so big and shiny that they would change the gravitational pull of the earth, while reflecting so much sunlight that it would set fire to your eyes if you gazed upon them.
I have a better idea.
How about we just disband the ABA? They must be the most worthless bunch of do-nothing abject imbeciles in the history of any trade association. I don’t even know what you need to do to run for president of the ABA. Do you actually need to be retarded? If that is not a requirement, I would like to run for president of the ABA on a platform of “once elected, I will disband this organization as the greatest epic failure in history.” A little over the top and hyperbolic, but it would be nice to finally rid this profession of this parasitic organization of idiots.
Anyone with me?
