Provocative new blog: "Inside the Law School Scam"

Folks, you probably already have heard about this, and it's not Civil Procedure-specific, but I have to share it anyway.  An anonymous tenured law professor at a "tier one" law school has started a blog called "Inside the Law School Scam."  His first post, "Welcome to My Nightmare," asserts that law professors are scamming their students.  Another post about law school teaching says, "This is how much preparation I’m doing this summer for the classes I’ll teach this coming academic year: None."  And he asserts that each law review article costs the law school between $25,000 to $100,000, with no discernable benefit to the institution or society. 

Love it or hate it, you've got to read it. 

Hat tip to the ABA Journal.

The cost of the law journal articles actually comes from Richard Neumann, at Hoffstra. It was published in the National Law Journal this April: http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNLJ.jsp?id=1202490888822&Legal_scholarship_carries_a_high_price_tag&slreturn=1&hbxlogin=1
