To Repeat: There is no oversupply of lawyers according to Case Western Law Dean
Then why is Case Western's Employment Score as tabulated by Law School Transparency only 46.3% with an Under-Employment Score of 37.8%? Case Western Dean Lawrence Mitchell follows up his Nov. 28, 2012 NYT think piece, Law School Is Worth the Money, with the below Bloomberg Law interview. [JH]
It's not that there is an over supply of attorneys per se - the problem is that there are attorneys who become licensed but don't know how to practice law; they don't know how to conduct proper legal research (didn't learn it in school), don't know how to conduct themselves in court (didn't learn that in school, either), and many of them are opportunistic in that they take people's money and then don't do the job.
