In an article in today's Business Insider blog entitled Law School Ridiculed For Opening In The Middle Of History's Worst Law School Crisis, Professor Paul Campos takes to task the Dean of Indiana Tech Law School for starting a new school, which will be Indiana's fifth, at a time when the job market for new grads is abysmal. But it was the following quote, though, that really provoked the Dean's ire:
"Chutzpah has been defined as murdering your parents and then pleading for mercy because you're an orphan," Campos wrote. "How about setting up another legal diploma mill in a hyper-saturated market, while claiming that what will set your school apart is its emphasis on 'ethics' and 'professionalism'?"
