Bloomberg Law graphic showing the high cost, low return of a JD

Nothing in this video report is news to anyone with even passing knowledge of the law school "crisis" though the graphic employed by Bloomberg Law drives home the point especially well.  The data, which shows law school tuition has increased 1000% since 1985 while average salaries have been in decline since 2009, is based on the work of Professor Jerry Organ (St. Thomas) and his forthcoming article Reflections on the Decreasing Affordability of Legal Education which is available here on SSRN.
