Boalt's Law School Dean had to resign for "alleged" sexual misconduct his B.A. from Oxford and J.D. from Harvard does not guarantee anything and this could all be a false accusation from a  disgruntled employee or real, but this is just an example to those in the law school bubble who have all these feelings about rankings, etc that once your in the real world, real sh*t happens and success is based far more on "you" than your school.

I'm struggling to grasp HOW you feel THAT and the value of the rankings are linked.............

to my knowledge they have never awarded points for "likelihood of campus rape"

It is just to say that someone who attends Harvard can be disciplined the same as someone that attends a non-aba school. From my interaction with law students stuck in the bubble they think that if you attend a "top tier" school problems don't happen, but in the real world sh*t happens.

The real point is to simply use common sense etc, because I know many law students get wrapped up in the rankings and fail to do so. That is all.

Again, that is NOT what the article has ANYTHING to do with.
It speaks to the flaw (non academic) of some STAFF of the school, but in NO WAY speaks of the equal value of students of other schools
