The solution is for the ABA to stop approving so many schools. Seriously, T3 and T4 schools are essentially worthless to the profession. I would say even most schools outside of the T6 probably are.
In the meantime, depressed law students will just have to get by on this:
what school do you go to loverofwomen? honestly i am tired of your idiotic spam posts on this website and i wish you would be removed for advertising porn on a discussion board. how in the hell do you expect a legal system to survive with 6 law schools providing lawyers?
I'm not "advertising" porn; the link just failed. There was a picture of a beautiful woman earlier. I apologize that there is no longer. Besides, it was topical--I pointed a means depressed law students could use to get by.
I said most schools outside of the T6 are worthless. The leaders in the profession are effectively these six schools. The other eight of the T14 are OK, but could use a boost in their standards.
Many graduates of T3/4 and even some T1/2 schools are unable to find work without graduating above a certain decile level. A lot aren't able to even pass the bar. This is in contrast to medicine, where even an average student at an unknown (but accredited) school can find good work.
The ABA should stop approving so many schools, as I said earlier, but it should also crack down on those which refuse to raise their standards. Honestly, if your school's bar passage rate is below, say, 90%, the school isn't doing it's job (recruiting and training effective lawyers) and should be denied ABA accreditation.
