You can make the bar harder, but school and the pre-school forms need to be harder as well, just to make sure they have no chance of getting in. Also, I will go to a Law School as the LSAT is a simple test. I was speaking with a friend online about it and she mentioned that her score was 166 and it was a little easy, but I should do better than her as I have more knowledge and studied more. I take her words over other peoples opinions as truth. You are certainly right though, I will never step foot into some cretin based law school like Cooley.
Having it harder for them to get into the school, decreases the market of lawyers, makes more prospective lawyers more favorable to firms. What do you not get? If the market for lawyers is too low, current lawyers will find it easy to land a job and earn a higher salary due to the decrease, and future lawyers have ease of mind for finding a job. It then makes law more prestigious and the act of going to law school more prestigious. This then allows law schools to raise the tuition rates allowing only the really smart students in, and the students who don't have enough fund either spend more time in school, find scholarships and/or loans, or simply choose a different profession. This is just my opinion on the matter. I don't really care about the money but the status of being a lawyer goes down due to the over abundance of students.
Jobs matter, but status matters more to me. Even law student is a status in an of itself. I would like it so there is hardly a snowballs chance in hell that a dumbass can be a lawyer or a student of law. Also, passing the bar does not make you a lawyer if you want to argue semantics now. You are only a lawyer if you pass the bar and advertise yourself as being ready for clients, i.e. opening a small practice hiring clients, or joining a firm hiring clients.
Adversaries who aren't idiots I would have no problem contending against. You, again, have failed to accurately comprehend such simple, straight-forward sentences.
