Paul Campos is a joke if he is so adamantly against legal education why does he collect checks from the University of Colorado Law School? The man is the classic example of someone without a clue ,he has absolutely no real world legal experience, and has been paid to be a professor his entire career. However, all he does is complain about how unfair legal education is. As a final point to prove his hypocrisy University of Colorado where he teaches is offering scholarships to URM students.

Paul Campos is a joke and a disgrace to the legal profession. If he didn't work for a law school I would have some respect for him, but you cannot criticize law schools for their high tuition rates and then be on the law schools payroll. 

Maybe one day Paul Campos will get out of his Ivory Tower and actually practice law, if he ever does that then he maybe he would be worth listening to. However, if he actually went into the real world he wouldn't dare put his name to half of this stuff as he would be berated by members of the legal profession.

Bottom line you cannot expect your criticisms of an institution to be taken seriously if you are on the payroll of the institution you are criticizing. Maybe one day Mr. Campos will grow a pair and go into the real world, but since he has never done it and been in his ivory tower for 20 years I find it very unlikely.

One person can't change a policy at a law school each faculty member only gets one vote.

Campos is valuable because he speaks the truth. He lets everyone know about the law school scam, such as the fact that your law school GGU has one of the worst placement records of all law schools (21% placement score on LST). You should be warning people about Golden Gate not criticizing Campos.
