Another interesting article on the Whittier debacle. Honestly, I feel for these students. That is a bitter pill to swallow, and must make the law school experience feel very hollow.

Thoughts-

1. Would that make a Whittier JD a collector's item?

2. My heart does go to the students and faculty- they didn't deserve it. I hope they have the unwinding properly planned.

3. That said, the best thing that can happen is a good retrenchment. There are too many law schools, and too few good students. It's a supply and demand issue, and the best cure would be a reduction in the number of ... less than great law schools.
