Does % of Part-Time Faculty matter?

Does % of Part-Time Faculty matter?

One of the stats that The Princeton Review tracks and some schools report is the number of percentage of their faculty that's only part-time.  Does this matter?  Do you think it's good, or bad? 

To me, you could look at it as though a lot of adjuncts mean that there's a lot of real world lawyers who can offer first-hand experience of law. Or, you could think that being taught by fewer *real* professors is a negative because you want people who are professional teachers and who more-than-likely know more about law and/or theory of law than adjuncts.
