A recent post at LawPrawfsBlog lets you drop in on an online discussion on the subject among law school professors, with provocative assertions/musings as this, from a commenter identified as "MacK":
My own sense of the situation is that for many graduates of law schools, and indeed most top 20 law school graduates of the last 10-15 years, they are no better off in terms of earnings than they would have been had they not gone to law school - and many are worse off.
Data, guys, data. Let's focus on facts, like lawyers are trained to do, and make sure our math is right.
Speaking of blogging anonymity (as we have just done here and here), let's pause for a moment to think on the pseudonymous "MacK." Can anyone think of a provocative law professor whose last name is suggested by that nom de blog? Is it even fair to speculate about who MacK might be? And what's to stop anyone from adopting a blog name suggesting that he or she is someone else? For that matter, was it appropriate for Paul Campos to blog anonymously as "Scamblogger?"
It's a not-so-brave new world.
