    Hear, hear! I believe the current paradigm which informs the predominant trajectory for law students is riddled with unnecessary expenditures, courses, and coursework that serve the student to no end except to increase excuses for the school to turn profit and induce debt on the part of the customer (student). If law programs could be streamlined and distilled down to the rarest and most important components, law school would cheaper, schools could hire more seasoned and worthy professors, and perhaps even offer more scholarships to well deserving, economically challenged. The prevailing model is all about keeping up with the Joneses, increasing brand visibility so as to arouse interest in the product, and dragging out academic career paths for as long as possible, so as to make as much profit off of each individual. Ultimately, the student suffers and (in turn) society.
