Did Some Law Schools Actually Shrink Enrollment?

Did Some Law Schools Actually Shrink Enrollment?

Legal jobs vanished. Fewer people applied to law schools. Some schools cut enrollment. There are too many lawyers.

For the JD-curious, Zac Bissonette repeats what can always use repeating:

My advice to would-be law students is this: Don't think that law school is a guarantee of anything, and only consider going if the career you are passionate about involves being a lawyer. Keep your ego out of it, and don't be seduced by the bright lights of a J.D. Finally, let your results on the LSAT influence your decision: If you aren't qualified to get into an elite law school, consider that it might not be the right career for you anyway.
