I for one have been critical of those dumping on a law school education, and talking in terms of a shortage of law jobs. I do not necessarily believe it and I think the argument is greatly exaggerated.
Regardless, not all law schools act as your friend. Name, reputation, location, the campus, the quality of the teaching staff, bar passage rate and the like might all be important. But, nothing plays a bigger part in a new lawyer's problems than does the amount student loan debt. It can zap you of the opportunity to go out on your own and do the things in the practice of law you want to do.
Say what you want about student loan debt. There is one cause of it. It is sky high tuition. I have said for a long time that law schools that cannot or will not keep their costs and tuition under control disrespect their students.
So, who is disrespecting you. Like a ponzi scheme artist some operate only for their best interest and not your best interest.
According to U.S. News, these are the highest tuition public law schools in the country. Read them and weep.
