Congress investigates law schools

All Rights Reserved

According to the Tennesseean’s article Corporations add transparency; so can universities (02/15/2012). This makes sense. Law schools and other universities conduct themselves as for profit they should have all the regulations and accountability that goes with it. Employment statistics, true rankings, endowments, donations, investments and distribution of funding. The first paragraph of this article makes you mentally say an exclamatory *yes*:

The U.S. Senate is investigating law schools’ student data for accuracy, as evidence grows that public information released misrepresents the truth.

Hopefully, Congress will not address the legal industry like the housing market–lawsuits and settlements and restructure only for those affected since 2008 til present. These institutions of higher education have been gaming the system for decades.

    Fantastic. Hopefully, this is not the typical hearing for public consumption, i.e. “See? We are doing something about this mess.” Personally, I expect the senators to simply have their staff investigators issue a perfunctory report on the findings – and not much else will happen. I hope to be proven wrong, but this is what politicians do best.
