Brian Tamanaha, author of Failing Law Schools, was an early voice warning of the crisis in legal education. He has responded to the Simkovic/McIntyre study which projected the lifetime value of a J.D. as $1,000,000 over a B.A. The discussion is discussed HERE by John Steele at Legal Ethics Forum. Frank Pasquale (former Seton Hall colleague of McIntyre - now at Maryland) responds that Tamanaha's `this time is different' critique fails.
