Man paid $867,000 to run fourth-tier law school says law school is a good investment
Not An Onion Story:
nearly $800,000 per year $867,000 per year to run a law school with these outcomes
for its graduates. (Just found the 2011 IRS Form 990 for NESL. I
apologize to Dean O'Brien for seriously understating what he earned last
year for his charitable endeavors).
But others view [Brian Tamanaha's Failing Law Schools] as just the latest overly dire prediction about the fate of law graduates and misplaced finger-pointing over tuition costs.O'Brien currently heads the ABA's Council of the Section of Legal Education, whose regulatory mission is to decide whether it's a good idea for John O'Brien to get paid
"Most people in the profession were already concerned about what it costs to get a law degree," said John O'Brien, dean of the New England School of Law and chairman of the ABA's Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar. "Nobody feels good that tuitions have gone up. But the claim that a law degree is a bad investment doesn't hold water."
