Dialogue with an Affable Law School Dean, Part 1


Matt Leichter (matt [dot] leichter [at] gmail [dot] com) (Saitama-ken 2003-05) is a renegade attorney who plays by his own rules.  He operates a think tank of one, The Law School Tuition Bubble, where he archives, chronicles, and analyzes the rising cost and declining value of legal education in the United States.  He also maintains the “Bankruptcy Legal Topics,” and, “Bankruptcy Billables,” sections for Steven Horowitz’s Bankruptcy Bill.  For further reading regarding JETs and the law, he recommends JETs with J.D.s.

When you were on JET, did you ever have a refreshingly honest discussion about education with your kocho-sensei?  I just had something similar.  I received the distinct pleasure of discussing the state of legal education with the Devil’s advocate law school dean inhabiting my mind.  A shrewd sparring partner, he’s surprisingly honest and appears to enjoy mandarin oranges.  Find out why he doesn’t care that his law school isn’t transparent about its employment figures.
