You go to law school to get a job, and this is going to open up every opportunity for them. I'm so happy for them and pleased for them."

Isn't texas also flooded with unemployed lawyers like other big markets. Sure, there is a oil boom, but thre are a lot more lawyers coming here to find jobs. I heard that even midlaws in Texas can get tons of HYS law graduates to apply

UNT isn't helping anyone here, this is just another vanity project. Just like TAMU's law school.

If memory serves, UNT was strong at other things, like their music program. Like, you could actually have a career in music with a UNT degree. Play to strength, don't dive into something else just because it's trendy.

I've taught at two start-up law schools, both of which had much stronger indicators for their entering classes. Students who attend unaccredited law schools, which is required for all new law schools under ABA accreditation rules, are risk takers. They perform better on the bar exam given their personality types. Unless UNT significantly increases the quality of their entering class or changes their program of legal education, expect the bar exam scores to go down. They are in trouble.
