Was that place ever really there to begin with? The school had to be the biggest joke I've ever seen. Even their website was badly configured despite the sleek look and l'm no web designer or IT pro.

I assure it was there, it took people's money and gave them nothing, and a few people I knew during my time "advising" local undergrads about LS ended up there, despite my best efforts to tell them not to go

"but it's the one place I got into, and I have to go to law school this year!!! because [insert sob story / "momentum" / parents / other craziness]... no you don't... but I can't make you understand that

I really didn't care about the ones who had rich parents or were on drugs or both (there was at least one example of each), but the ones who didn't fall into these categories I felt sorry for... but there is nothing you can do

I dunno how things turned out... people don't like people who "crush their dreams"... also you can't fix stupid... so we didn't really keep in touch

so happy

good riddance to bad rubbish

would be even happier to see civil and criminal charges brought against the people who ran it and the ones who continue to run scam schools

one down at least a hundred more to go

Eight schools have closed over the past four years. There are four schools currently on the drawing board; fortunately, they don't seem to going anywhere.

American College of Law - open 1971, closed 2013
Inland Valley University College of Law - open 2003, closed 2013
California Midland School of Law - open 2006, closed 2013
Lorenzo Patino School of Law - open 1983, closed 2013

All of these were in California, and no, I've never heard of them either, until now.

Well California has those crazy state accredited storefront law schools.

Yeah that's true. They seem to be about as ubiquitous as Subway franchises in California. Peoples College of Law certainly is a storefront law school if I ever saw one but at least their tuition is only $ 4600 a year, so you can't ruin yourself too badly going there. But given their abysmal bar passage rate and the fact that it is only accredited by California, so you can't sit for the bar in another state, I think, why bother trying to have such a school? That space would be better used as an auto shop or something.

Could a few of us band together, travel to the Golden State, and start Juris Doctor Underground School of Law?

You need a fancier name to attract students in SF. Maybe Tenderloin School of Law or Alcatraz Law.

I think I'm going to apply for LS teaching gigs, hoping the schools wait to implode so I have less competition.
