Are the embodiment of a TTT or TTTT success story? Are you shocked by the sense of entitlement and lack of personal responsibility among recent graduates. Are you a struggling new JD looking for ideas?

The poster sounds like a blue-skies benevolent universe-premise, meritocracy, free market dogmatist-type moron. As a rebuttal, here's the text of one of my earlier blog posts. "Is Having a Sense of Entitlement Necessarily Unfounded"

http://flustercucked.blogspot.com/2010/04/is-having-sense-of-entitlement.html

"I disagree that it is wrong that “Many law students and new lawyers feel entitled to a high paying, high quality job because they went to law school.” If you spent 7 years in college, busted your ass, paid a large opportunity cost, and accumulated $120,000+ worth of non-dischargeable student loan debt, shouldn’t you feel entitled to a reasonable return on your investment if you did a good job of training and preparing yourself to work as a lawyer? I encourage disenchanted law school graduates who graduated with 3.0’s and above to feel angry, cheated, and entitled. It is perfectly understandable and proper to feel that way.

If you are a law student or an unemployed or underemployed lawyer, please stop flagellating yourself and feeling guilty for having been misled after you had been indoctrinated with propaganda selling the value of higher education since childhood. The state of our nation’s economy and our nation’s Education Arms Race are not your fault. You made an effort to train to earn a living by going to college and graduating from law school. Grow a backbone and a sense of righteous, moral outrage. We are never going to be able to make student loans dischargeable in bankruptcy nor close excess law schools until we seize the moral high ground."

Well, congratulations, you are advocating societal collapse and that's exactly what we are on the road to.

What do you think has happened the other ten thousand times a civilization mortgaged the future of its youth? It just does not work. Anytime you concentrate wealth and power in a minority, and especially when you remove opportunities for youth on a widespread basis, your civilization is very near to its downfall.

About the only ways to keep that type of society going (longer) is through tyranny or brainwashing. As the middle east is showing, eventually even that fails. Hence why we tried to hide our brainwashing and deceit with a facade of democracy.

"You can't seize the moral high ground. You are arguing to restrict supply to drive your own salaries up. Many if not most of you rolled the dice thinking you would make bank and when that didn't happen want to weasle out of your commitments."

I'm arguing to restrict supply, not necessarily to drive salaries up, but rather to increase the percentage of JDs who can earn at minimum solid middle class incomes as lawyers. Much of what people are complaining about on this forum is not that lawyers are earning only a measly $50,000/year, but rather that a great many are either unemployed or underemployed-and-completely-out-of-field. Law is also an extremely miserable field as a result of the JD glut.

The other reason for reducing the number of law schools is so that production (of the supply) more closely matches the real-world demand. Likewise, I also think we should reduce the number of people who go to college. How does our society benefit from wasting gigantic amounts of time and money training people for jobs that don't exist? How does having millions of angry, indebted underemployed college graduates benefit our society?

A big part of the problem is that college education is almost completely independent of market forces. If we could make all student loans fully or mostly dischargeable in bankruptcy with schools having to pick up some of the tab for defaults, we could restore market forces to higher education.

I and other opponents of the law school and higher education scam can seize the moral high ground by both advocating a sensible economic policy and a solution to end the humanitarian crisis afflicting many college graduates.

I tried reading the "International Law" thread. Skimmed it.

http://qfora.com/jdu/thread.php?threadId=17744

TLS is just a bunch of I.R. Baboons vs. The World.

In other words, Epic Fail.

I just laughed my ass of at this:

'If you're interested in international arbitration or international trade, look at the DC and London offices of big firms like Skadden, Cleary, Covington, Crowell & Moring, Allen & Overy, Freshfields, Linklaters, Latham & Watkins, Arnold & Porter, WilmerHale, Debevoise, King & Spalding, Hogan Lovells, Shearman & Sterling, Hughes Hubbard, Sidley Austin, etc.

There are also NGO and government positions (e.g., ICC Office of the Prosecutor, State Department attorney-advisor, Human Rights Watch), although those jobs are exceedingly hard to get."

------------------------------------------

Sure. Because, as everyone knows, you can just walk right into any one of those firms after law school and start working in "International Law".

Reality: +1
TLS: -10,000,000

Reality wins yet again.

MalletOfMalice (Jun 6, 2011 - 4:35 pm)

Yeah this is just silly. It's obvious that the majority of TTT grads aren't doing well in this economy.

Basically, the scamblogs are just reporting what's happening to the majority.

Whereas focusing on success of a small minority is simply gloating and acting like a d-bag.

TTTheaven (Jun 6, 2011 - 6:19 pm)

Regular posters know that I do not regret going to law school and actually enjoy being a lawyer. Some scambloggers (cough Nando cough) might classify me as an apologist or a shill.

But really, young and rich JD is fucking stupid. If you bothered to do a little research before having an orgasm and posting about Carson Block, you would realize there is reason to believe he is a shady character who is attempting to short companies for pecuniary gain and that his law degree most likely had nothing to do with his success. If nothing else, he appears to have connections, something most TTT grads do not have.

"Carson Block has no experience listed with any other research firm besides his father’s WAB Capital, which again is run out of a home in Los Angeles. The fact that Carson claims he went to law school and now owns a storage facility in China, leads this author to believe that Carson Block could not have accumulated enough experience in the realm of securities research to be writing such reports. The fact that his father is the owner of WAB Capital, which Carson Block claims represents his “experience,” is menacingly convenient as well."

The article goes into much more detail.

http://seekingalpha.com/article/219172-orient-paper-and-the-unfortunate-shady-corners-of-wall-street.

Also, that other cute story you have about a TTT grad going into PI work and recently buying a used beamer is equally fucking ridiculous. Anyone can buy a beamer, particularly if it's on credit. That's not a sign of success by any reasonable measure.

People can be successful in this profession. But it takes hard work, dedication, and usually a little luck. Why don't you profile Steve Young next and claim his success directly resulted from him going to law school and had nothing to do with external factors, like being a Hall of Fame quarterback.

Even if an attorney were a "young and rich jd" why would he or she support this stupid blog? So more lemmings can go to law school, steal my clients, and I can become an old and poor jd? No lawyer profits from more law schools - except of course law school deans.

...well, maybe the big firms profit from class action lawyers, or guys who land mega PI cases. But most don't.

I think this blog is probably some kind of satire. A "used bmw"? A day trader? HOW PRE-DIGGISS!!!

Poor writing? How so? Whatever, this is a blog, not a legal writing class, which I got an A- at my TTT by the way. Anyway my writing was good enough to get me TTT honors, good enough to get me into big law, and good enough to get me rich! So hate on that.

And I tend to stay on topic, on point, focused like a laser. Hardly anyone ever attacks me on the issues. It's always childish stuff, like gay slurs, etc. And by the way, what planet are you people from where you think it is a good idea to attack someone as gay? Seriously, I doubt anyone who would do that would even be qualified to work as an assistant fast food manager. It's certainly not the attitude one would find in big law.

My blog, http://youngandrichjd.blogspot.com/ will last until it is no longer needed. That is until all of the "scamblogs" have gone the way of Shilling Me Softly. That blog died just a couple weeks after my blog came on the scene and shamed them into oblivion.

And to answer the questions, I am not any other user. It's somewhat self-centered to think that its only one or two guys out there who disagree with you under different names. Judging by the poll on my blog MOST people actually disagree with the scambloggers.

At the top of his blog, it says:
"An investment in law school is one of the best investments you can make. Not only is it enlightening, it has a high probability of making you financially independent."

That's all that needs to be said about the credibility (or rather lack thereof) of his blog. The blog only makes sense if taken as theonion type satire otherwise the whole premise summed up above is patently absurd on its face. Even the worse of the TTTT law schools would not dare state something so blantanly ridiculous so explicitly.
