A Really Bizarre Thing
July 14, 2007 - 6:19am



Is this altogether a bad idea? Wisconsin's State Assembly has voted to end all funding for the law school at the University of Wisconsin. Enough lawyers already. The state only kicks in ten percent of the school's funding as it is. Increase tuition. It's very low.

The governor calls it "a really bizarre thing that came out of nowhere," but it isn't. There are shortages of doctors, but there are clearly too many lawyers in this country. There are too many law schools. Wisconsin could be a pioneer in doing something about it.

In fact, as ABC News points out, "The plan appears to have little chance at surviving negotiations between the Assembly and the Democratic-controlled Senate and being included in the Legislature's final budget." So why not just make a statement? Shake things up a bit?
