(Image credit:

Valparaiso Law School’s travails continue to generate more press. Some highlights from

— “Valparaiso administrators couldn’t even give this law school away as a gift.”

— “If there’s anything worse than having tens of thousands of dollars of law school debt hanging over your head, it’s having law school debt from a school that doesn’t exist anymore. For those students who choose to stick it out, we’d encourage them to hold onto their law degrees from the school, because they’ll be soon be collector’s items.”

— “There’s a lesson to be learned here for students: If you continuously hear negative things about your school, perhaps it’s time to get out, before it’s too late.”

    1. Imagine graduating from a university that is shutting down — in the legal profession, no less. Can you spell “podunk”? ROFLOL.

      1. Imagine being a supposedly blissful newlywed (well, going on #2), but instead spending your Saturday afternoon grinding axes on an obscure blog. Misery loves company! ROFLOL.

  1. Meanwhile, here’s a sample of Todd’s literacy . In a breatheless (sic) post (yup, that’s how he spells the title of his blog, no less) he writes “cause”. No Todd, the comma belongs INSIDE the quote mark. As the “Grammar Girl” points out: “… in American English we always put periods and commas inside quotation marks.”
    So let me get this straight: One is a small-town lawyer whose law school is shutting down. And the other is practically illiterate. Small towns are a hoot!
