Hans Bader of the Competitive Enterprise Institute writes here about the high debt levels on average at many law schools. The top 20 schools in that regard range from $133,000 at Syracuse to $165,000 at John Marshall in Chicago. He is undoubtedly correct that many of the graduates of those law schools will have an extremely hard time paying off their loans. The losses will fall on family members and, naturally, the taxpayers.
