If you peruse the Internet, you can practically hear their cries -- the plaintive voices of unemployed law school graduates. The Jobless Juris Doctor gripes, "Keep my diploma in the bathroom in case I run out of toilet paper." And in a post: "In case anyone was wondering, the job market still sucks."
And Scammed Hard oozes bitterly, beyond sarcasm: "So here's to all of the lies, nonsense and hogwash that will delude and mislead the next crop of 45,000 law students who will be matriculating this fall."
It's becoming a mini-epidemic: Disgruntled recent law school graduates or current students complaining, sometimes with venom, on so-called scamblogs.
