Precisely how will an over-regulated economy and poisonously litigious society benefit from an addition to the glut of lawyers? What's next, a fast-track one-year degree in medieval history?

Great. Everyone who has been through law school knows that the third year is a complete waste. Better, make it an undergraduate program as it is in the UK and Canada, and as it was in the US before WWII. Even better, a two year associate degree program in community colleges just like useful trades such as HVAC repair.
