Wow! 200 + law schools, one "new blood" for every three schools. Panicked old people holding on to positions because they "fear the dark" and have nothing else to do. Only a meager handful of new people coming in with new ideas, methods and orientations because the middle and upper ranks of the law school professoriate are stuck in place and dominating the shrinking spaces. This will have a serious impact on the energy, creativity and innovativeness of law schools at the very time they need new and exciting adaptive "players".
