Above the Law: SMU Law Dean Knew About the Terrible Job Market in 2008


Dean John Attanasio


Above the Law has a story about how the Dean of the Law School, John Attanasio, called an emergency meeting to discuss the terrible job market for law students:

The legal job market has been so bad for so long that it hardly even feels like news when we get more information that stinks.

But the terrible legal economy apparently counted as “emergency” news to the students at SMU. At least, that’s how the dean sees it. Students report that Dean John B. Attanasio called an emergency meeting last week to update students about the job market. During the meeting, the dean revealed that he saw the terrible legal economy coming as far back as 2008.

Which makes you wonder why he didn’t call an emergency meeting back in 2008…
