How Screwed is BigLaw? ATL counts the ways…

And explores some new business models.  Basically, BigLaw has to change…Big time.  What’s interesting about the discussion is that the same models that were used to bring associates better quality of life (which really means ANYTHING OUTSIDE THE OFFICE) are now being discussed as models that could save big firms from going under.  Interesting ideas and a lot of information about where the industry could be going.  Of course, its anybody’s guess where the industry actually ends up.  My question is-what about law school costs?  When are law schools going to change?  At this point, I think it’s hard to look at them and see anything other than a pyramid scheme…or a bullshit factory.  I guess law schools have been both for quite some time.
