When creating more lawyers is a good thing.

The University of Massachusetts is set to acquire a school. The states public university would be set to take over Southern New England Law School in Dartmouth with a sticker price of nothing. The law school is unaccredited and estimates vary on how much it will cost and how long it will take to reach accreditation, but I feel strong that this is a good thing. If we lower the cost of becoming a lawyer, we can lower the cost of hiring lawyers. With a lower financial hurdle to becoming a lawyer we will almost certainly gain more advocates for people without deep pockets. Massachuessetts stands to gain by this, both in terms of educational opportunities, and civil and criminal justice.
