Law school privatization, again

Brian Leiter posts National Jurist data on law school tuition hikes. Unsurprisingly, state schools are at the front of the pack as they struggle with declining support from state government.

In lieu of public funding, some of these law schools are aggressively supplementing tuition revenue with private funds. Wings&Vodka describes what this means.

i dunno...if privatizing the law school means that people in my jurisdiction class can get seats, the classroom itself would have enough outlets for everyone's computers, there'd be more than four bathrooms for the entire student body, we could hire more professors so 2Ls are not shut out of important classes, the snackbar would have another microwave so people don't have to wait 20 minutes to heat up their meals, we'd have a snackbar whose cooking capacity extends beyond an electric griddle, and tenured professors don't have to have offices that are virtually impossible to find, then i say bring on the firm dollars.

You don't happen to be a Michigan student, do you?
