The Costs of Legal Scholarship: $575M in Tuition and Grads Who Don’t Know How to Practice

    ABA Journal: The chances of obtaining a tenure-track job at a law school begin to diminish after eight or nine years of practice. And that is partly why law schools are not producing lawyers who are trained in legal practice, the New York Times reports. The story quotes an unidentified lawyer who is an adjunct professor. Law practice experience “can be fatal,” he says, “because the academy wants people who are not sullied by the practice of law.”

NJ hospital ignoring court order | OneNewsNow.com

    OneNewsNow.com: “These pro-life nurses should not be bullied into employment discrimination that is forbidden both by federal law and a court order,” Bowman contends. “The hospital is threatening to impose discriminatory ‘transfers’ or ‘changes’ in the employment conditions for these nurses because of their religious and moral objections to abortion. Such discrimination against pro-life nurses violates state and federal law, the court’s order in this case, and even the hospital’s own public statements saying that ‘no nurse must assist in procedures to which they object.’”

Analysis: Health care’s “sleeper issue”

    SCOTUSblog: This is one of a continuing series of articles the blog will publish over the next several weeks, explaining more fully the new federal health care law, and the Supreme Court’s review of the constitutionality of key parts of that law. This article deals with whether any challenger to the new law’s individual mandate should have been allowed in court to try to overturn the mandate and its attached penalty. That is an issue that potentially could postpone for at least four years a decision on the constitutionality of the mandate.
