Illinois candidate “wants to shutter law schools”

The idea from the Green Party candidate for state treasurer has people talking. “[Candidate Scott] Summers would board up the windows at the law schools of both Northern Illinois and Southern Illinois Universities. Did we mention Summers graduated from NIU Law?” [Legal Blog Watch]


  • The only time that a fringe lunatic party has said something that makes sense.

  • Now if he proposed to shutter the Illinois state government, that would be a winning ticket!

  • I’d vote for that lunatic fringe party.

  • A good idea. The US doesn’t really need 70% of the world’s lawyers, does it? Not enough actual prey, they get hungry and start causing problems with stupid actions, just to eat.

  • This is why, after being a regular mior contributor to my law school (in Illinois!) for years, I have recently stopped giving.
