'Cultural cachet' of a JD is one reason students go to law school, law prof says

'Cultural cachet' of a JD is one reason students go to law school, law prof says.  I'm not sure how much "cultural cache" a JD has.  That doesn't go a long way when there is a dearth of jobs.  There are too many law schools and too many law school graduates.  Likewise, law schools largely do a horrible job of getting their graduates jobs.  Law schools are university profit centers so universities have no economic incentive to trim class sizes.  Quite the contrary, they have every incentive to make law schools larger with little regard to the "debt bubble."  Now what does that sound like?
