PROFESSOR BAINBRIDGE ON LEGAL EDUCATION: “I think Deans like Rodriguez should put their administrative house in order first. At my school, and I’m sure at many others, the number of administrators, program directors, and other bureaucrats has increased dramatically. See Roland A. Cass & John H. Garvey, Law School Leviathan: Expanding Administrative Growth, 35 U. Tol. L. Rev. 37 (2003), which notes that the growth in the numbers of law school administrators has outpaced growth in those of faculty and students. Of course, the problem is not limited to law schools. . . . But that’s no excuse for law school deans like Rodriguez to ignore the problem of administrator bloat.”
