Are law schools producing too many lawyers William E Foster in his article entitled There Are Not Too Many Lawyers argues there are not Williams argument does have merit However his argument also exhibits some flaws that limit its ability to persuade the reader First the author seems to talk more about the value of lawyers and the many jobs lawyers endure during their law careers The argument starts off with the author disagreeing with critics of the present legal education environment beliefs that lawyers have become the whipping boys of the current legal employment crises in which many complain that the institutions are producing too many graduates with too much debt and with employment prospects that are too bleak but then the author switches gears and begins to talk about the many jobs lawyers obtain throughout their legal career like traffic ticket resolvers child custody facilitators and business dispute-mediators The author then goes on to discuss the valuable skills lawyers receive in law school the cost associated with retaining a lawyer and the affects these costs have on families and small businesses The second issue is that the statistical data the author provides is only for Kansas City the state where the author works The author provides no statistical data for other cities instead he incorporates humor to compare smaller cities like Kansas to bigger cities like Chicago stating chances are if you live in a city that doesnt sit on a coast or have icago in its name there are fewer than a handful of attorneys who can expertly navigate the acquisition on a mid-size operating business defend a Title VII employment action prosecute a patent or craft a charitable remainder trust The Authors data may be credible but it only takes in to account the amount of attorneys sworn in each year in Kansas The third issue is the structure of the argument The authors placement of references in footnotes
