    I immediately thought of one of my favorite professors at Lamar, who earned her JSD/SJD at GGU Law.

    Yeah, poor old Golden Gate Law. Look at their tuition rate, $150,000, Bar pass 44%, and employment score of 39. All this according to Law School Transparency. They've been put on ABA probation in the past I think. All this and they sell

    (Con't) LLM and SJD degrees too. Right now they're doing everything they can to attract students and stay alive.

    Golden Gate is NOT a terrible law school. They are just in a very competitive market and they are not doing as well there as might be wished. .

    um. Shouldn't have said "sell". GGU Law is not any kind of mill and never has been. Apologies all around.

    First time Bar pass rate in July 2021 was 38%. They're not succeeding where they need to succeed in order to stay open. Western State was next lowest at 49%. Three California law schools have recently given up ABA accreditation or closed altogether from this cause being Laverne, Thomas Jefferson, and the now defunct Whittier.

    If someone attended Whittier and passed the California bar, does the school closure still affect them?

    Two other Bay area schools closed some years ago. There was the remarkable CalBar and regionally accredited New College of California in San Francisco and the unaccredited resident East Bay Law School in Oakland. As I say, it's a competitive market.

    New College is a story worthy of a short book. The school didn't collapse as a result of lack of students or even lack of revenue potential. It failed exactly and precisely from mis-management.
