This analytic research paper seeks to address the issues which have recently plagued failing legal education institutions in the United States. Law schools do not have enough students enrolling to maintain sustainability and newly graduated lawyers are confronting a job legal job market which has hit a 30 year low. Of the many factors that have contributed to the drop off in students as well as employment, unsustainable business models represent the most damming of these factors. Furthermore a great display of greed from the sides of both parties further solidified these models. Other issues such as the fall of big law and the numerous pending lawsuits that have been filed by alumni groups against former institutions are also addressed. Finally a relation is made between the failing legal education system and higher education as a whole.
