Schrag on Tamanaha

MOVING TO FRONT FROM NOV. 28--SEE UPDATE

Philip Schrag (Georgetown) has written an interesting, substantive criticism of Tamanaha's Failing Law Schools, focusing, in particular, on what he argues is Tamanaha's misunderstanding of current debt repayment programs and their effects on credit-worthiness.

UPDATE:   Tamanaha has a useful response to Schrag here, conceding some points about the changes in loan repayment since his book and raising some additional concerns.  The conversation continues in the comments, with a sur-reply from Schrag and then a further response from Tamanaha.
