In the early 1970's, law schools expanded dramatically as more and more women enrolled. Millard Ruud, and later James White, ABA consultants on legal education, wrote about this phenomenon - and related job placement challenges - in a series of ABA Journal articles from 1972 to 1975. While the context is different - tuition, for one thing, has gone through the roof - these pieces remain interesting reading for those following the current crisis. Citations to, and selected excerpts from, The Burgeoning Law School Enrollment series are here.
