A different take on the alleged "crisis" in legal education

From Professors Konfesky (Buffalo) and Sullivan (Loyola/Chicago).  (To be clear, there was an economic crisis which exacerbated an employment crisis for newly-minted lawyers, and there is a budgetary crisis at many law schools due to the steep decline in applications [as the first crisis has become well-known], and there is a student debt crisis for law students, but not only them; but none of these have been crises about legal education or one produced by the content of legal education, despite the endless confused cyber-ranting to the contrary.  My own views about some needed reforms in law schools are here, and some of those speak to actual crises and actual issues.)
