The continued rise of non-JD enrollment in law schools

Usefully documented here.  The explanation for the rise is simple:  non-JD students (e.g., LLM students, but also, as in the case of Arizona, undergraduates taking courses taught by law faculty for an undergraduate law-related degree) generate tuition revenue, but are invisible to the masters of American legal education at  their numerical credentials don't show up, so it's all $$$ and no risk to ranking.   We're still waiting for the creative state AG who finds a way to nail US for its role in consumer fraud.
