In an unprecedented move, Georgetown Law will become the first American law school to pass the one million student mark for the 2013-2014 school year. At a time when most law schools in America are making cuts to their classes, Georgetown’s highest administrators announced today that they are taking the opposite direction.
“We feel that America needs more Georgetown lawyers,” said Dean William Treanor, when asked for comment. “We are aware of that current employment prospects are rather dim, but we don’t see that lasting for very long,” Treanor continued. Georgetown has been criticized in the past for its extremely large class sizes in light of the current economy.
The decision to expand the class size by roughly 200,000 percent came as a surprise to many. “I don’t agree with class sizes any larger than 900,000,” opined Dean of Admissions Andrew Cornblatt. “This seems excessive to me, as I have always felt that a more reasonable class size of 500,000 students would keep Georgetown competitive. I disagree fundamentally with Bill on this.”
When asked for their opinions, several students had such comments as “I don’t know who you are,” and “Get away from me, 1L.” Clearly, public opinion is against such a dramatic move.
