In any event, one of National Jurist's magazines has named Ave Maria the best Catholic law school in America:
The rankings were based on the percentage and activity of students who belong to the faith; percentage and activity of faculty who belong to the faith; number of religion-focused courses and other ways the school incorporates the faith into the curricula; religion-related journals, centers and clinics; religious services and clergy at the law school; and the mission of the law school.
I wonder if Catholic University is feeling like rejected dumpster trash. It's chartered by the Pope for goodness sakes and named straight itself after the religion. Not even a saint or anything! The whole damn religion itself.
But cheers to Ave Maria! And never forget their greatest missionary work: moving from a cold, industrially-developed place to a tropical paradise full of godless heathens and prospective law students who couldn't quite get into Florida's more selective law schools.
Now please enjoy the beginning of my forthcoming law review article Blessed are the Debtors - Placing the "Law School Scam" in a Judeo-Christian, by Which I Mean Totally Christian, Context:
The New Testament is replete with Jesus and his first disciples echoing the virtues of penury. Indeed, Jesus bluntly dictates the strenuous battle the rich face to breach the glimmering gates of Heaven by comparing it to a camel passing through the eye of a needle. Yet, two millennia later, law school administrators face an irrational torrent of unfair and misdirected persecution for giving recent students the gift of poverty. Why are today's entitled brats so bitchy about being primed to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven? This article explores the psychological roots of such ungrateful angst and argues that whining law school alumni are the modern-day analog to those demon-possessed pigs in the gospels that ran straight to their deaths.
