Matt Breunig is a progressive who has recently completed law school and in this piece he makes a sound argument against the strictly regulated entrance requirements for the legal profession, in particular the law school mandate.

Remarkably, Breunig grasps that regulation of entry does not lead to higher quality practitioners, but merely drives up costs. Maybe he’ll eventually figure out that most governmental regulations serves purposes other than those they’re supposed to.

He also understands that some prominent leftists (such as law school deans) are profiting handsomely from a system that is detrimental to the poor.
