Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Casualties of Caesar Bernie's Governance

Of course, it was inevitable. Like passengers fleeing a sinking ship, no less than 15 students have transferred from Ave Maria Law to escape Bernie Dobranski's tyrannical administration. It can safely be said that the number would be higher, were it not for the ABA's limitation on transfer credits. Though the students will indubitably be taught the law by faculties with lesser talent, they will assuredly be attending schools with better administration.

The transfer students are among the top of their class, and, based on law review announcements, it is evident that 5 of the transfers were new members of Ave Maria Law Review. Such a mass exodus of talented students is a loss to an institution that, were it not for Tom & Bernie, would be a first tier law school.

The current student body is not alone in suffering casualties. As a direct result of Bernie's contemptible termination of Charlie Rice, at least one member of the incoming class has written off his admission fee and told the school to forget his application. He would rather put his education on hold and seek admission elsewhere next year.
