Info

In Law Mart (2017), Riaz Tejani explores how for-profit law schools expose the limits of market-based solutions to inequalities in legal education and access to justice. Despite the many graduates with law degrees. There are few employment opportunities for lawyers while there is a high demand from the populace, in particular low-income communities, for access to the judicial system. For-profit law schools' number one mission is for growth to increase their market value. They do this by marketing themselves to be more inclusive by lowering admission standards, restructuring curriculum, and diversifying their make-up; conducted with profit in mind, this sets students up for potential failure. For students promised professional citizenship, is there a need for protections that better uphold institutional quality and sustainability? In Law Mart, Tejani queries the extent to which legal academic attachments to economic theories has influenced law school ethics, governance, and oversight.

Riaz Tejani is Assistant Professor of Legal Studies at University of Illinois Springfield. Dr. Tejani is a legal anthropologist with research and teaching interests in legal education, comparative law, finance and globalization, and race and ethnic studies. His current research uses ethnographic theory and methods to analyze contemporary changes in U.S. law school governance and organizational culture.
