ABSTRACT
With law school applications in the U.S. up nearly 40 percent since 1998 and admissions up just by 13 percent, more than 40,000 applicants were turned away last year. Northbrook based Sterling Partners says it will open for profit law schools around the country after buying one in Florida in January. Sterling also faces the issue of whether the nation needs more lawyers and law school deans, like Northwestern University's David Van Zandt, believe there's already an oversupply of graduating students for the high paying jobs most hope to get.
