UI Wants To Expand Law School

University of Idaho administrators found themselves in a tough position Wednesday. They were lobbying for an additional chunk of state dollars – to graduate more lawyers. The U of I is seeking $400,000 to expand its Boise law school. The money would expand the satellite campus, now serving about 30 third-year law students, to serve 40 second-year students and 40 third-year students. Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee members couldn’t resist a few lawyer jokes. “I think by statute we can limit the number of lawyers in Idaho,” said Sen. Dan Schmidt, D-Moscow, a physician/Kevin Richert, IdahoEdNews. More here.

Question: Does anyone -- anyone! -- out there think that Idaho needs more lawyers? (Feel free to share your favorite lawyer joke, as long as it's clean.)
