"Whittier Law School Dean Judith F. Daar told the students she disagrees with the closure and supports a lawsuit filed Tuesday to stop it."
The DJ also presents Whittier's closure not a total shock to law school experts, which noted that only 22% of the schools' first-time California bar exam takers passed the July 2016 test and less than 30% of its 2016 graduates secured permanent full-time legal jobs. Those 2016 graduates took out loans averaging nearly $180K.

The Recorder's story is Whittier Law School, Unable to 'Right-Size,' Will Close.
