Crooked Law School Deans
Whatever happened to the Attorney General's student loan conflict of interest investigation? The WSJ law blog is reporting today that Dean Richard Matasar of the overpriced New York Law School diploma mill is also chairman of the board of directors at the subprime student loan lender Access Group. Should the dean of an institution that puts out distorted post-graduate career stats designed to entice young people to commit financial suicide really be on the board of directors of an out of control subprime higher education loan lender? Aren't these corrupt conflict of interests exactly the sort of thing that caused this financial crisis?
