A reporter for the ABA Journal has contacted me for a story on uptick in transfer students. She has dug up a lot of information on this topic. Although she has heard a lot of rumors that some law schools directly solicit rising 1Ls from other law schools, at this point they are all rumors from lots of law school administrators.
If any reader has any concrete evidence of direct solicitation of transfer students, the reporter, Leslie Gordon, would love to hear from you. (It would be great if you would cc me, as I would love to see the evidence as well.) Thanks.
