Hey everyone, just a reminder that these pinned threads should mainly be used to share stats and your application status. Please keep longer discussions unrelated to this purpose to a separate thread.
Does it support that argument, though? Or is there a disappearing middle class generally in society, and the law school demographics merely reflect that? For articling students, I'd like to see data of # of articling students earning say minimum wage or less and those earning more, and I'd guess (just a guess) that there might be something of a trough shape, with fewer middle-income articling salaries, more at the high and low end? Bimodal, like what graphs of US attorney starting salaries are (a lot at low end, a small peak at high end, relatively flat/few jobs in between).
I would agree with this, it just wasn't the argument put forward. So far as I can tell, nobody in this thread has argued that increasing tuition is bad because it's hard on the middle class. The fact that the only argument supported by data hasn't been forwarded is a bit silly, if you ask me.
