Abstract:

"Three disillusioned and debt-ridden third-year law students attend a for-profit law school, perform menial tasks at sleazy law firms, and pull pints at the local pub. Admitting they've been duped and the school can't prepare them adequately to pass the bar, Mark, Todd, and Zola brazenly drop out, evade their debt, and change their names. Functioning as licensed lawyers, they open an office, learn the lingo and modus operandi for hustling dried-out drunks and personal injury claims, counsel clients, and collect their fee. To punish the school's deceitful tactics, the trio devise a sinister plot to expose the hedge-fund owner of eight exploitative for-profit law schools and numerous banks specializing in student loans. Since the unauthorized practice of law is a minor offense, their nonreportable and tax-free earnings ease their guilt for preying on folks needing legal help-until cases become too legally complex and debt collectors become unavoidable."--Library Journal.
