But tensions between the school's warring factionsthe Quants, Poets and Bog Dwellersimperil her plans. So, too, in this rollicking satire do the errant pursuits of her faculty and the maneuverings of a mail room clerk with a business plan of his own to radically transform the school.
The arrival of an outside committee to conduct the law school's required seven-year accreditation review threatens to expose the school's deepest secrets and forces the dean to confront her own darkest demons. A romp through the legal academy, Legal Asylum asks the hardest question facing higher education in America today: Can a school make it into the exalted realm of the U.S. News Top 5 and lose its accreditation, all in the same year?
