Re: Clare Pastore

Clare Pastore was interviewed about how elite law schools push students onto a 'conveyor belt' to Big Law firms. "It certainly can appear to students that everyone is getting on that conveyor belt," she said. "And they think, 'I don't know what else is out there. I think I should get on, too.'"
