UPDATE 2/20/14: Thanks for your comments and suggestions! There are some great ideas here.
Before I get into this post, I want to say thank you to the readers, commenters, contributors, and supporters of OTLSS. This blog, and others like it, would not be effective without your input and your word of mouth, be it in support of our message or as words of constructive criticism. As our web count increases and the law school applicants decrease, it would seem that our message is getting out there to the marketplace of ideas.
That being said, we have looked into "advertising" our message as well to increase our readership, yet unfortunately that has been much less successful. Number one, as a collection of bloggers, we do not have the operating capital to run advertising campaigns (and, to that end, some would say "hurrah!"). Number two, while there are certainly some sympathetic ears out there, when push comes to shove there is political pressure not to get involved or otherwise provide an easy platform for our message. Even if we had funds, many legal-oriented websites and blogs seem not all that interested in running or donating ad space for us. Given the nature of the product we are criticizing, this is understandable to a certain extent.
Part of our message has been humorous (to us, anyway) advertisements that parody ads that have been put out by the Law School Cartel. One you've seen already as a response to LSAC's "DiscoverLaw" campaign:
Another responds to the value of the "Million Dollar Law Degree":
This is where we turn to you, our readership. Are there venues that you are aware of that would be interested in running our "ads"? Can you print these out, e-mail them, circulate them, use them as conversation starters with those you know? What other ideas do you have?
Contact us and let us know. We appreciate your continued support and your activism.
