Look on the bright side, guys

Unlike most countries, Japan worries about running out of lawyers;
The government plans to make sure that at least “1,500 or more” aspiring lawyers pass the national bar exam each year after successful applicants sank to a record low of 1,810 in 2014.
The figure for 2014 is 239 lower than in 2013, and the lowest since the current exam debuted in 2006.
Wasn't that long ago that Japan's target was much higher;
In 2002, the Cabinet set a goal of gradually increasing successful applicants to 3,000 a year by roughly 2010.
So, sue us.

  1. The "rule of law" is good, so rule by lawyers must be just as good, or even better.
