The Rooster Bar

Law students Mark, Todd and Zola wanted to change the world, but these days these three disillusioned friends spend a lot of time hanging out in The Rooster Bar, where Todd is a bartender. As third-year students, they realise they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specialising in student loans, the three realise they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.

The trio begin plotting a way out. Maybe there’s a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they must leave law school, pretend they are qualified and go into battle with a billionaire and the FBI . . .
