The Rooster Bar OverviewIn The Rooster Bar by John Grisham, students Mark Frazier, Todd Lucero and Zola Maal believed they had been cheated by a for-profit law school that charged them high tuition rates and encouraged them to rack up huge amounts in student loans with the promise of a lucrative career. With only one semester of college to go and only limited job opportunities in sight, the three managed to pull off a racketeering scheme, stealing more than $4 million from the man they credited with having stolen their futures. Themes in the novel include the deterioration of the American Dream, techniques of manipulation by for-profit schools and lone agencies, and the prevalence of bad lawyers.
