"This country cannot withstand more lawyers, what happensin law is troubling," Castaños said on the program Here is the News, channel25.
The academician also criticized some universities which haveas many as 40,000 students, which despite being a positive factor, as a disadvantagehave many programs which haven’t integrated the changes education needs.
