Default Momma don't let your babies...lawyers...

All,

Just a general recommendation. If your children are considering law school, do whatever it takes to keep them out of it for now. My reasoning: it's overpriced, the market is glutted (therefore, salaries are very low and hiring is way down), and law schools are playing games with their employment statistics to get people in.

In other words: it's too expensive and jobs are extremely scarce.

Just an FYI. Have a good weekend!

So true. There are more lawyers in the state of Texas than on the entire continent of Europe. My wife is about to finish her final year in this overly litigious state. Are you still a student?

If I recall, there are some nasty lawsuits going on because of this. Irony.

Business school is a great alternative. Less work, more jobs.

Also, if you're curious, this book appears to be good - http://www.amazon.com/Failing-School...1164389&sr=1-1

I thought I wanted to go to law school but after seeing what they make you go through I would have either quit or failed out. There is always beer to make everything feel better.

True. There IS always beer...until someone dies because of a bad batch. And then there will be angry MAHBs (Mothers against home brewing) petitioning Congress to shut down homebrewing, etc...etc...etc...

I always wanted to be a lawyer when I was younger, but decided another occupation would let me sleep better at night. So I became a male stripper.
