Wall Street Jorual Report: Job market poor for most law graduates

The findings of the WSJ speak for themselves.

In a nutshell:
  1. Earnings for most law graduates and lawyers have been stagnant or declining since the 1970's.
  2. The number of law schools and law graduates has dramatically increased, flooding the market with J.D.'s
  3. The Cost of earning a J.D. has skyrocketed.
  4. Generally, only attorneys at large firms have seen salary increases in recent years.
If you must go to law school, Go Prestigious, Go Public, or DON'T GO AT ALL! Save your finances. Save yourself. Avoid law school if you aren't sure you want to go.

The only way to succeed in law school and its unique Socratic method of teaching is to experience it – to invest countless hours with professors in a classroom environment.
