- Read this short piece.
- Tell me whether the economy persuaded you to apply for law school.
- And then tell me whether you’d sit on your arse for a year and be paid to do so. Seriously.
While I’m all for our society educating itself as much as possible (if only to rid us of that horrible “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader” show) I have to admit that I don’t want the legal gates flooded with applicants. It’s boils down to basic economics–more qualified applicants means that you’re apt to find one that will take lower pay. And while I’m not in the legal field for the pay I do feel that my work is worth the pay given to attorneys now. And that is my hot and cold of the day.
