This conversation about how brutal the legal market is reminds me a lot of what I heard before pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. As hard as it is, the legal field is not more competitive than entertainment.  From my experience, if you cultivate your talents, work hard and know the right people, you will most likely be marketable.  Turn that frown upside down and keep hustling  ;)

Too bad the entertainment industry has nothing to do with the legal industry.  You might be able to make a comparison if you ignore the fact that a law degree puts you potentially a quarter million dollars in debt whereas the entertainment industry doesn't.

1. Entertainment industry has nothing to do with the legal industry? So all those attorneys working in entertainment, and all those 'entertainment law' journals you find in law schools do not suggest a strong connection between the two industries?

2. Pursuing a career in entertainment can put you in just as much debt, if not MORE, as a relevant program at a private undergrad can be MORE expensive than attending law school.

Get a copy of The Elements of Style by Strunk and White. It can be found on Amazon from $3 to $10. It's not long and it's easy to read. Study it. Make certain you understand it. It will help you all through law school.

thank you for the heads up - Will do!  :)

General Board / 1L Legal Writing Prep

There are some great posts in this forum about how to prepare for law school during 0L, but it seems they mostly discuss prep for the substantive courses.

Any advice on how to prepare for Legal Writing class during 0L?

Thank you!  :) :)

Hey, thanks for the response, guys! Even though I was snarky, you both still gave me valuable insight and I greatly appreciate it.

Julie Fern, with over 26,000 posts on this board, I can't imagine you wouldn't have at least some insight on the subject of this thread.

Neither? Come on now, don't say they both suck because that's not helpful at this point. Thanks
