I just read an article in online magazine. Didn't save it. The gist of it was that anyone coming out of law school who was willing to do public interest work for 120 consecutive months would have their debt repaid. I got the impression this was supposed to take effect in Nov. of this year. It was probably attached to a law school website I was surfing. If someone finds it post it, see if we can't confirm the details.
Bailey was onto the right idea. It isn't that there are too many lawyers. It's the cost of legal fees that prohibit people from getting the legal help they need. Now I know some of you think the law was created some 20 odd years ago so that your mommy and daddy could be proud of their little spud. It wasn't. The law is for all of us, from Bill Gates down to the guy who just defecated on himself sleeping in an alley. If you want to go work for the Bills of the world, then have at it. Best of luck. I, and others here, have no desire to work for Bill or BIGLAW. I'll go where I'm needed and fight the fights I want. Debt be damned.
However, I do appreciate your concern over my financial well being. In light of that, you can put me on retainer since it's only a matter of time before your caught in the back of a limo with 1/2 a key of coke and a couple prostitutes (didn't ask for IDs on that underage one?? oh that's trouble.)
