Law School Admissions / Dual JD and PhD?
« Last post by tabith on August 19, 2017, 12:43:44 PM »
I'm currently in a PhD program for history, about halfway done with my coursework. I enjoy the topic, but I've become somewhat disenchanted by academia and wonder if it's really what I want to be doing for a living - especially considering the likely poor monetary return I'll receive in the job market.

My university offers a part-time option for their law school, and I have been considering applying to the law program. I know some schools already offer established dual PhD in history and JD programs, so I have been debating if I should drop out of the PhD program completely and jump ship for JD, or if I should consider completing my coursework next year and then apply for the part time JD program while completing my dissertation. I'm not looking to make millions or become a nationally renowned lawyer. I'd just like to work in a career that offers a decent salary, fair job security, and uses skills which I'm already good at - namely researching and writing.

I always wanted to be a lawyer. I have heard about many lawyers and his experience from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and yelp. I am planning to contact the lawyer Bechara Tarabay from this website to know about his experience and skills. Becoming a lawyer is not an easy job.
