After talking with many people I've collected a bunch of opinions, mostly pointing in opposite directions. Some people seem to think that the law labor force is overcrowded, and it is extremely difficult to get a job and do well - while others believe that lawyers are in great demand(a law student who just got a summer job was told by a head hunter that legal jobs were the only ones he could place at this time - Albany, NY). I would imagine that coming out of a top notch law school, employment wouldn't be a problem. What about a 2nd or 3rd tier school? If you went to a lower ranked school, would you still be able to get a good salary? Please let me know what you think.
