This is in response to the guy who is asking whether JD degrees are versitle.
Listen, I hope you don't think those hours you spent in your LRW class going over citing is worth one cent in any other type of occupation. Ok, in all honesty, maybe its worth a little, but if you don't want to practice law, drop out of law school.
If you want to do business go to business school. If you want to do sales, get a job in sales.
I know sooooo many people who have received their JD's or are in the process of getting their JD's who think that their degree will help them wherever they end up. Well, that's crap. Civ Pro, Torts, Property (future interest especially), Blackacre, etc is not going to help you one bit in the non-law world.
Sure the analytical and critical thinking skills that you acquire in your 3+ years of expensive schooling may help, but I can assure you that you can or could have attained such skills in another occupation or another school setting.
Basically, a JD means that you read a lot of cases, wrote a few papers, and passed your tests. F*** it.
