I graduated with a JD/MBA from a regional/local school with good grades in both programs. I may continue to look at nonlegal jobs.
Some have said that the law degree helps, because you bring a unique brand of knowledge and intellect.
Others have said the law degree overqualifies the applicant.
I would imagine it would have a lot to do with the type of nonlegal job, the salary, and how tangentially related it is to the skills a law degree builds.
I also do not understand how some claim that omitting a JD from a resume is beneficial! Even if it were perceived as a bad thing, there would be a huge chronological gap on your resume.
Any feedback on all this would be appreciated. The job search is frustrating.
