I honestly do not feel that a surplus of lawyers is where the problem is at (that is not saying it isn't an issue). I feel that the problem is currently the cost of attending law school, which forces law graduates to all target the high paying jobs. There are a number of "inferior" legal areas that are not overstaffed, but they are generally paying too poorly for a debt-laden graduate to consider if they have other options available.
as a lawyer who graduated from law school over a year ago as a nontrad student, I can tell you NOT to go.There are no jobs. There is little solo work for the huge amount of solo lawyers.There is rampant age discrimination.me== top ten percent magna cum laude TTT grad in the sunbelt. Cannot even get a response to my resumes.Any more questions?Keep your head up, only a year has elasped.

well both.A profession surely is not the rest of your life, hence the term "non traditional". Plenty of lawyers who switch professions and v/v. Have all of you even looked in the reality of things? There is even a section on lsd that might be helpfull:http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/students/index.php/board,1009.0.html
