Better than what? Prospects for 2011s? 2010s? 2009s?
I would hope that things have picked up by 2012. Even if they haven't, I think the legal industry will already have accomplished a lot of the painful adjustment (the pain having been absorbed by the above three classes in the form of deferred start dates, lower summer offer rates, and lower numbers of students recruited to summer programs), so that in and of itself might make things a little better.
