Employment outlook for an older grad?
« on: July 23, 2009, 05:24:00 PM »
Does anyone know what the job perspective is like for someone who will be in his late 30's when graduating law school?  Are there any differences between being in your 20's, 30's, 40's or 50's as far as landing a job goes?

Yes, there are differences. What kind of work were you hoping to do?

A lot depends on what law school you go to and what grades you got there. Pre-law work experience can sometimes be a factor also, depending on what it is.

I haven't really decided yet.  I guess that matters, right?  I'm assuming corporate is more competitive?
