Are you still in law school or working in the field already?
Do have an interest in Estate Planning or do you know about the prospects from others who have tried to get into it?
It sounds like the picture you're painting might be worse than trying to get a corporate law position in a big firm. Is that true?
Is there just a short supply of jobs in Estate Planning? That doesn't surprise me too much, but I would have thought there would be a fairly low number of people coming out of school with an interest in Estate Planning too. I figured most people interested in law would find Estate Planning a bit dry.
...One thing that does worry me about the demand for Estate Planning is the changes that are likely to be enacted by Congress by the end of the year. It's sounding like the Estate Tax exemption amount is going to stay at $3.5 Million. That doesn't leave too many people who will need Estate Planning. I also read the other day that all the bills currently in Congress have a provision that will allow a spouse to inherit their deceased spouse's unused Estate Tax exemption. That makes the picture even uglier....
