The OP is absolutely correct. Many of the posters on this board are in denial (particularly Thelo--see above). If you want to get the real scoop on whether law school is a valuable investment, please see the following:http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/law_firms_express_growing_enthusiasm_for_contract_lawyers/http://www.altmanweil.com/index.cfm/fa/r.resource_detail/oid/6ddd4b8a-88a3-44ef-85a1-5a9a7ce501ac/resource/New_Law_Firm_Survey_A_Consensus_on_Change.cfmhttp://www.jdunderground.comhttp://thirdtierreality.blogspot.com/This was also big news in the legal world about a week ago:http://balkin.blogspot.com/2010/06/wake-up-fellow-law-professors-to.htmlhttp://legalblogwatch.typepad.com/legal_blog_watch/2010/06/law-professor-supports-scambloggers-calls-for-his-colleagues-to-wake-up-to-reality-.htmlPlease take the time to inform yourselves. There are countless others.
Bigs, trolls just like to post to scare people. That and crybabies who honestly believe if they scare people away that they'll somehow get better pay and jobs. "If I tell all the pretty girls to go home, I'll be the prettiest cow at the ball....."

LOL. I think the market is a little too big for anyone to actually move the pay scale by encouraging people to stay out.I don't remember what the OP said exactly, but I don't see anything wrong with the title. Caution's healthy.
Hi,I thought I expressed myself clearly. Oh well, let me try it again.Representing yourself is dangerous because you are personally involved. It is important to be dispassionate when analyzing the facts and applying the law. That doesn't mean that I don't monitor the progress of the case by reviewing the pleadings, attending the hearings and checking the relevant common and/or statutory law. Therefore, I would say that not representing myself does not mean, at least to me, that my law degree is wasted.I'm happy with the balance in my life. Bryan
