The problem isn't that I want something to happen immediately, it's that approximately half of all law school graduates in the US are ending up unemployed, underemployed, or in jobs that they could get without a legal education. There are way too few entry-level attorney jobs to support the supply that is pushed out every year. I made - what I believe to be - a mistake. I base this belief on the fact that my brother has fared incredibly well in his job search relative to my own search. Although it's too early to tell whether my choice to attend law school will ultimately pay off, there were definitely better (from a cost/benefit standpoint) alternatives available.I want others to know the truth about the legal market and the legal profession. I want them to know that law school is becoming more and more of a fool's bet as tuition increases, additional grads are allowed to enter an incredibly over-saturated market, legal work is being outsourced, state bars are increasingly allowing foreigners to get LLMs in the US and sit for the bar, and the ABA is seriously considering allowing foreigners to complete legal education outside the US (which is the equivalent of college in the US) and sit for the bar. The legal profession is in serious decline. The decline has been exacerbated by many of the factors I have listed above - factors above and beyond just a "bad economy." Take note of the decline and decide for yourself - with all available information - whether law school is right for you. It's definitely not the same legal market that your dad grew up knowing.
