This Atlantic journalist believes law schools should turn away prospective students who are "in it for the money," and that a law degree should be considered a path towards "a respectable middle class profession," not a wealthy lifestyle. He also believes that law schools need to devise programs for "new lawyers" that mirror those laid out for people in the medical field. I have a feeling his views may be quite polarizing, so I'm interested in a discussion.
Wondering what the general response is to this brief article. Those of you who're applying to law school, still attending, or are now done and well into the work force, what do you think?
