The real question is whether BigLaw can ever return to its 2004-07 form. Some people, unlike Nerfco, say "absolutely not" because the transactional work that they relied on will be gone. I don't know enough about BigLaw practice areas to comment, but it seems like that would be central. Maybe it was merely a bubble of work.Classic collective action, no? Howrey is screwing themselves because nobody wants 100k and "training" when they could have 160k and billing. I don't even plan to interview with them or Biddle.I want to see some of the TTTs get royally screwed ITE, if only to reduce the Law School tuition monster. The JDUnderground types shouldn't be scammed. That, or some legislative student loan reform.ETA: Nerfco
I agree, but don't there still have to be different classes? The 2011 BigLaw class may be smaller, but it still has to exist.

One word: deferrals. The class of 2011 doesn't have to exist, since we (c/o 2010) will be starting when you would, and the class of 2012 can start as normal. Obviously it wouldn't be that black-and-white though, since firms would realize they could pick up much higher-quality students than normal, etc.That said, you'll all be fine. And by all, I mean most. Probably about the same number will be fine as in our class.
