If you are reading this because you want to go to law school, be AWARE, the job market is abysmal. There is very little out there for recent graduates. Know this. Be aware. And know that one has to think creatively. The law is traditional. Very slow to turn. And that means with the economy as well. Conservatism in hiring and turning things around.
I am finding that most of my classmates hung their own shingle. Very few secured firm jobs or government jobs either. Firms downsized and so those lawyers with less experience were let go and those attorney's filled the market that is usually open for newer attorney's. Networking only goes so far.
