Argument: More competition for fewer law jobs

Issue Report: Law school


Yahoo Answers comment by Megatron in 2009: “The legal profession is in crisis. Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don’t expect the situation to improve in the coming years. You are better off saving the money you’d pay for law school and invest in a franchise or small business.”

Yahoo Answers comment, 2009: “Warning! Jobs in the field of Law are drying up FAST!! This is not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. […] Also, we simply have WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals – we have an absolute GLUT!! (“Legal Professionals” includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc).”
