Argument: Three years of law school has huge opportunity cost

Issue Report: Law school


Paul Gowder. “Why you shouldn’t go to law school.” Law and Letters. November 15th, 2007: “And not just the debt. But also the massive opportunity cost of three years of your life. Compare this to grad school, where top phd programs tend to be funded. Or to an MBA program which is a year shorter (and sometimes two years shorter). Or to working at something that you might find interesting, where you can learn, build human capital, and get paid, all at once.”
