Apparently, fewer people are applying to law school. That’s a good thing. Working as a lawyer isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In terms of how the market rewards you for your J.D. and licensure, it’s pretty much just another white collar job these days. One that pigeonholes your career options down the road. Unless you’re really sure that practicing law is what you want to do, you should probably take a pass on law school. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of lawyers in the future.
