There’s a large movement afoot in legal circles to blame law schools for the inability of recent grads to find meaningful employment as a lawyer. It has a bit of traction. I’m not a member of this movement, as I had the limited wherewithal when I signed on the Law School dotted line in 2001 to realize that a degree was no guarantee of future employment.
However, being a big fan of creative solutions, I have a proposal.
I’ll join the “law school lied to us in order to make money” movement on one condition:
That all other members of this movement admit that they went to law school as a means of gaining a doctoral-level degree without the requirement of a dissertation.
There you go. I look forward to the opportunity to join your esteemed movement.
