hervatski: And this is why batman has to fight Two face
bunner: Attention.The justice system is an industry.Cops, criminals, thugs, lawyers, judges, bureaucrats - sometimes interchangeable - all make coffee, put on their respective uniforms and go and clock in at the same factory.Avoid interacting with any of these motherf*ckers as if your life depended on it. You're welcome.
Chach: All my friends making $160K at IP firms at age 26 are going to be surprised to hear this.
Bandito King: I didn't get a harrumph out of you.Do I normally make you harrumph?
corn-bread: I went back to law school at 30 after doing IT for 12+ years. I did a night program and continued to work during the day. Over time I gradually transitioned from IT to law full time. As a result I suffered no decrease in income and am actually making more now than my last years in IT.The law profession is changing. Lawyers today have to be agile, they have to roll with the punches and always be hustling business. The days of lawyer incubating in large firms until they can learn the profession are over. These days you're expected to hit the ground running and start producing from day 1. If you're able to do that, then you'll do fine in law. If not, perhaps you can land a nice general counsel gig or work at a government agency. Baring that, you're screwed.
BravadoGT: I hated law school. Too many arrogant, hyper-competitive and treacherous people all concentrated in the same place.
Rik01: They invented the 'nuisance suit' a lawsuit slapped against someone just to drain his funds, with the plaintiff knowing they would loose.
Zeb Hesselgresser: ladyfortuna: . . . not the ones who need to learn it. The rest of us are, because we keep GIVING them our money./slowly cashing out stocksAnd moving into what? Seriously, WHERE is there to go?
dj_bigbird: It's so cute how the author completely avoids the main point of universities (of any sort) these days. It's a make-work program that is administration/staff heavy, making tons of $$. The problem in law school is the same as it is in any university.
desertfool: Now we need the followup: Why MBA's are useless and their graduates are ruining America.
FishyFred: whistleridge: 3. This is because law school is the only way out for entitled upper middle class kids who think they're rare and special and who were stupid enough to get dead-end liberal arts degrees. Besides, they just think that makes it more of a challengeThey should try business school.
