Law School Attendance In The US Down, Way Down!

I happened to hear this on NPR (as in first image) yesterday and had to do a double-take. They are even talking of law schools closing down.


Law school enrollment & attendance really is down. Half of what it was a decade ago?

Who would have thought? Who would have credited? If anything you would think that more ‘kids’ wanted to be lawyers when they see all these rich & famous lawyers on TV.

Yes, it is not cheap becoming a lawyer. That is supposedly a factor. But, there is also the rewards.

I am surprised. I guess all the jokes about lawyers have finally come home to roost.

A U.S. with not as many lawyers. Wow. What is that going to be like. I can predict one thing. Their rates will go up even further. That, obviously, will cause the tide to reverse.

I will have to keep an eye on this. See who I know is planning to become a lawyer.
