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.
