Law Degree on Craigslist.jpgThis should sound familiar to many of you: After several years of practicing law, a San Francisco lawyer has come to regret the decision to go to law school.
Unlike many of you, this lawyer has decided to try to hawk their law degree on Craigslist. From the “For Sale – Collectibles” section of SF Bay Area Craigslist:

Though I spent over $100,000 on it I am willing to sell it for the bargain basement price of $59,250, which is the current value of my remaining student loan balance.
This priceless collectible will permit you to be surrounded by hobby-less a**holes whose entire life is dictated by billing by the hour and being anal dickheads. Additionally, this piece of paper has the amazing ability to keep you from doing what you really want to do in life, all in the name of purported prestige and financial success.

Let’s take a look at the full ad, shall we?


Here’s the complete posting from Craigslist. Anyone recognize which elitist institution this degree is from?

We must say that this seems like a bad time to put your degree on the auction block. Widespread law firm layoffs mean that this asset is currently undervalued. Though with the continued flooding of the JD market, things may only get worse.

UPDATE: This law degree is from Georgetown Law School.

This Craigslist poster isn’t the first J.D. to attempt to sell their degree online. This stunt was previously performed back in 2008 (although the fellow who tried to sell his law degree on eBay was not a graduate of a top-tier school).
