Law students are coming back to campus now, mainly for on-campus interviewing. How is 3L recruiting going for you, class of 2013?
Ha ha, just kidding. Hopefully when these kids decided to go to law school back in 2010 — despite overwhelming evidence that it was a risky proposition — these kids had some kind of back-up plan for just this situation.
Speaking of “overwhelming evidence,” there’s been a fun little infographic making the rounds around the blogosphere. It’s about the “new” trends in the legal market.
I’m not sure these trends are particularly new. In fact, I think these are trends that people should have been aware of for years. But since so many people show up to campus without critically thinking about their post-graduate job prospects, I’m going to guess this infographic is breaking news to a lot of returning law students…
My favorite stats are the ones about how many new lawyers there are. It’s like a horror movie; they just keep coming.
But like I said, current law students did their research, right? They are prepared for these numbers.
