I had considered starting this ‘gripe’ blog for quite awhile. I kept hoping against hope to actually find a real job and negate my growing desire to add my voice to the chorus online of other similarly situated attorneys. But after a year and a half of looking in earnest I’ve come to an unfortunate realization. Going to law school was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made.
Don’t get me wrong; it was intellectually stimulating, and at times fun, but in terms of a career there really isn’t a worse choice I could have made. I’ll be explaining why thru posts on here. As the title implies, Law Schools are lying to the general populace about the potential for careers and the salary to be expected. For several years now there has been a growing groundswell for the ABA to more thoroughly regulate Law School statistics released to the public. I’d personally like the ABA to actually regulate law schools significantly more than the minimum they do now; and start revoking certification to the well known offenders dragging down legal education (we all know who they are… and more on this later).
Truly this is catharsis. And cheaper than therapy; especially since without a job I have no insurance. I will post my stories of meandering through the legal field, and pretty much anything else vaguely related. So until I can figure out what my ESQ is good for, welcome to the blog lonely traveler.
