  1. Sadly, when the legal employment market is such that about 50% of the JDs produced over the past 40 years are not working in the legal profession, and when many who are are working for low rates of compensation, there isn’t much to celebrate.

    When the law schools are pumping out about four times as many new JDs than there are legitimate career-building jobs for them in the legal profession that will provide an appropriate return on the high investment cost of going to law school (which means that a huge number of ambitious young people’s lives are being permanently and irrevocably destroyed by non-dischargeable student loan debt and the unemployability that comes from having a “Scarlet JD”) there isn’t much to celebrate.
