The Law School Bubble - bit america centric but certainly true here in the UK

Law School Bubble
From: The Best Colleges


  1. Yes, it's all a bit sad, but doesn't this regulate itself after a while? IF you read in the papers that half of law graduates end up at McDonalds and those who get a law job are paid badly, then won't fewer people go and study law?

    Of course, the law is a closed shop, if you don't have a father or uncle in the business you can forget it anyway. Or do like I do - and just do a law degree for the fun of it, for self-improvement.

  2. you'd think, but having been told to always trust teachers kids with degrees in history of the internet find law colleges telling them it will all be okay if they just hand over £20k for tick the box internet tests

    then they need to do an apprenticeship for 2 years and then they need to work for a firm for 3 before they can start out on their own.

    it should be degree, work for someone/work for yourself end of. its ridiculous having this segment of the economy still run by guilds.

    don't even get me started on the spastics who panic about personal injury, any fcuking idiot can see that if you squeeze down costs as has been done for the last 10 years solicitors etc will respond by increasing volumes to compensate for it!
