Law School Students: We Object!

Law School Students: We Object!
World

As we grow and mature, generation after generation, it seems that two professions act as the ideal careers for success, and ultimately to give our grandparents bragging rights in their Boca Raton development.

Lawyers and Doctors were once praised as the elite, and while they still do maintain prominence in society, law students are finding their dream of a life in the courtroom to be less than easily attainable.

Universities across the nation continuously use outstanding statistics to draw in students to their educational facilities guaranteeing them jobs upon graduation. Well what happens when students are left unemployed and buried in law school debt? Can these establishments be accused of violating legal ethics?

Displeased, unemployed undergrads have began suing their Alma madders. These students are alleging consumer fraud, yet no case has succeeded thus far. Are these judges looking out for their own? Or is this legal matter a mere gag assured for failure?

Law schools are merely there to provide academic legal experience in return for admission fees. There is no promise of guaranteed jobs after graduation; people need to begin taking responsibilities for their own future. One of the biggest issues with Generation-Y is their constant feeling that life should be handed to them on a silver platter with no requirement of hard work and dedication.

Too many law students are left jobless after law school, and with feelings of distress, anger, and confusion have taken action in the only way they know how. These law schools, while providing the services promised, may have skewed their advertisement of their institutions in a way that made students confident of their post graduation lives.

It just simply is not a good market out there nowadays. No institution can guarantee anything four or more years in advance in this economy for students, it plainly is just not stable or predictable enough.

So unless daddy owns his own successful law firm in your upper-class suburban town, I’d strongly urge you to consider all your other career options and make the most effective, efficient, success-guaranteeing decision for you.

Night Owls: Women Who Don’t Sleep Regularly Have Fewer Relationships And More Sex

This new study gives an entirely new meaning to “women of the night” — apparently the ladies who like to stay up late are more likely to get laid. The University of Chicago-sponsored study indicates that the women who consider themselves night-owls have similar risk-taking behaviors to their male counterparts. Both men and women who […]

Hate Groups Are Increasing All Over The US, And This Map Shows Where They Are

You’ve all heard about the registered sex offenders list, and the extremely brave (or neurotic and paranoid) among us have actually done a quick Google search to determine if we should avoid any of our neighbors in particular. In the same vein (similarly terrifying and disgusting), is this map that displays how many KKK and […]

Ellen Managed To Find And Give Pharrell An Even Bigger Hat (Video)

How do we love you, Ellen? Let us count the ways… OK, there are too many ways, but we do know that number just increased by one. Watch this amazing video of DeGeneres hosting Pharrell. Be warned, the title of this video is misleading. While Degeneres does give Pharrell an (impossibly) larger hat than the one he […]

The Good And Bad Of Being A Girl Who Only Hangs With Guys

I have been blessed with having many girlfriends that are chill and not dramatic. Those types of female friends can be difficult to find though, which is probably why I used to be the girl with mostly guy friends. I have been a bit of a tomboy for most of my life, so it was […]
