Law School Students: We Object!
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.
