It seems that this topic has been heavily debated lately...especially with the current (uncertain) economic conditions...
I found this article and I would like to open this topic up for discussion and see what other people are thinking about this subject.

I think it's a VERY relevant and vaild topic to discuss...especially with how expensive and time consuming a law degree is. And especially with the present economic conditions in this country.

Yes, it is very relevant. That is why this topic has been discussed ad nauseam on this forum. Two words: forum search.

Yale's a good investment even if you don't want to be a lawyer.

Shit I have doubts over whether I want to be a lawyer, but their LRAP is out of this world and I can't resist Yale on my resume. Got to get in first though...

Depends on the law school in question, amount of your investment, and your ambitions

My god - this is obviously not a yes or no question

Since most students accrue tons of debt at T2/T3/T4, I would say, no, for them, it's not a good investment. Does that mean it's not a good investment for EVERYONE? Uh ... no
