They are having real trouble just fulfilling people's rights to due process because they can't find enough lawyers to defend the people who need it, and similarly on the prosecutorial side they need quality people. There are lots of downsides, like it being, well, an outpost, and it's cold, and there isn't much to do, and it's cold, and there isn't a ton of culture. But the school there is very cheap, the energy economy there is booming and cost of living is quite low. So your money, which won't be a lot, seems like more. States like this are insulated, in terms of graduates from outside schools coming in, and also with highly influential governmental positions filled by state school grads. So if you can handle the downsides, it could be a good place to look.
And if you can't find a job as an attorney in Wyoming, the McDonald's in Douglas is offering $15 an hour.
Sorry, but I can't resist...
For those of you who have never been to wyoming...I wouldn't try it. I would rather live in a cardboard box and eat stale bread from a dumpster before I would turn to THAT.
IMHO...wyoming is one of the few states in this country that I wish would dissolve itself from the map.
And I won't even get started on the legal system. Its run like a damn five and dime. It makes my physically ill to think about it.
Second to Florida.
Sorry, but its true.
