The Job Market

Postby CaptainCrunch » Tue Jun 29, 2010 3:16 pm

Any expectation that things will be a little better by 2013? I'm a 0L right now, it sounds really rough out there.

What is exactly is causing the market to shrink for lawyers?

Ummmmm, a little publication called the "Wall Street Journal" might be helpful in understanding the answer to this question. Search the archives dating back to, let's say, late summer 2008, search terms "economy" and/or "recession."

Sorry for the jackass response, but...you sort of gave a great opening there for me.

Yeah I guess it's a pretty vague, open-ended question. Just trying to glean whatever wisdom the melting pot is willing to share.
