just ask any lawyer. chances are they'll tell you to run. fast.

Eh, it's not really what you make it. Most people end up going into corporate even if they plan on doing something else. If you go into biglaw, it's a big pile of shit the first few years. Hell, there's a second year at my firm who does the same shit I do and I'm a paralegal. Yesterday he called to ask me for help on a complaint he was writing. Don't get me wrong, I'm super excited to be a piece of shit on a partner's shoe for the first few years, but I think a lot of people go into it thinking "I'm going to argue in court every week!" and "I'm gonna change the world!" And maybe they will (just not for a long time), but most likely they'll sit at a desk and do other people's shit work.

Sorry for being so cynical...but I'm sure the majority of people on TLS know this to be true, so I won't feel so bad.

one can dream :p

No, no, no, no.

People do unconventional things despite law degrees, not because of them. The universe of non-legal jobs that seek out a JD is extremely small. In most cases, a JD will be an obstacle you need to overcome. There is a suspicion that you really want to be a lawyer and will leave when you have the opportunity, or that you washed out as a lawyer and are damaged goods. And if you do overcome these hurdles, you are generally going to still start at the bottom rung.

Law school will not prepare you for an actual job. It barely gives you any practical skills for a legal job. It is largely a hurdle you need to overcome in order to take the bar (your bar prep course will teach you everything you need to pass in 6 weeks). The first six months of your first legal job will be when you start actually figuring out what lawyers do.

If don't want to practice in a big firm, limit your debt. If you do want to practice in a big firm, go to a top school (but still limit debt). If you don't want to practice law, don't go to law school.

Ding.

If you've taken it twice already, I think self-study is in order at least for starters. I'll be taking for 3rd time in December... when re-studying for September, I just put myself in a cafe/library and dove in to 7sage videos. Little commitment, JY always has jokes. They got me warmed up and I was back in it in no time. There is no way I can study in my apt, that's just me.


I know 7sage for LG is free, but is there 7sage for LR? If so, is it free?


http://www.velocitylsat.com/free-lsat-prep-videos

Not as detailed as 7sage LG but the LR is pretty good and the RC is great.


Thanks so much for this!

I love the law (*starry-eyed*) (*cut to five years from now*) "What the fuck is this?" But really... I'm excited :P

Are you a boomer?


Tbf if they see a JD and your not practicing law it raises questions. Like the modern day scarlet letter

That wasn't a retort to dirigo but to the boomers above

Go to law school if you want to be a lawyer.
Any other aspiration isn't worth the time wasted, the debt, and the embarrassment.

what's a lawyer?
