Go Home: No Work For Law School Graduates: An article in Student Lawyer magazine about why law school is a bad career choice for so many people — from October 1995.
UPDATE: I wrote again on this topic again in June 2012, in another magazine — which magazine’s readership is more esoteric, I’m not sure. Of course, it’s only worse now.
A more nuanced treatment can be found my 1998 Pre-Law Companion. It’s a little outdated in some respects, but still mostly valid in terms of career choices. (It’s out of print and will never earn out the advance I got so, trust me, I have no realistic financial interest in flogging it.)
