Happy New Year, Don’t be a Lawyer!

Haha, that sounds really dark… but it’s a not-so-secret fact that lawyerin’ isn’t as glamorous as it’s cracked up to be. I have dissuaded several young people, oftentimes as they are approaching college graduation and are unsure of what they are going to do next, that law school is not a good option unless that’s really what they want to do. 3 years and tens of thousands of dollars is a lot to spend, unless you really want to be a lawyer. And you can do a lot with a law degree, but if what you want to do is anything other than BEING a lawyer, you really don’t need that expensive degree. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, but this song from “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” says it really, really well!

I’ve never seen the show before, but I am certainly a fan, now!

  1. I have great confidence that the writer of this bit went to law school! It’s not uncommon, eg Ronny Chieng, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronny_Chieng
