Join two law school deans, two law professors, and a frequent blogger on law school news in a lively discussion on the value of a JD in today’s economy. The recession and social media explosion has given law schools more attention in legal news. Sites and blogs like JD Underground, Above the Law, and Third Tier Reality have warned prospective students of the risks of attending law school in today’s economy. Some law school deans have recognized these concerns but maintain that a JD is worthwhile because of its respectability, versatility, and career longevity.
What are the concerns driving the recent anti-law school sentiment? How are law schools responding to this and the current market demands?
Future students, law students, recent graduates, and practicing attorneys should all tune in to hear the latest dialog.
This session will cover three main areas:
1. The current legal economy for JDs
2. Cost of law school vs. worth of law school
3. The curriculum: the theoretical and the practical.
