Legal jobs vanished. Fewer people applied to law schools. Some schools cut enrollment. There are too many lawyers.
For the JD-curious, Zac Bissonette repeats what can always use repeating:
My advice to would-be law students is this: Don’t think that law school is a guarantee of anything, and only consider going if the career you are passionate about involves being a lawyer. Keep your ego out of it, and don’t be seduced by the bright lights of a J.D. Finally, let your results on the LSAT influence your decision: If you aren’t qualified to get into an elite law school, consider that it might not be the right career for you anyway.
