The New York Times published an article in January entitled “Is law school a losing game?” It showed how a law school graduate will incur over $250,000 in debt and is unlikely to find a job. More recently, The Wall Street Journal wrote an article demonstrating how many law school graduates can’t find legal positions and have resorted to taking low-paying temporary jobs which pay on average $15 an hour. The question we ask in this infographic is whether it is worth, in the current climate, going to law school at all…?
It is a difficult environment these days for those who are embarking on their chosen career paths at great cost and with the risk of long-term debt.
Huge thanks to The Best Colleges for this wonderful visual depiction.
