Law School = Is it worth it?

Mesaj gönderen Beylshend »

Turning 27 in a couple of months. Earned my Bachelors in Social Sciences in 2007. I've flirted with law school off and on since 2010 but the average debt for CA law schools even the tier 3's and 4's looks to be around 125k! Including interest, that's going to take forever to pay off. More importantly, it will cost me at least 160k and that's me being modest with interest. I'd like to get into civil law, I have work experience with lawsuits and I think I'd do quite well but the amount of debt is ungodly. I can't justify spending the time and effort to become a lawyer then spend that much money or am I coping out?

My son got his law degree 5 years ago and has yet to settle in ANYWHERE - the jobs are few and far between. He has most recently been working as a law firm administrator...for more money than as an attorney, but less use of the law degree! His debt is approx. $150K. Graduated magna from a top tier. He thought he wanted to be a trial lawyer. He was wrong - the hours required to do that job well totally take over your life. Saving graces? If you can get a government or nonprofit job you can get rid of that law school debt in 10 years rather than paying on it until you hit the funeral home doors. His advice he wishes someone had told him is CONTRACTS. Everything is a contract. And Wills and Estates is huge too. He also says if he'd known how tough it would be to find what he was looking for he'd have gone into IT. Seems if you're in IT you can pretty much go anywhere and locate a great job quickly.

It seems to me that it's never too late to start learning, especially if you like it. You can change your profession and do what you love that brings money. So I retrained from a doctor and became a lawyer. I don’t regret that I didn’t start earlier. After all, I am now more responsible. Tutors from https://law-mind.co.uk/ helped me to enter the university. If you need help with your studies, then you should contact them
