The Voice of Experience
"The problem with you people," says the law school cartel, "is that you have no concept for the value of what we're offering. A JD is a valuable and versatile investment that more than pays for itself. Further, you embark upon a voyage of discovery of legal scholarship while defending liberty, pursuing justice, and being the instrument of change. This is not about something so pedestrian or philistine as a job, but a life-long pursuit."
Or: "Problems in the legal arena now are due to the Great Recession, and not due to any JD over-production or other claimed systemic issues. Why, back as early as 2005, law-graduates were well sought after and commanded high salaries."
Some would beg to differ...
