There’s a lot of chatter in the blogosphere about whether a lower ranked law school is worth attending. One of my most controversial blog posts ever was on this very topic, so it’s no secret where I stand on the issue. (Just in case you missed it back in 2007: Why Going to Law School is Worth the Sacrifice)
My next Blog Talk Radio Show is going to deal with this very issue. I’ll be interviewing 5 attorneys who graduated from law school in the last 10-12 years. One went to Yale Law, one went to NYU Law, one to the University of Miami (after getting his undergrad at Harvard), one graduated from Santa Clara Law and one from California Western School of Law. One now owns a legal recruiting company, one works for a 70-lawyer, 8 office firm, one works for the Department of Justice, one owns her own 2 person law firm, and one did own a 12-attorney law firm and is now a private investor and stay at home mom. Tune in to match up which lawyer has which job! You might be very surprised!
Listen in to how they chose their law schools (ranking, location, scholarships), what they think of their choice today, whether they took on debt and whether they feel it was worth it, and learn about the career opportunities available to graduates of such differently ranked law schools.
This is going to be a great show, so mark your calendars for Monday, January 25th 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST for a 45 minute blog talk radio show: Choosing the Right Law School For You. (And thanks to the winner of my contest, Chris, for the great topic idea!)
