    Today I want to discuss whether you should go to law school.

    Critical Thinking Skills. Law schools do a superb job at teaching critical thinking skills, and is one of the few disciplines that does this well.
    Prestige. Lawyers are viewed as leaders in the community.
    Wealth. A very small percentage of lawyers get wealthy, either through owning a large firm or becoming the CEO of a corporation.
    Cost. Law school costs lots of money, with most students financing their education through loans.
    Salaries. Most law students don’t make a lot of money right out of law school.
    Work-Life Balance. There is very little work-life balance for most lawyers. .
    Personal Problems. Lawyers suffer from high levels of depression and substance abuse.
    Talk to Lawyers. Go and find out what lawyers actually do.
    Career Path. If you are going into law because you want to do something specific, like fighting human trafficking, working for the Department of Justice, or becoming a judge, find out how realistic this is.
    Uncertainty. Many people go to law school because they don’t know what they want to do after college

    Learn Law Better is helping law students get better grades and prepare for the bar exam.

    Sir, are the TV shows a factual depiction of court...Judge Judy, Peoples Court? This is how much of society forms their opinions. A police captain told me the behind-the-scenes on Law & Order are mostly accurate regarding prosecutors, cops, and defense attorneys. Hope I'm not asking too many dumb questions. Thank you.

      TV is entertainment, trials are not. Though there are, in some trials, a few tense moments, real trials tend to be boring events. So no, TV shows are not anywhere close to being accurate depictions. For example, on TV shows they will often show a defendant confess to the crime on the stand. I’ve only met one attorney who actually had this happen in his case.

    If you graduate from a first tier law school, it is financially worthwhile. If you graduate from a second tier law school and plan to practice in a major or medium-sized city, then it may likely be financially worthwhile. If you graduate from a third tier law school and plan to practice in a major or medium-sized city, it is unlikely to be financially worthwhile. If you graduate from an unrated (not even rated third tier) law school or a law school not affiliated with a real university ( such as unrated Southwestern Law School), you are unlikely to pass the bar exam and get a job in law. Even if you eventually pass the bar exam and get a job in law, you are unlikely to ever make enough money for the ordeal to have been worthwhile.

      That is generally true. But many first tier graduates leverage their degrees to get great, but low paying, jobs in the public or non-profit sector. And some never succeed financially, even in the private sector. What a degree from a top law school does is get you interviews. You still have to land the job.

    The public in general don't revere lawyers. I read an article once that put lawyers only second to car salesman. Friends of mine have a nephew that when he got his certificate, he exclaimed, "now I have a license to steal." I have spent over 100 hours in a public law library to research law because I found out three attorneys lied to me about my car wreck case where liability was clear and injuries were documented. One of them filed a "fraud on the court" suit in my name after the defendant pled guilty to running a red light. In Georgia, insurance pays when liability is clear. In my research, the driver who is a CDL driver and driving a work truck, is under Federal regulations to have a minimum liability policy of $750,000. All attorneys on both sides and Nationwide Insurance kept that from me. So now, this simple liability case has what I believe, insurance fraud, fraud on the court, bad faith, frivolous litigation, malpractice, violations of due process, punitive and I'm sure more than I'm aware. Now, I can't find an attorney that will touch this with a ten foot pole. For obvious reasons. They ALL thought I was easy prey. I'm a 63 year old female hairdresser and I'm not giving up. I'm going public.

    I thought about entering law school over 10 years ago. I had some student debt from undergrad, and because I graduated in 2008, I was very cautious about entering law school to add more debt. To scope out the field, I asked recent grads and some current lawyers, about their debt and salary (some were kind enough to tell me). The people who were candid with me were usually people who had their undergraduate debt paid, had cars bought for them in undergrad, and graduated before the recession of '08. It really felt like a bubble, and some lawyers even said that, as a lawyer, they'd "always" have jobs. So, I lay low as a legal assistant for a few years and eventually became an RN. I am considering law again now, though. What opportunities might there be for a lawyer with an BSN degree?

    Currently in my second semester of law school and I've yet to hit 20 years old. Here in my country, we can take law as an undergrad degree. I read books and even worked at a law firm before going into law school, but even then I was feeling unsure if this was for me. Right now though, I'm enjoying my studies so I don't regret my decision. I guess no amount of preparatory work beats actual studying in figuring out if law school suits you, but you'll never know if you never try. Good luck to those who are considering whether to enter law school!

    I'm in the last semester of political Science hons,Delhi(India). I have interest in learning about justice and human rights. Want to work for the upliftment of socially/economically backward communities, but also want a job that assures my financial stability.
    I've two questions regarding this-
    1)Will a degree in law help me get there? Or should I go for masters in public policy? How are these two different?
    2) What kind of path I need to choose after LL.B to ensure that I serve the minorities.

      I don’t know anything about job opportunities in India. In the United States, Political Science would generally not be very useful for helping minorities. But it depends on the job opportunities. Some people just make the opportunities happen by doing the type of work they want to do. This is because a degree is not the end, but the means. In other words, a degree is designed to educate, not dictate a given career path.

      I believe that Georgetown is the only elite law school with a part time program. You will find that the education at the T14 are all about the same. What gives Georgetown an edge is location. It is blocks from the Capitol, Supreme Court, and numerous government agencies. This means that you get adjunct faculty who are agency leaders and great job opportunities.

    So I used to work in litigation consulting (I am a cpa) we worked on preparing an expert for testimony I hated the hours and the stress - drop everything last minute - random fire drills etc. the work was also mundane and tedious a lot of email review and looking at documents, making binders etc people freaking out about minor formatting shit, summarizing depositions, rewriting and writing reports.

    • Learn Law Better
      Learn Law Better  3 bulan yang lalu

      It depends on the type of practice. What you described is a litigation practice, which is what 10 to 15 percent of lawyers do. The vast majority do transactional work: reviewing contracts, tax, and all other sorts of document review. A small town practitioner will do more things while a big city lawyer will tend to specialize. In your case, I would see talk to la few lawyers and ask them about their typical day.

    My thoughts are, if you love an area of law so much that you couldn't live without it, then go be an attorney. Otherwise, pursue a different path. Law school will land you a middle-class salary with 6 figures in debt. Also, it seems like most law schools (even those attached to a major university) are just money suckers trying to take advantage of students wanting to be attorneys. There are few law schools which actually can put you on track for a profitable career in the law. There are always exceptions, but the whole stigma about the "T14" really is true.

    So essentially lawyers learn how not to be victimized by the numerous logical fallacies used in society and they use critical thinking by using the 7 liberal arts and sciences known as the Trivium and Quadrivium. As the saying goes, a leader is a reader.

      Learn Law Better I personally think that the more grammar someone gains even outside the field of law gives the individual more leverage to critically think to determine if sophistry is being used. When people’s lives are in the hands of a lawyer and judge, it is wise in my opinion to never be trapped in one field of knowledge. We are in the Information Age and nothing is occulted “hidden” from the public as long as they continue to learn until their dying breath. The following quote is very true, “ Knowledge without power is just ivory tower academics, power without knowledge is simply brute force”

    • Learn Law Better
      Learn Law Better  3 bulan yang lalu +3

      I’ve often thought that the trivium and quadrivium were crude attempts to teach critical thinking. For example, parents who teach using a classical curriculum force Latin grammar on their children, not appreciating that grammar was a means to teach an intricate set of rules-nothing sacrosanct in Latin qua Latin. Law does a decent job in teaching critical thinking, and in a way that Latin grammar did rather obliquely.

      This is an excellent question! It mainly comes down to two factors: prestige and student body. Over the last hundred years, certain law schools like Harvard, Chicago, and Georgetown have developed reputations as great schools.

    I currently am a music major but I've become very interested in law school. I have very good critical thinking skills and I love debating. I want to run for office one day too maybe. I thought maybe I could use my experience with music and specialize in copyright laws, specifically for music. Some current lawyers apparently don't know how music works, such as the stupid $100 million case against Ed Sheeran for the very basic, very commonly used chord progression used in his song, "Thinking Out Loud". It is the most ridiculous case I have ever heard of before. I think that my experience as a musician and formal study of music in college could help me greatly to specialize in this area. Thanks for this video though! It's very helpful. I think I have decided to go to law school now. I am just worried now about preparing for it. I am a current sufferer of social anxiety(the fear of being judged) and depression so I am worried I might not be able to do it, but I am currently being treated, and surprisingly, debating eases my anxiety actually because I personally like debating and it makes me feel more confident, especially if it's an issue I am well informed of. The three law schools I am looking at now are Georgia State University, University of Georgia, and Emory University.

      I was on my college debate team and enjoyed it too. But in law school there really aren’t many debate opportunities. In class it happens a little bit, and maybe a bit after class depending on the friendships you develop. The main opportunity is the moot court team, which you can join during your second year of law school.

    I honestly don't know if law school taught me more critical thinking than my BA. I felt swamped in the reading most of the time, to the point that I did not feel I had time to reflect on it much. I usually felt guilty about not reading everything and this hampered my class participation, and I was scared of being wrong. The essays in exams helped but were no different to BA essays, and the time pressure made them feel rushed and sub standard. I know if I had given myself over completely to study I would have enjoyed law school more, but I couldn't stand spending so many hours in the dry, dry material. Law school taught me resilience more than anything else.

      +Learn Law Better I was a history major, so I suppose I wrote a lot of essays. The exams I had in law school were a mixture of essays, which did not feel new, and case problems, which were genuinely different and made me think. I suppose the "step-by-step" process I had to use in those problems, of checking the legal boxes until reaching a grey area, helped to develop my critical thinking, but I don't think I lacked that ability to think things through before law school. Maybe to other people those thought processes do not come so naturally. My main problems came from studying consistently and staying motivated, something I never really nailed.

      @jacknjillzzz zzz I probably wouldn't go for those reasons. The people that go to law school because of the reasons you stated usually don't find a legal career satisfying. Legal work is not all that political; you will not be debating in the same way you do on your high school debate team or arguing about politics with your opinionated uncle during holidays. Public speaking is definitely a good one if you want to go into like civil work or something like that.

      The majority of politicians are lawyers. In 2018, there are over 1.2 million lawyers in the United States and just over 30,000 students will join the legal profession. Now, not every lawyer wants to become a politician, but many do. Also, if you want to run for office, you need to think about incumbents in the jurisdiction.
      So to answer your question, becoming a lawyer will help. But it's still very hard. If by your question you only mean getting a job in politics, like a staffer on Capitol Hill, then your chances of getting in become better. Though still lots of competition.

      It depends on the seriousness of the crime. Law schools don't want to admit students who will not be able to pass the character and fitness requirement to join the bar. So if someone committed murder or serious financial crimes, like embezzlement, then it will be hard to get into law school. The key is to fully disclose the crime in the application process. The law school can then make an informed decision, taking into account what they know of the state bar entrance requirements. Always fully disclose. Failing to disclose indicates a lack of honest, which will keep you from getting admitted.
