Is it worth going to Law School?
I have interest in law but not a burning desire or anything. I also don't know what else to do, and I don't want to be broke. What's your opinion GLP?

The world is ending, why bother now?

Unless, of course, you Are a professional liar, as that's what lawyers are paid to do.....

Wait and see what happens next year.

Lawyers are a major part of our problem. Especially, when they wholesale disregard the merits of legal standing, or sue on behalf of people they do not lawfully represent.

NOTHING wrong with that. Attorneys are needed, but the ambulance chasers give them a bad name. If you go in the right direction you might eventually hit a case you can retire on or at least pocket a ton of money.

You need to be good on your feet, verbally articulate, smart and argumentative does not hurt either.

If you want normal job security and the ability to work anywhere even from home go into I.T.

Re: Is it worth going to Law School?
My daughter worked as a paralegal and made fairly good money.
She specialized in divorce because its a big business.
Then she got depressed and changed careers - went into hair design. She really likes it.
Now she hears about all the other women who quit their chosen career's (nursing, teaching, real estate etc.) to work as escorts.
Its rough out there.

Re: Is it worth going to Law School?
There are lots of lawyers and a nursing shortage. As a nurse you can pretty much go anywhere and find a job anywhere on the planet. Not so for attorneys. Then if you're an attorney you either have to join a group or start your own law practice. Think overhead costs and you would have to provide your own health benefits, cover the expenses of an office, insurance, staff, etc. As a nurse all overhead costs are already covered and you get benefits (health care coverage, sick leave, vacation, etc). Benefits working for the county or nursing probably averages close to 30% that would be coming out-of-pocket if you're self-employed. Also, as an RN one can go to work immediately and not have to build up a practice.

Nursing make good money (generally starting off around $30 per hour in the city). With over-time at time and a half much better. Some nurses make good money roaming to different hospitals with a registry. These are the contract nurses (travelers). We have relatives doing this. They take a motor home and contract where they make a lot of money.

And there are many different types of areas of expertise for nurses so it's pretty interesting if one enjoys this type of work. Male nurses are in demand as well. The other profession that has a shortage is physical therapist who do the same thing when it comes to traveling and diversity. A number of them also specialize in wound care.

It's not as expensive for the training 3-5 years depending on the program. LVN 3 years, RN 3-4 year program.

What a great idea for someone considering this field! One of these niche specialties would be a good way to overcome the negatives associated with being a fledgling law student--an overcrowded, highly competitive occupation, big student loan debts.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."
