Why law school might have been a mistake

 July 28, 2016

Last week, I wrote a guest post for Above the Law’s Career Center, about why I went to law school.

It was a personal piece … about how I didn’t really think critically about going to law school, and how I’ve resolved lately that going to law school could have been a mistake.

And many of you have written me and asked whether I can do more videos, in addition to writing the weekly blog post. I love the idea! I’m going to do more videos, and I’ve decided to record my kick off video about this topic for the Leave Law Behind community.

Click the below player to watch the video (which I recorded from my home). I hope you enjoy it, and please leave your thoughts in the comments below or contact me directly.

  1. You’re forgetting the most important reason why going to law school was a mistake: there are NO jobs!!

    I know plenty of doctors who hate medicine, engineers who hate their jobs, etc. However, they still have jobs.

    Us lawyers, not so much.

    1. That is so true. Prospective law students now need to think critically as ever about making this three year commitment.
