US law grad sues law school cause she can’t get a job

Have you done a detail analysis  into what  Law degrees entails ? Are you sure you  want to be a lawyer? Is it true Aussie universities produce so many Law grads  which  the Australian economy is unable to absorb ?  A glut of Law graduates may translate to fewer  job opportunities waiting on completion of your degree. So be mindful of this if you still wish to pursue Law.

Why some people choose to study Law

  1. ‘ Earning’ Potential
  2. Opportunity to Help Others
  3. Intellectual Challenge
  4. Work Environment
  5. Transferable Skills
  6. Diverse Practice Areas
  7. Prestige

  • A Barrister is a senior lawyer, they wear wigs and appear in court. Law is is  relevant to every aspect of  human economy from business law ( governs commerce ), civil law (governs civil and social interactions), family law, criminal law, Intellectual Property Law ( also patents, copyrights, trademarks), International Law and Environmental Law.

  1. I am an American lawyer. Which means I spent 4 years to earn my bachelors and then 3 years to earn my law degree.

    I have a 16 year old son who will be heaing off to college next year. Like most 16 year olds he has no idea what he wants to do. I have suggested to him that he study for an LLB outside the US. That would give him a useable trade in the time he would only be able to earn a general bachelor’s degree in the states. But I have some questions:

    1. In which countries are LLBs offered?
    2. Are LLBs recognized in the states? In other words, would an LLB be a recognized pre-requisite to taking the bar exam in the US?
