That is, this supplement adds information tailored to these extraordinarily unusual economic times rather than alters the advice presented in the original edition, which has stood the test of time and been demonstrated as solid by thousands of law students. The poor economy highlights the importance of this advice and presents additional challenges for prospective law students; it has not changed the nature of law school itself.
The economy has not, for example, changed the law school application process, nor the manner in which law school exams should be approached, nor the value of law review and moot court. It is the author's hope that once the economy improves--and it will, although undoubtedly with new opportunities in a different legal marketplace than that which preceded the recession--this supplement can be removed and we can forget that it was ever necessary.
For the foreseeable future, however, the effects of the downturn will continue to affect law students and graduates, often severely. And so this supplement seeks to provide a fuller picture of what law school applicants are likely to come up against during the four or five years it takes to apply to, be accepted in, and graduate from law school, followed by the bar exam and finding a job-- the job--and beginning your career in the law.
Later-in-Life Lawyers prides itself on being one of the foremost sources for telling the average nontraditional law student and a large percentage of law students are nontraditional, whether they like it or not exactly what law school and the legal profession is like.
While many other law school guides other than LILL's sister books from the same publisher are more interested in selling books by giving law applicants an unrealistically rosy picture of law school, LILL has chosen to address the economic downturn and how prospective students should now approach law school with increased caution.
