Many law students across the nation are concerned about jobs in the legal profession and are pushing for reform in data reporting as it pertains to legal education. Nate Burris, President of the Law Student Association at Boston College Law School and William D. Henderson, a Professor at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, are guests on Lawyer2Lawyer with Attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams to discuss the issues, including the role of the ABA and law schools, law students’ concerns about their education debt and the current legal job market.
Over the past year, the legal community has been dogged by a down economy resulting in layoffs, pay cuts and lack of jobs from the largest law firms down to the smallest law firms. What does this mean for law students? On Lawyer2Lawyer, co-hosts and attorneys, Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams welcome Professor William D. Henderson from Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Dr. Silvia Hodges from Fordham University School of Law, to discuss what law students need to learn while in school, the present legal job market and what the future holds for law students when they graduate from law school.
