Law School is Ticket to Unemployment & Debt


Texas law graduates face a challenging job market upon graduating, according to a recent Dallas Morning News article.

Affected tremendously by the 2008 recession, large firms found themselves downsizing, and smaller firms were closing shop, resulting in a common supply and demand issue: more lawyers, less firms.

Students who choose law school, usually do so because of the security that is associated with the profession, unaware of the rising costs and burden of debt that follows.

Dedman Law school ranks 18th in the nation in job placement for lawyers. Still, Dedman Law has an employment rate averaging around 90 percent. Nevertheless, law graduates will find themselves working exceptionally hard in a challenging job market that refuses to ease up.
