Reason Number Four not to go to law school: PI, PI, No. I was sitting in the swivel chair in the office of Julio Adler, the half-Cuban, half-Jewish lovechild of a fashion merchandiser and an investment banker from West Yonkers - producing the most ridiculous accent imaginable

Reason Number Four not to go to law school: PI, PI, No. I was sitting in the swivel chair in the office of Julio Adler, the half-Cuban, half-Jewish lovechild of a fashion merchandiser and an investment banker from West Yonkers - producing the most ridiculous accent imaginable. He had a reputation in the area as the best private investigator around. He had a reputation in my mind as saying all the wrong things at all the wrong times, at least to me. But he was a close, personal friend, and his track record couldn't be argued with

I went to law school for the same reasons you think you should go - and I was wrong. If you're not thinking about going to law school, you can skip this whole post, or just send it to your friends who are thinking about going and thank your god that you're not them

I went to law school for the same reasons you think you should go - and I was wrong. I should never have gone to law school, and you shouldn't either. If you're not thinking about going to law school, you can skip this whole post, or just send it to your friends who are thinking about going and thank your god that you're not them. But if you are one of the many thinking about law school, start by asking yourself one simple question: "Why do I want to go to law school?" Yes, it's an obvious question, but almost everyone in your position either overlooks it or avoids it with rationalizations. So answer it, right now, to yourself.

Should you go to law school? . 1. Law schools are misrepresenting their grads' job success. According to the article in The New York Times, schools appear to be cooking their employment numbers to do better on US News & World Report's rankings of the best law schools.

Wow. I wish someone had bought this book for me BEFORE I went to law school, just so I'd made an informed decision!!! Full of awesome shoot-from-the-hip truths not only about law school, but about the practice as well. I read this in our law firm library and thought "This is exactly what I've been saying" several times; laughed aloud several other times; and then bought my own copy. Inspiring quotes and stories from tons of attorneys who went on to pursue completely different/alternative career paths. Inspiring to those who want out, who are still "in", and a cautionary warning/preparation to those who want a career in law. A MUST READ to be well-informed and prepared for law school and also, the career that follows.

The book's title says 29 reasons not to go to law school. However, the book actually has 36 reasons not to go law school. The book says that in California, the Bar Exam tests not so much on what a person has learned in law school, but on the ability to memorize the contents of an 8 inch-thick outline with contents that are largely not taught in the law school heavily. Even then after the long hours of law school and studying for the Bar Exam, there is only about a 50% chance of passing the Bar Exam. The book says that a large number of the general public people don't like a lot of lawyers and don't have high personal opinions of lawyers. Some people feel that some lawyers don't deserve to be paid $200 an hour or more. There is unit billing in the law field by some lawyers. No matter what portion of 15 minutes a lawyer talks to a client on the phone, the lawyer will bill for 15 minutes. Thus, if a call is only two or three minutes, the lawyer will bill a minimum of 15 minutes. As a judge, a person will have to listen to those attorneys that they used to avoid at cocktail parties. An advantage of being a judge is that former law school classmates must stand when the judge ascends the throne. They call the Judge "Your Honor." If a judge feels that someone is too disrespectful of his authority, he can order the armed bailiff to take the person to the nearest steel cage.

There are many laughs to be had while reading this book. But in the end it is written by a bunch of disgruntled law students who hate the profession and want everyone else to hate it as well.
I'm not sure where these people went to school- probably in those top tier schools that people sell their souls to the devil to get into, and then complain about the competition, money, etc.
If you go to a regional law school, or (gasp!) a public law shool, you will find that most of what is described in this book is not true. My professors are not out to get me or humiliate me. Perhaps the ivy league schools are filled with teachers with this mentality, but your state's school is most likely filled with people who enjoy teaching and want to produce good lawyers.
Read this for fun- but don't let it stop you from going to law school if you really want to go.

It is hilarious in a i-wish-i-could-not-relate kind of way. I am about to graduate so I know (and haven't had the chance yet to forget) how horrible law school is!! You will find these stereotypical professors/students do exist! It is actually fun to read and realize that there are a lot of normal people who went to law school and found it just as bad. I don't think anyone who hasn't experienced it themselves will truely understand and relate to this book! So I would recommend it more for people who have been through it and not for people considering it.
