Demand

One lawyer exists for every 300 people in the US. About 25 percent of attorneys are self-employed, the BLS reports. Competition among law schools is fierce, with colleges and universities recieving far more applicants than they have openings. And the employment climate continues to be brutal, with law schools cranking out an average of 40,000 graduates every year, Weedman-Davis says. Many lawyers create their own opportunities by establishing practices in small towns. Other law school graduates have found success in unrelated feilds, such as legendary football coach Vince Lombardi, rock musician Ray Manzarek of the Doors and TV personality Ozzie Nelson.
