A few years ago, the United States experienced a recession (I really hope that isn’t news to anyone…). The legal market—like most industries—experienced a substantial decline as a result of the economic downturn. Many law students found themselves without employment after graduating. In an effort to recoup their losses, some students tried suing their schools. This post is going to provide a brief overview of those students’ lawsuits; then, it will segue into a discussion of how to maximize employment opportunities in the current legal market.
