An Expensive Law Degree, and No Place to Use It

More and more law school graduates are coming out with a quarter million dollars in debt and no job. "As of this April, fewer than 70 percent of Valparaiso law school graduates from the previous spring were employed and fewer than half were in jobs that required a law license. Only three out of 131 graduates worked in large firms, which tend to pay more generous salaries."

Those are terrible odds. That's a lot of debt for no job prospects.
