I graduated from law school in 1985, which doesn’t seem that long ago. Apparently, it was though. And it appears that the cost of a legal education has risen at least 267% since then. About 80 percent of law school students obtain loans to pay for law school, and the average loan debt is $76,763 for private law school graduates and $48,910 for public school graduates.
No wonder the legal system is so expensive.

I have written a manifesto on whether or not a person should go to law school, which is posted at https://informeddecisionmaking.blogspot.com
My only motivation in writing this is that I be able to help at least one person make the correct decision as to whether or not they should go to law school.
The big questions is: Is it worth it?I think not. Perhaps for people right out of ccollege, but not if you’re older. Ties youin for too long.
