Why law school is still worth it

In the latest issue of the National Jurist, Professor Aaron Taylor of St. Louis University (pictured at right) Taylorgives reasons why law school is still a good investment. In the current weak economy, lawyers’ incomes are still good—the median income for 2010 was $113,000, and the median starting salary was $63,000. Taylor also argues that a law degree is helpful in many good jobs that do not actually require a J.D.  And the current decreased number of applications means an individual applicant may have a better chance of being admitted to the school of his or her choice.
