In the latest issue of the National Jurist, Professor Aaron Taylor of St. Louis University (pictured at right) gives 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.
