    Thanks for providing all the statistics. 2013 is looking grim if the past is going to repeat itself in the employment realm for new grads. I work for a Minneapolis bankruptcy law firm and we often talk about how much the job market has changed for attorneys in the last few decades. It's much harder to break in now, and even starting your own practice as an alternative to finding a job is hard to do and succeed at.

    Glad to see my school Univ. of Baltimore, made one of these lists. What is not on the list however is the number of my classmates who are now Judges, Senators and in other political or State positions. I myself am winding down a successful solo career in family law to pursue other business ventures. But law gives you a great foundation for so many careers.
