NY Law Journal: New Law Grads Benefit from Less Competition for Legal Jobs

Written by Harlan York May 13, 2015

As I noted in my book, The New York Times had previously reported a lower population of law students in recent years.

I responded in Three Degrees of Law that this “Thinner Herd” makes for a greater chance to get accepted into a position with a law firm or other career opportunity.

Now comes word from The New York Law Journal that I was apparently on to something.

Essentially, the latest class of  Law School graduates are finding less competition in the Legal Job Market.

So, while I am not ready to call myself a visionary, I am pleased to see that once again Three Degrees of Law contains valuable information for attorneys and students.
