In her new book, Ann gives some great advice about how to make the decision about whether to go to law school.
Among other topics, she covers:
-how to decide whether law school is right for you
-how much money lawyers actually make
-how to pick a law school
-how to decide which area of law to specialize in
-how to decide whether to go into BigLaw, solo practice, or alternate careers
Among the most important aspects of Ann's book is the fact that she devotes a good deal of space in her book to the fact that many of you will take on significant student loan debt in order to pay your law school tuition.
Ann surveyed more than 300 practicing attorneys about their experiences, both with regard to the practice of law and with regard to current economic realities.
In short, her book is a welcome response to the many recent articles about the current state of the legal profession and will be a much-needed dose of reality to those whose reasons for attending law school stem primarily from John Grisham novels and To Kill a Mockingbird.
