Law School Attendance Continues to Plummit

Im sure many people will love this -- the New York Times is resporting that law school enrollment is down to numbers not seen since the 1987!  That's crazy.  Of course, there are many people who love to make fun of lawyers, and the love to point out that the world would be better off without them.  But, I think in reality, lawyers are very important to the world.   For instance, in 1215, a group of barons forced King John to sign the Magna Carta.  This legal document made it clear that the law -- and not the king -- woill control the land.  Of course, these barons were in effect lawyers and made it so that democracy would lead and not some tyrant.  Thus, here, lawyers did a good job.   And, jumping ahead, more than half of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were - you guessed it -- lawyers.  In any event, less lawyers, in my opinion, is not a good thing.  There are many lawyers out there who help the disadvantaged.  There are lawyers in housing courts that work for free.  Criminal prosecuters work for little money.  There are lawyers in the legal aid.  It will be these lawyers that go missing and thus it will have a much greater impact on those in our society that need lawyers' help.  Hopefully, trends will change, and people will begin again to enter this noble -- and ancient -- profession.
