💰 Fewer than half of attorneys say legal education was worth the cost…but 

Most are still happy they’re lawyers! Here’s a rundown of findings from an interesting new study presented in ABA Journal. 

  • Only a small number of recent law school graduates didn’t have any debt. And none of them were Black attorneys. Of attorneys with $200,000 or more of debt, 18% were Black, 14% were white and 7% were Latino. 

  • Just 47% of respondents said law school was worth the cost

  • 61% of respondents, however, said they would do it all over again if they had the chance.
