Everyday is a cloudy day in the life of a disenchanted lawyer.

Yes, this certainly is the good life. Working in chicken commodities while commuting two hours each way to volunteer for a legal job. That certainly wasn't in the law school brochure.
LMAO! I don't even know what chicken commodities is.. but it sounds damn funny!
I wonder if working for free counts as "employed" for the law school cartel.
I'm sure it does count as employed. After all, squeezing one's butt cheeks across the stripper pole counts as employment in most schools. Then again, these adult entertainers/performers are doing MUCH BETTER than the majority of lawyers.
Sounds like a win win situation to me. Well, unless you spent 100K for law school and need to eat. Maybe a six-month unpaid post bar internship will become the norm.
Dipshit law grads think that experience will help them find a job in the future.. since there is a hiring freeze in NJ. But they don't realize that lawyer employers are such dicks that they will figure out a way to minimize or distiguish that legal experience and it will somehow work against them. And they spend get to get to "work" will be a loss. Best to stay home.
I hope the animals who run the law schools and profit from the misery they cause are pleased with this. This is beyond belief. Commutes 4 hours a day to work for free!
Chicken commodities? He'd be better off just staying home and choking the chicken than commuting for this "job".
The dean seems to think this is a good thing. I think it makes his school look pretty worthless. After 3 years of LS, unpaid internships, tens of thousands of dollars worth of debt, and you are qualified for yet another unpaid internship. If lawyers had a real union they would not allow this. Once we start giving away our professional services, we don't have a whole hell of a lot left to sell. Way to step in and take a side ABA.
epic laugh.I will laugh too when people start paying for volunteering positions
Do work with the state and volunteer. Pretty soon doc review will be free too
I thought that working for free was illegal under wage and hour law unless you do it as an internship for school credit.
What are you? European?
Not anonymous cause law is salaried, as a profession, not by the hour, so you can work for free. Yay.As far as paying, I've heard rumors that people pay to get bumped up the waitlist for volunteer positions. Great degree this thing is.
