“Over the last few years, the legal profession has greatly changed. The economic downturn has been rough on many markets, and law is no exception. Despite the difficulty the craft has faced, a number of changes, and prospective changes could arguably be for the better.

1. Potential Loss of the LSAT
Over the last few months, we’ve heard a lot of talk about ABA law schools doing away with the Law School Admissions Test. For years, this test has been a key component in law school admission. Many feel it has nothing to do with law school, or what is learned there. We kinda concur. Of course there must be a rubric of some sort to make selections, but looking at one’s overall resume, personal statement, grades, and all candidates have to offer might be better than a test which leaves everyone puzzled when they leave.

2. Summer Associate Positions are Fading
Working as a summer associate between law school years was a staple in the law school experience. Because of the recent economic downturn, we have seen summer associate positions virtually disappear. For firms still able to have associates, the amount they host and keep after graduation has unfortunately decreased. Doing more with less, we are seeing much different experiences for today’s law students.” Full story on B.A.F.F.L.E.D.
