The following link was provided to me by a student. The video falls in the same category as “A Coloring Book for Lawyers,” which I mentioned in my previous post, in that the video presents a satirical and also despondent take on the life of a law student. Depending on your perspective, it is quite well put together.
WARNING: There is some mild profanity in this excerpt (i.e., scatological humor).
I think what is notable about this commentary beyond its humor is its accuracy in describing a generational shift from law school once being a noble rite of passage leading inevitably to a secure profession, and now being an uncertain, debt-laden, soul-numbing gamble. Is this hyperbole? Yes. Does it point to some level of real experience? I suspect so.
