Get our Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist (FREE) here ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw Learn learn how to get ready for law school, the 5 things you must do the summer before law school, and more . . . Law school is a big investment. Even if you have a full ride scholarship, you are still investing three full years of your life in the pursuit of becoming a lawyer. And these are not three dreamy years of relaxing on the beach. Oh no, law students routinely talk about law school as the most stressful time of their entire lives. And for most students the financial investment is very large. When law school is $60,000 per year plus living expenses, it’s no surprise that law students often graduate with over $200,000 in law school debt alone. So bottom line, law school costs a lot of money and take a lot of time. But is it worth it? The payoffs can be huge. Some first year associate salaries at big firms are up to $190,000 per year. Being a lawyer can be a great vocation. But it’s not for everyone. In this video we’re going to talk about who will get the most out of law school. We’ll talk about who should not under any circumstances go to law school. We’ll talk about the economics of the huge upfront costs of law school and law school debt. And most importantly we’ll talk about when it’s worth it to make the plunge. ======================================================== If you want to learn to THINK LIKE A LAWYER and ACE YOUR NEXT EXAM, check out our LAW SCHOOL MASTERCLASS at https://www.legaleagleprep.com/masterclass ======================================================== ★ Got law school questions?

I hope he replies, I think apprenticeships are great in the states that allow them. If there is a well respected lawyer who takes on an apprentice, working under them may gain more respect/opportunities than a prestigious law school.
MoeJohnson (14 days ago)
what do you think of law apprenticeships? A couple states allow you to take the bar without law school
What do you think of going to school online majoring to be a paralegal? Off the topic, I know, just thought I asked.

Are law school debts collectable if you leave the country? Some people gained residence and eventually citizenship in another country and became student loan exiles, I know federal student loans are not. For those with a $200k student debt that is not getting them jobs might have to think about that.

Hey LeagleEagle, I dig the video. What are the things that make becoming an attorney worth it for you? If it's not a slam dunk to bring in big$ and it's not as glamorous as you see on t.v. and if it means so much hard work and long hours, what is in the other column to balance this all out? I know you have to have a strong desire and a high level of commitment, but what is that even based on? Keep up the good work!

You can technically buy 10 house for 300k that can cashflow at least $2500-3000 a month passive income while being a sleep instead slaving yourself to a corporate firm for the rest of your life. I would never consider becoming a lawyer again.

Thank you for being brutally honest about if one should go to law school. Most of the people who talk about university rarely give the truth that you need to be completely set to become a doctor, lawyer, economy person or what ever you study in university. If you arent, then dont go. Tbh if they were then we wouldnt have that many universities/colleges..

3 YEARS!? In my country at least is 5 years, and in some private universities is 7 years
every video, save for this one, has been excellent. but comparing median income versus median entry level income are not comparable. entry level college graduate versus entry level attorney salaries... sure.

The problem with law and med school is that it only teaches you how to be a good lawyer or doctor. What it doesnt teach you is how to be a good business person. Marketing, sales, negotiating, socializing, networking, administration, managing time, people and finances, learning new software and IT skills, etc etc...these are all things not taught at Harvard law yet vital to being a successful lawyer. What gets you a cushy big firm gig though...its not so much that you graduate from Yale or your GPA...its that you graduated from a school who has a large donating alumni base so you are more likely to know alot of other successful people and their friends and family that you can call on for business immediately...the applicant with the better network wins the job

What’s your opinion about working in public service as an attorney and taking advantage of the 10 year loan forgiveness? It puts you on the same 10 year timeline you describe for having your loans resolved but doesn’t necessarily require you to be top 10% and graduating from a top 10 law school.

I’m interested in dual national law degrees (specifically one that is taught half in France and half in the US). I’ve met various people here who have studied French/Italian law or French/German law or French/British law. What kind of law, though, would someone practice with that kind of qualification? I have heard it sort of restricts to only ever being a corporate lawyer

Yeah be a quack that sprinkles a few Latin based terminology on a "My client isn't guilty due to lex ignoramus" sentence to sound smart, and hands down biased judgment on a situation they didn't experience firsthand. Basically an internet argumentative laden person with a suit and a piece of paper. Most lawyers don't have regular high paying clients or millionaires all at their heels throwing thousands at them. Most cant even get into those prestigious law firms and end up struggling with student loan debt and hate their careers.

Some Physical Therapy graduate school programs charge $45,000/yr for tuition, and that also lasts 3 years. A Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) - even mid-career - usually makes about the same or even less than a Registered Nurse (RN) - from as low as $40,000/yr to $90,000/yr. The only way to make "Doctor" money is to start and own your own outpatient care facility, in addition to teaching part-time at a university graduate program and contribute to major research projects. To put it in perspective, software engineers can make between $90,000 to $180,000/yr far easier without even needing a Bachelors. Software Testers - people who literally click buttons to make sure they work and find ways to break the software - can make between $70,000/yr and up to $140,000/yr.

In the uk it’s £9,250 per year for three years and then for Legal Practice course (LPC) it’s around £11,000. Then maintainance is around £8,000 a year for living costs, food etc. THEN after all that you have to pray that you get a training contact for 2 years. This is just for a solicitor. To become a barrister it is a similar but much longer process

I like the Euros that brag about “free education” - sure - European Union countries are subsidized by massive debt so a “cheap” degree with a very low bar of success... one stands a better chance of getting modestly paid to in the utilization of that degree... but when the currency comes crashing down and there is no more “free” money those “free money jobs” will also dry up faster than you can say “Why?” (And, when you think of it, why should a guy with a REAL job as a plumber or a construction worker be paying taxes to send spoiled brats to college - that they never had s chance to get into - and then PAY more taxes to make sure there are government subsidized “jobs” to employ people with meaningless (cheap) degrees???

Looking it up, the average salary in LA (per indeed.com) is $86,782/yr. Generally these are salaried jobs that give you a stable job and reasonable work/life balance. Think city/county lawyers. Let's assume you are statistically middling and land one of these jobs. Take out (optimistically) 30% for taxes, and law-talkin' will net you a cool extra ~$1200/mo in cash above and beyond the ~$65k you can make with just an undergrad degree. Nothing to sneeze at, but that bump probably barely covers your interest on your debt. Furthermore, I would say the wage gap between $65k non-lawyering and $85k lawyering is mostly due to taking on more responsibility, and not simply from having a shiny framed piece of paper that says you passed the bar. For people who work for a living, you don't get paid for knowing stuff, you are paid commensurately with your ability to execute at your job, and the level of responsibility you take on. If you are good in your field, you can certainly match that average lawyer's salary as long as you are willing to put in the hours and take the responsibility. Anyway, I've considered taking lawyering on as a second career, but at the end of the day I'm not passionate about it, and as I said, I'd end up working just as hard for a similar amount of money.
beerisgood760 (19 days ago)
Objection! You compared household income vs the median lawyer's income. That's not a fair comparison and misleading as you compared a single person's average income vs 2 people in most cases. The U.S Bureau of the Census has the annual real median personal income at $31,099 in 2016. So lawyers actually make over double the salary of the average American.
beerisgood760 (3 days ago)
For the love of god, he compared a SINGLE lawyers income vs a freaking household's income. I'm not pointing out a discrepancy mean vs median, I'm pointing out the difference of comparing multiple incomes vs a single freaking income. He used MEDIAN averages for both, as anyone who compares income averages does in order to account for OUTLIERS. I cannot possibly explain this any better than this. I have no idea why you all are getting this mean vs median argument from. The keyword was HOUSEHOLD. I'm afraid I'm all out of crayons to explain this any further.
FallingJinx (4 days ago)
median is actually a good stat- it means half of people make below, and half of people make above. Mean(average) is more affected by outliers, and probably is not the right stat to use. By using the median, one can estimate how they relate to a population easily
Jamie G (8 days ago)
JGdownunder median isn’t average median is middle, mean is average
beerisgood760 (12 days ago)
What the heck are you talking about? I said he compared household income vs a single person's. Also, the reason economists use median instead of mean when calculating income averages is precisely because of outliers. I'm sorry but what you just said shows me that you have no idea what you're talking about, and I find it hard to believe that you can make any sort of meaningful contribution to this discussion.
JGdownunder (13 days ago)
Median != average, it's the middle value; and you need to realise the median and average is brought down a lot by saturation of people at the absolute lowest class like ghettos and prisoners etc, and brought up by incredibly rich business owners, CEO's etc, so you end up with this huge weird spread. It's not always good to compare to the entire population data, but compare with data that pertains to your socio-economic class, and he's right in that if you're the kind of person capable of getting into a good law school and becoming an attorney, you'll probably make more than 60k a year anyways

These are BIG law firms. But this is what a lot of people don't realise. They see the pay cheques and they see that the guys that receive the pay cheques are in suits sitting in boardrooms etc and think there's somehow a problem with the system. You have to be bloody mentally ill to do these jobs though. The people at the TOP of the BIG law firms often work more like 80 hours a week.

If everything goes by plan, then I will be graduating law school (an university in Brussels, Belgium) this year. I really loved it, but it irks me immensely when people say, ah you went to law school so will become a lawyer. I’m sorry, but no. There are a lot of other interesting jobs that require a law degree without becoming a lawyer or an attorney. Me for example wants to become a public prosecutor. Or you can be a legal advisor in a firm or ... For the rest good video. Law is fun if you enjoy it. Don’t do it for your mom, dad or... Do it for yourself

I was listening to you in this video on the SMART TV while I was busy thinking about something else closer to home and after hearing enough of, "Getting into law is a load of arse: don't bother. ...just go get a regular job and be realistic." I paused the video to write this comment. Yes the law is indeed a load of garbage as are the hoops that we are supposed to feel aggrandised jumping through in order so it seems to land a job in law. Your videos on lawyer show analyses are entertaining and kill a few minutes of time in each case however a focus placed on the notion that precedents made by humans - who at birth freely defecate in their pants - can in some way be accepted as true and correct and in some way noble - given the hoops and defecation - leaves me highly surprised. I've watched several of your videos on analysis and only now felt a need to write a response: with the preceding presentations only seemingly requiring a thumbs up to indicate approval; and nothing further. From what I can gather, the implementation of law in the courtroom seems to engender nothing more than a generous amount of hubris, wrapped-up in pseudo-religious attire.

Elina T (15 days ago)
Yes, but those are a dime a dozen as well these days...especially if you are talking internationally. You shouldn’t do any degree because it’s a ‘cheap ticket’ up the ladder, but because it is something you want to do... be it software development, law or anything else.
Milligram (15 days ago)
Yeah, it's more important that you care about software development and want to be the best you can be. EDIT: I would also like to add that you will have a lot of control over your career. There is a progression from lowly coder to manager to boss and maybe even starting and running your own company. The competition isn't nonexistant but not enormous either and as long as you want to make this journey, you can. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the same can be said for the legal profession.

NO.. LAW and Medicine are apples and oranges.....Medicine is very scientific  and mathematical  while Law is not....Simply put, Laws are reference to your rights...rules of the game to a civilized life...Everyone should know the rules without monetary burden....imagine playing a game where no one tells you the rules until its over....Strategy then, becomes deception.  So why complexity?  Money.

I see a lot of people comparing education prices in the U.S. with other countries (Brazil, Italy, Sweden) Guys, America has the best education programs and the best universities in the world, probably create the best practicioners and if you want a job at a top company, let's say you want to be an investment banker and you want to work at JP Morgan, its worth to pay for your MBA in Wharton, cause its the best way (if not the only one) to get there America is the elite of most jobs I think, only comparable to the U.K. so far, they can affort to charge that much because they have so much demand each year and graduates usually say that its worth it

After having watched a bunch of these videos (count me among the spectators entertained but questioning why they’re here) I’m convinced this guy is multi tasking. Sure he’s making great videos but he’s also using this to polish his public speaking skills and writing outlines for the topic flow. This guys a legend.

Hey! Similar to you, I’ve always wanted to be a lawyer. I’m in my senior year of high school, and I’m at a 3.3 cumulative gpa and have scored 1200 on the SAT. So, my college options are limited. I’m also in the lower middle class, so paying may be a problem. I’ve also looked at colleges minimally, and I need to get on top of it. Do you think it would be beneficial to just intern in a law firm instead? If so, how would I go about doing that? Thanks!

Lol, in the Netherlands, no matter what you studie, you pay €2000 per year. You study German? €2000. Law? €2000. Is it worth it?

Sounds like it's cheaper to qualify in another country then come back and do whatever extra training is needed to get admitted

In Scotland every single resident (5 years or more) could theoretically obtain a law degree for nothing in the form of a government grant. The cost of a law degree here is about £1,800 ($2375) per year for 3 or 4 years. The numbers you put up were nauseating, I don’t think I could put up with that.
