Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
Eric J. Parker, co-founder and Managing Partner of Parker | Scheer LLP was recently appointed by Massachusetts Bar Association President Richard P. Campbell, to Co-Chair a task force that was created in response to law school grads having difficulty finding jobs in the current Massachusetts economy.
The task force will examine root causes for the perceived over-supply of graduates, along with potential solutions to benefit unemployed graduates, the Massachusetts legal system, and the community. “Law schools do not prepare their graduates for practice, and the three-year model is unduly expensive and broken,” Campbell said in a recent article in Massachusetts Lawyers Journal.
In the same article, Parker discussed the over abundance of lawyers in Massachusetts “Law schools are feeding more lawyers into a system that has no demand. The oversupply of newly minted lawyers who cannot land a job is a problem that has widespread consequences. Many of those new lawyers are setting up their own law offices completely unsupervised and with no experience practicing law or handling a case. It’s going to impact the judiciary. It’s going to impact the community,” he explained.
