We leverage the power of thousands of attorney trait profiles, instantly, to help a student answer the one simple question that underlies many of the woes in the legal industry - Should I Be A Lawyer?
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
Law School can be an expensive gamble, so The Right Profile just released ShouldIBeALawyer.com to help prospective students find out if they are a good fit mentally for a career in law long before money is spent on prep courses and tuition. Student debt loads are increasing and graduates want to be sure that their job prospects will support the six-figures of debt that many will have at graduation. Few graduate programs have been as hard hit as law, where a continued decreased demand for legal services from law firms has resulted in high unemployment rates for recent law school graduates and many experienced attorneys. Increased competition for available jobs has also driven down salaries and driven many recent law school graduates to lower-paying jobs in the public sector and broader markets. That turmoil has also led to a sharp decrease in enrollment for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) as well as law schools over the past five years. In fact, applications to take the LSAT and applications to law school have dropped for the past five years straight.
The decline in law school applications could be a boon for many prospective students, since a smaller application pool means that fewer students are fighting for spots at top schools. But the potential downside is staggering, as the average law school debt load now exceeds $120,000 for those students taking out loans. Making matters worse is the fact that multiple national surveys show that roughly half of all lawyers would not choose to go into law if they had the chance to make the decision over again and 57% of lawyers leave law firms altogether before their 5th year of practice.
So, how do you know if you should go to law school? How do you know if law school is a smart investment of your time and money?
Although they are best known for their work helping high-profile professional sports teams evaluate and develop athletic talent, The Right Profile is now focusing some of its predictive analytics on the legal industry. According to co-founder, Mark Levin, “the legal industry needs serious help, and we seem to be the only company with the necessary data and analytics to help determine an individual’s potential fit and likelihood of success for a career in law.” Shouldibealawyer.com leverages the data that The Right Profile gathered in the world’s largest online attorney trait study (attorneyassessment.com) using the company’s proprietary Sheffield Legal Assessment. From there, the company ran similar analytics to those which help professional sports teams draft top talent. Levin continues, “We now understand more about “fit” for the profession of law, individual practice areas and even practice settings than any other individual or company in the world. We leverage the power of thousands of attorney trait profiles, instantly, to help a student answer the one simple question that underlies many of the woes in the legal industry - Should I Be A Lawyer?”
