American Lawyers

Attorney Raoul Felder recently talked about job prospects for lawyers in the WSJ, only partly tongue-in-cheek:

Meanwhile, Congress might consider a bailout plan for lawyers. There are now some 1,162,124 lawyers in the U.S., and the law schools are spewing out graduates at a rate of 43,518 a year, all set adrift upon a public that increasingly wants doesn't have money to pay for their services. There is no other profession more dependent on discretionary spending, except perhaps the oldest one.

Oh, the reality.
