HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: These days, a law degree comes with $150,000 of debt — and no guarantee of a job after graduation. “I know that I am better off than a lot of these younger lawyers. I get job interviews. I can afford the apartment I share with my friend. I have a great resume. I am an excellent researcher and writer. I rarely go to bed hungry anymore.”

Plus: “Approximately half of the 45,000 people who will graduate this year from ABA-accredited law schools will never find jobs as lawyers. . . . All this adds up to a completely unsustainable system.” And yet most of those law schools are on campuses with sustainability centers.

If only there were something that explained this phenomenon.
