Why I Don't Envy Rising 2Ls

For many law students out there, things are looking a bit like no man's land between the trenches, 1916.

How could it not...when tuition is being raised almost 25% at one law school...another school is trying to defer incoming 1L students...the recruiting options this fall for 2L summer positions are diminished, laughable, and, in some cases, nearly nonexistent...and even if you do land a summer job in an already reduced-size summer class, you may not start work until two years after graduation...and you will probably do so at a reduced rate of pay...with a great deal of debt?
