While you may think of the American population as generations of litigants, it would appear that this is no longer the situation. America's legal system is apparently shrinking and now thousands of young graduates who went to law school to train as lawyers are no really struggling to find work. This has caused some of these unemployed graduates to take legal action against their law schools!
So I understand, lawyers in Manhattan have filed approximately 14 law suits against law schools on behalf of highly disgruntled graduates! Instead of making it in to the legal profession, these disgruntled graduates have ended up joining the army, working in Starbucks, working as bartenders and even working as golf course labourers.
On average, the US produces 43,000 graduates from law schools each year which equates to twice as many graduates as there are jobs. Naturally the defendant law schools are vehemently contesting the actions and firmly believe these law suits have no foundations.
It will be interesting to see the outcomes of these law suits.
