Instead it is a cautionary tale—a tale of woe, really—about pitfalls the medical profession needs to guard against if it wants to avoid reprising the epidemic of de-professionalization and demoralization that has beset lawyers and the legal profession. Simply put, the law is not well. US law school applications are down by nearly half from eight years ago, and 85% of graduates now carry at least $100,000 in debt.
