That really sucks. Damn the economy! I hope you find something better soon.
I don't know what to think. But you can't start your own practice (99.9% of the time) right out of law school because you need to be evaluated by your peers.
But, unless you have credentials or a good network, you won't get a job as a lawyer even in a GOOD market.
I know a couple law grads that make a living as bartenders (well, they partnered up to buy the bar later so that's a good step).
Not everyone will work for a living under the designation as their post-secondary degree, this includes doctors and engineers and scientists. You have to get over it and keep moving forward.
I have an electrical engineering degree. The demand for it is low, even in a good market. I went back to school, I'm currently working as a hockey official (referee) because I enjoy/love the game.
Do what you love and keep taking steps forward, that's all you can do in life. Do that and you should make some breaks for yourself. Good luck!
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
