Technological progress moves ahead rapidly. Law moves ahead very slowly. You can identify legal job opportunities in the chasm created by the different speeds at which technology and law travel.

You do yourself a huge disservice if you accept as gospel the incessant braying of the legal media – and more recently the mainstream media – that law school is a big waste of time and money because there are no jobs available at the other end. Hogwash! If you are a regular reader of this Law Careers blog, you know that this is simply untrue.
