And You Thought Finding a Law Job Was Difficult in the U.S.

In this week’s edition of “Be Glad You Don’t Live in China”:
Above the Law reports that law students in China are apparently like history majors in the United States: completely, abjectly unemployable. In the last two years, legal jobs have been the hardest to get in China, mostly because there are just too many lawyers. Supply and demand, you see.
Of course, the issue for China is that law is an undergraduate field of study. If law were an undergraduate subject at UCLA, for example, we estimate 85% of humanities students would at some point major in it. Apparently, the lack of limiting factors on how many people can choose the legal major at Chinese institutions has caused the current issue.
So there you have it. The LSAT is truly what separates the United States from Communism.
