One Way to Keep Lawyer Numbers Down

Willens Law Offices, based in Chicago, is offering an “Anything But Law School Graduate Scholarship” worth $1,000.

“Some of you may be wondering, why would a law firm create a scholarship to dissuade students from practicing law?” Matthew Willens wrote in the online press release. “The answer is simple; we currently do not have enough jobs to be able to effectively train the current number of freshly minted lawyers in our profession. To protect the reputation of our profession, Willens Law Offices has created this scholarship to persuade undergraduates to pursue another graduate degree for a limited time.”
