    Do not go to law school. I have been out 25 years and I will be lucky to bring in 35k. I know many guys, better than me..more skilled practitioners who are on the street looking for work. There are kids from DePaul and Kent taking 50 dollars for a courtappappearance. The Illinois Secretary of State posted openings for two hearing officers to adjudicate license reinstatements and they were overwhelmed with 4000 applications. That was in MT Vernon. Not Chicago!
