After the J.D. Update at AALS

Another positive note:   One of the AALS Annual Meeting Hot Topic/Bridge Program sessionsAfter the JD: A Look at the Evolving Careers of Lawyers Who Entered Practice in 2000  discussed the new (3rd?) round of results from the American Bar Foundation’s important longitudinal study.   I was only able to pop in for a few minutes, but was heartened to hear that the overall news is encouraging, including for graduates of lower tier law school on both employment and salary fronts, despite significant concerns around the progress of minority lawyers. Even Bill Henderson said something like “Gee, maybe things really aren’t so bleak.” Chime in with details if you were able to attend the entire program!
