More Students in Law School Than There Are Lawyers

Map of Michigan CountiesEver since I was a kid I have heard that there are more students currently in law school then there are practicing lawyers in our area. I think that this is an urban legend because then law schools may have been out of business a while ago. I am about to enter my first year in law school and while I am excited about practicing, I am very nervous as I am not sure that I want to practice in macomb county family law like my father has been for the past thirty years. I am a mom and I am going from being a stay at home mom with two little ones to a full time college student. My dad has my path figured out for me and has had this plan since I can remember.
