I've just been invited to be on the college's "Law School Advisory Committee." In responding to the invitation, I said I would be happy to be on the committee but that I have some strong opinions for students considering law school. I think the profession and those counseling prospective law students rarely speak as honestly as we need to about incurring a big debt burden to go to law school, and what that can mean. I loved law school, and I liked practicing law, but I like coaching sailing a whole lot better. Do you really want me on this committee? And they said, yes, we do. This should be interesting.
