How bad is the job market for lawyers (especially with T6 degrees)?

Peaking probably 2 or 3 years ago, tales of employment doom for lawyers were everywhere across the internet, with various stories of newly-minted graduates who were $150-200k in debt and either jobless, or working at 40-60k/year jobs where they could never pay back their debt. I remember reading predictions that this wasn't merely a usual and temporary fluctuation, but was a sign of a permanent contraction in the legal job market. I was speaking with an acquaintance who recently graduated from Harvard Law School, who told me that in her opinion, the negativity was overblown, and everyone that she knew in her graduating class had either a job or a fellowship without too much difficulty. This got me wondering whether the situation now is still as bleak as it was a couple of years ago - for lawyers generally, but especially for lawyers from top schools. Are lawyers generally still in such difficult straits in terms of finding a job? [more inside]

Legal Writing and Advocacy

Hi , I was wondering if any mefiers could help advise me on potentially choosing a certain module for my llb (undergraduate law) option. I was thinking of choosing the legal writing and advocacy option, but I am not sure. Has anyone any idea of what is usually expected in a module such as this? It strikes me as an option very similar that provided in American law schools. How are these usually assessed? The naive bone in me is entertaining the prospect of a slightly less harsh marking criteria compared to the substantive core modules I shall be studying as well; but I could be wrong. My course book mentions the break down of the module as follows: Legal Writing and Advocacy: - Reflective Learning Journal (40%) - Response to Consultation Document (30%) - Oral Presentation 1 - (15%) - Oral Presentation 2 - (15%) [more inside]
