Starting salaries at big firms may be entering the stratosphere, but prospects aren't the same for less than top-tier graduates, the Wall Street Journal reports in a front-page story today.
Apparently, some graduates of second-tier law schools are having more trouble finding work, and are receiving salaries that don't offset their six-digit educational debt. And some say media reports of $160,000 starting salaries for first-year associates are feeding a misconception that such riches await all law school graduates. The article also raises questions about whether law schools are adequately warning graduates that they may not make big money right out of school.
Does this hold true in the Washington job market?
