Students See Rosy Future; Chutzpah Surveyed

Talk about nervy audacity.

Those who want to become lawyers feel the poor economy will hurt their rivals, but not themselves, according to a survey of pre-law students.

That brash self-confidence is shared by 52% of aspiring lawyers, who look to the future of the legal profession and law practice with great optimism.

“Pre-law students’ confidence in their own job prospects are likely an indication not just of self-assurance, but of their optimism in an economic turnaround,” said Jeff Thomas, director of pre-law programs, Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions, which prepared the suvey based on responses from 330 students. “What’s interesting is the drop-off in confidence in their peers, which perhaps may just be an indication of the general competitive atmosphere.”
