All this equilibrium talk is rank idiocy considering that current annual placement is running at 55% to 60% and even the law-school apologia put out by S&M over the summer stated that only about 60% of *all* law school grads work in the profession.

So the actual question really is - When will the artificially induced multi-decade surplus of JDs be worked off?

*That* is the only question that matters.
