People wonder why long hours, low pay, no respect fails to draw applicants.

Facetious headline aside, there's actually something new I didn't know in this recent article out of Springfield, IL: the correct term is apparently "Illinoisians". Who knew?

Onto the actual article: a study in Illinois found that the mounting cost of law school combined with the low salaries of legal services jobs prevents lawyers from taking jobs in those fields. Not exactly a stunning revelation.

I suppose these studies have to be done to have concrete evidence that a thesis is correct. However, in cases like this where an idea seems so obvious, it seems that the money could have been better spent on legal help for the poor, rather than the study.
