Why gay marriage won’t become law at the Supreme Court

I am strongly in favor of same sex marriage and I think the arguments against it are all ridiculous. And I’ll bet that one day those who oppose it will be viewed the same way that those who were in favor of segregation are now considered. But I don’t think the Supreme Court is going... Read more »

Is law school worth the cost?

Is law school worth the cost?
I was fortunate enough not to have to pay for all of law school, but even with that I ended up with around $20,000 in student loans which was one year’s worth of tuition. This was in 1997.
