Joshua Quoted in Wall Street Journal

My younger brother Joshua, who is the Associate Dean for Career Services at the University of Richmond School of Law, is quoted in today's Wall Street Journal article Hard Case: Job Market Wanes for U.S. Lawyers:


The University of Richmond School of Law in the last couple of years started to be more open about its employment statistics; it now breaks out how many of its grads work as contract attorneys. Of 57 2006 graduates working in private practice, for example, seven were contract employees nine months after graduation. Schools "should be sharing more information than they are now," says Joshua Burstein, associate dean for career services who put the changes in place. "Most people graduating from law school," he says, "are not going to be earning big salaries."
