Less people are applying to law schools. There have been 12.2 percent fewer applications submitted this year than last, as of Jan 14. Probably another sign of recovery, that people aren't wanting so much to ride out the recession in grad school, but also a sign of growing disenchantment with law school as a path to riches, says Catherine Rampell of the NYT's Economix blog.
