Leora Maccabee's Post Bar Exam Blues Article Published in MSBA's Hearsay Newsletter

December 14, 2009

An article by Leora Maccabee titled "Beware of the Post Bar Exam Blues" was published in the Fall 2009 Edition of the Minnesota State Bar Association's New Lawyers Section Hearsay Newsletter. The article addresses the challenges experienced by 2009's class of newly minted JDs and lawyers as they attempt to enter the job market during one of the worst economic periods in recent history.

Maccabee writes, "More than ever, members of this class of grads are worrying about how they are going to pay their bills, whether they have to move back in with their parents, whether they can find a job at their skill level, and, if they were lucky enough to snag a job, whether it's secure in this economy." She goes on to cite resources to help new lawyers find their footing, such as law school career services office, the MSBS's New Lawyers Section, and Minnesota's Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, closing with the suggestion that anyone feeling a bit of the blues, "sit down, evaluate and develop an action plan for the most important client you will ever have - yourself."
