LOL? I think the current batch of law students have bigger problems on their hands than simply dealing with incompetent HR personnel.

Well, MinLaw should use this opportunity to create an oversupply of lawyers, this would cause legal fees to fall, and greater access for legal services.

its nothing much to complain about. Even with the paycuts, the starting salaries are still higher than 95% of graduates from other disciplines (with the remaining 5% being the top tier finance people). It's also still higher than what most graduated would be making, even after 5 years of work experience.

True...Salary still higher than most professions. In the past, starting pay was around 5k on average. Perhaps, 4.5-4.8k now.
