I spoke with some law school students who were seeking advice about how to direct their careers. I told them how there seems to be a significant uptick in bank lending so someone with Regulation W knowledge will be valuable. A few of the students later emailed me that they are looking into it. One of them told me that the career services office told him that they never heard of Reg W and instead suggested that he go into family law. So if you never heard of it then it is a bad idea?

If you don't have a job at graduation, you are probably more likely to be able to break into family law than a banking regulations practice. Not for a lack of trying, I think Career Services is right, these kids should stay in their lane.

People told me the same thing. While corporate law is definitely not for everyone, it is also not strictly for HYS grads and top 10%. If I listened to people like you, I would be sitting in a dingy basement doing doc review, fighting traffic tickets or arguing sleazy family law motions.

Classic CSO. Steer kids from corporate office work/benefits to sewer firm work with no vacation or health insurance.

The way to capitalize on an uptick in lending is to get a job working for a bank attorney and work your way up to commercial lending. Not to focus on the corporate end of it. An increase in lending isn't likely to increase the need for inhouse bank counsel but rather an increase in transactional counsel.

my bigger issue is that a current uptick is only good for recent graduates. Students need to focus on next year's uptick. I'd recommend 2Ls to look into bankruptcy/foreclosures, the economy always tanks under republican government
