Lawyer demographics

Interesting data shared by Bill Henderson on the demographics of the legal profession. The numbers are showing a trend, which is not generally a positive one – namely, the graying of the profession. Put simply, although (until recently), law school attendance numbers have remained high, the number of lawyers under age 35 has been going down.

Henderson has a couple hypothesis on why this may be, all of which have potentially disturbing implications on the future of the bar, although by his own admission, he doesn’t profess to have all the answers.
