I just graduated from law school. Before taking my bar exam, would like to know what is the job market in SC. Am I considering the right place to relocate? I do not want to work insane hours as lawyers usually do even if I get lower salary. Thus, I am not seeing myself as living in a pricy area. Ideally, I would love to get a satisfying position, have a cosy house, eventualy meet someone special, start my family, kids, work part-time. I love my profession, however, I love having my life as well. But, would I be able to have both in Charleston?

What area of law are you going to practice? Having been a former litigation attorney myself, I don't know many areas of the practice that allow you to work less hours. There are a good deal of real estate law firms in and around the Charleston area. If I ever get back into law, I'll be doing residential and commercial closings and making a great living at it.
