Anywhere along the Woodward corridor (skipping Midtown to 8 Mile) would be your best bet - lots of good restaurants, bars, stores - which includes Ferndale, Royal Oak, Huntington Woods, Birmingham...
are you saying married people with children are boring?

Good Info from Bhaalspawn!! I know a guy that retired as a cop, went to a small law school and got into private practice after being laid off from a prosecutor's office (a lot of law school grads go to prosecutor/DA offices to get trial experience) He couldn't make a go of it in private practice. Too many attornies and not enough clients. He tried to get in as a probation officer and didn't make it.

They don't mention the job market at the law school entrance interviews, similar to any college program not making any promises or guarantees for employment upon graduation.

Good Luck!

That is a big part of the problem. Too many small law schools, many of low quality/reputation. No chance of getting a job from there, but they do not tell people that. Some tell them to start their own practice - so we end up with hordes of lawyers with their own practice who have no idea how the system actually works, or what they are supposed to do. Quite a lot of new graduates are taking volunteer legal jobs at public agencies in order to gains some experience and make some contacts. They stay in these positions for years and work a side job, or live with their parents.

Law schools cannot really predict the job market. It can change dramatically in three years. They could tell incoming students whether the graduates from their particular school generally get jobs. However the ones that need to be doing this, would not want to. "Welcome to XXYY Law School. Only 10% of graduates ever find jobs in the legal profession." Instead they often say that 80% of their graduates are employed within 6 months of graduation. They leave out "at McDonalds"

There are jobs i the legal profession. You just need to attend a top 50 or possibly 25 ranked law school (maybe top 10). It also depends on your area. Some law schools are highly regarded regionally but poorly ranked nationally. As long as you stay in the area, you have a good chance to find a job. People who do not find jobs and likely never will are those who graduate with average or below average grades and/or attend bottom tier law schools who accept people with average or below average grades. Some such people will find jobs, or will succeed on their own, but most will not.

I don't know where you live in MI but where I am from it is one of the safest areas. I have lived in NJ,CA,FL and overall MI is the best in terms of safety,affordable for upscale areas,friendly etc.
