ABA Journal Study: Only 55 Percent Of 2011 Law Graduates Have Full-Time Jobs

Get ready gang. I'm starting to expand the coverage of this humble blog beyond just IPO alternatives, the economy and the smallcap markets. We will be talking more about things like Wall Street in general, the legal industry, entrepreneurship (the subject of my next book which I'm writing) and other things of interest to both my historical readership and hopefully newbies as well. Will I change the name of it? Don't know and probably not. We'll see. And let me know if it's stuff you like or if you might like to see my musings on other things.
