Why is it so hard for lawyers to find work?

Why don’t doctors and dentists have the same problem?

    I tried contacting over a dozen attorneys, but none will respond. They don't want to work.

    Many people go their whole life without needing a lawyer

    Only a few can say that about a Doctor

    Actually they do and for the same reason.

    Too many practitioners and not enough clients.

    Supply and demand. While the AMA lobbies to keep med school admissions small (to preserve the prestige of the title) law schools have no artificial limits to class size. The US currently has a severe shortage of doctors but a massive glut of lawyers.

    too many attorneys is the likely cause.

    Graduates who graduate with good grades can ALWAYS find work. It's the ones who graduated at the bottom of the scale who have trouble finding work working for someone else. If you owned a law firm, would you hire someone who barely graduated and had to sit the bar 3 times before he passed? You wouldn't think twice to hire a Harvard graduate or someone who graduated with high marks, in the 90s and passed the bar first go, would you? That's EXACTLY how it is.

    The legal profession is the equivalent of a medical profession that creates diseases in order to provide employment for doctors.

    That is why they are held in such contempt --they cause most of the problems that we are then forced to pay them ,to solve .

    Its probably because of the lawyer's high prices. Lots of folks can't afford them.
