It's actually worse.

However, I have read a similar article from the NYTimes from about 1991 or so. But it's much worse this time, for a lot of complicating factors that no one on here gives a shit about.

Well, the fact is that any decent law school can prepare you for a career in family law. Some lawyers just fall into it as a result of professional experience over time.
