The Kansas City Star has a story about two recent law school grads who, unable to find a law firm to hire them, decided to take the risky step of hanging out their own shingle.

Sarah Buckley and Alexandra Hutchings took a leap that few new lawyers would consider.

After graduating from the University of Missouri-Kansas City law school and passing the Missouri Bar exam last year, they rented office space and hung out a shingle.

“It’s scary,” said Buckley, sitting behind a tidy desk in her firm’s Northland office. “We don’t know if we’ll have a paycheck every month.”

When they couldn’t find work with someone else, Buckley and Hutchings decided working for themselves would be better than not working.

The question remains, though, whether they are an exception or — as more law school grads find a serious shortage of law firm jobs — the start of a trend.
