Less Lawyers in Law School Than Walking the Earth

One of my favorite movie scenes comes from The Devil's Advocate staring Al Pacchino and Keanu Reeves.  (Directed by Taylor Hackford. Written by Jonathan Lemkin and Tony Gilroy, based on a novel by Andrew Neiderman).   After reading the article below perhaps John Milton switched professions?  
Why law schools are losing relevance — and how they’re trying to win it back

Dialogue from The Devil's Advocate 

Kevin Lomax: Why the law? Cut the shit, Dad! Why the lawyers? Why the law?

John Milton: Because the law, my boy, puts us into everything. It's the ultimate backstage pass. It's the new priesthood, baby. Did you know there are more students in law school than lawyers walking the Earth?

Kevin Lomax: You made me do it!

John Milton: No, I don't work that way, Kevin.
