That was a joke ... yeah, law is deleveraging like everything else and boy is it a disaster right now.
As to IT ... sure, if you like it. Better to find out HOW you like to work, since that will save you a lot of hassle. Here would be my cheat sheet:
* Are you introverted or extraverted? Note: introvert doesn't mean shy! i.e., do group events TAKE energy from you or give you energy?
* Are you strategic or operations? ie., if you're an "idea guy" with a messy desk you're strategy, if you're detail oriented and organize stuff you're ops
* Do you DRIVE change or fight it? ie., do people who bring up a new way of doing something familiar piss you off or intrigue you?
Only a real job can tell you that stuff and only if you're aware of what you're trying to find out.
Everybody will recommend what they like but really everyone has to find out what they like for themselves. The faster they do that the faster they'll make big dough no matter what field.
BTW - here's a quick and dirty Briggs-Meyers test that help answer those questions:
