“You Can Do Anything With a Law Degree” Slate

Please note the quotation marks for the headline. The subtitle for the piece by Jim Saska is "That’s what everyone says. Turns out everyone’s wrong." 

In my opinion, one of the problems with a job applicant with a law degree applying for a nonlawyer position is that the applicant is considered overqualified.

This is really disheartening.  Do you think it is true that employers outside of law think lawyers are too expensive even if they don't have big firm experience?
