Third of legislators in Mass. are lawyers

Off-topic, but interesting: Analysis by the Berkshire Eagle of the biographies of all 197 sitting members of the Massachusetts legislature shows that the typical Bay State lawmaker is a middle-aged, married white male with a law degree. The review found that 33 percent of the legislators hold juris doctor degrees. That is an increase from 10 years ago, when 28 percent of the body had law degrees.
