I know plenty of people that graduated law school that aren't lawers
Most are gainfully employed, but not practicing law. The ratio here in CA(among people I know) is about 5:1 against, if you include people that WERE practicing lawers and hit the ejector seat along with those that never found work after passing the state bar.
We have more law schools then there is work to go around, partly because most lawyers want $$$ to $$$$ an hour and also love turning down work.
Law schools main product is student loan debt, and their students are the product. The constellation of vendors, service companies, and loan operators are their real customers, that and the Firms that grab the top % of each school and throw any other applications that aren't top tier schools in a skip bin without reading them.
Not many of my friends with law degrees are suited for sysadmin work. One quit a paralegal job and went on to write Ad copy for Sun Micro-systems back in the day. For anyone that could hack together a network config, you could save two years, hundreds of thousands in Law school fees and bar prep, and interest fees, and have been working the whole time. Maybe not as good for top end pay, but it would take years of brown nosing or elbow grease hanging your own shingle to out strip it.
Or you could become a certified welder and after a couple years get certified as a weld inspector and get close to the same money and not ever look at a cisco switch console in your life, which would also have it's merits. And a CCNA isn't worth what it used to be, so you might also waste less of your life and money on ongoing professional development. Now you need a few cloud certs and probably stuff from other vendors.
