“You should be a lawyer!,” the age-old comment that parents give to their argumentative children. If you’ve grown up in the 90s or the 2000s, you more than likely have heard someone say it. The main assumptions everyone makes about being a lawyer is that you get paid tons of money to argue. Another stereotype is that they are paid to lie in the court.
Although this isn’t true, there is somewhat of an unspoken stigma against lawyers. But at the end of the day, what if you really want to become a lawyer? Well, this video outlines several signs that this profession may be right for you.
Becoming a lawyer takes tons of work and schooling, which without a doubt is not the path many want to walk down. If you want to be a lawyer, you shouldn’t be afraid of huge books, long nights, and tons of studying. You also need to be confident and composed. A passion for arguing a point and building up an argument to fit a client’s need is a must. Another vital skill to have before pursuing a profession in law is to have excellent time management skills. If this sounds like you, you should actually “be a lawyer!”
