No, it fits my personality pretty well. I'm an introvert with passable public speaking skills. The long hours don't bother me and my lack of empathy (a personal weakness) lets me get passed some of the "bad" things people might see practicing law.
I do get lonely sometimes though, law sometimes makes it hard to develop relationships with others who aren't lawyers because the hours.
Grades matter but don't let them define you. Exam test 1/4 of the material which represents .0000000001 % of substantive law and takes into consideration 0 research and communication skills....the most important
Biggest problem with the field of law. For every law review genius who can memorize a restatement and recite it word for word with perfect skills. You get hundreds of students with top grades who memorized a class outline, could type 120 wpm, and yet lack the creativity that actually makes great caselaw.
>>16661786 Not really. The biggest problem with hiring is assuming that because someone went to a higher ranked school, they're a smarter and better candidate.
If I'm a recruiter, I'm not hiring anyone who doesn't have top grades. If someone doesn't have the dedication and work ethic to get good marks, they're not going to magically have it when they work for a firm or wherever
How big a part does charisma play in being a lawyer? Is it enough to get your facts straight and present them as is, or is it essential to be able to present them similarly to TV lawyers? Basically, is being a loudmouth as vital as media makes it seem?
What also happens in popular culture is that lawyers bend the truth ridiculously far. Is there any truth to this in real life? Is it possible for "honesty" and "lawyer" to mix?
I'm considering the field of work myself, but perhaps I'm too quiet and naive to not make all those years of training a waste.
If I get arrested and no one else knows, what do I do? Do you just say "I want to talk to a lawyer"? When, like in the car, at the station after I'm locked up etc? Do they get you a court-appointed lawyer or do they give you the chance to call someone?
Also, suppose I know of a lawyer, but I haven't memorized his number and they've confiscated my phone?
