“Why do you want to be a lawyer?”
This question always stumps me. Usually, I weasel my way out of it, but it’s tough. There is no one right answer, but there are many wrong ones.
I can’t put my finger on any one reason in particular to become a lawyer. For the last few years, I have avoided this question as best as I can. Whenever I’m cornered, I’ve mumbled something about my interest in the courts and what not, only to end up sounding pretty naive. I already know that real life courtrooms and proceedings are nothing like Law & Order.
