I am a student interested in law school but want to learn more about what lawyers do. I am doing an independent study on legal systems and would be thanksful if you can answer some questions about your career. Thanks!.
The questions are listed below.
1). What events occurred in your life that led you to pursue the career you are in?
2). Who would you consider your mentors in the field, and how have they helped you get where you are? How would you go about finding a good mentor in this career choice?
3). What are your daily tasks in the career choice and how do you go about completing them? Does it depend on what kind of law you do?
4). Do you consider your work inspiring, has there ever been a time where you felt like not continuing it?
5). How has the community been impacted by your work, is there a desire for community involvement? Does the impact of your community involvement make you more dedicated to your work?
6). What are the steps that you had to take to get to where you are (College, work experience)?
7). What kind of person (personality, work dedication) do think would would fit into that career field? Does undergraduate education (such as pre-law) help for law school? What was your undergraduate major?
8). What are the challenges to your career? Have you experienced any personally or have heard anyone else go through challenges?
9).What are your professional goals in the future? Do think you will continue what you are passionate about or have you thought about doing something else?
10). What would you consider your biggest issues in your field? What would it take to enter into a field and the challenges brought upon wanting to participate in your line of work? Do you have any specific advice for them or someone interested in law?
