If you were to ask 30 different law students why they were pursuing careers in law, you’d likely get 30 different answers. This of course, despite the fact all of our personal statements said we wanted to “save the world.” Yes, some, including myself, do naively hope to leave a lasting impact on the lives of our future clients. Others want to revolutionize business, constitutional, employment, and even tax law! And some among us are pursuing legal careers for the sole purpose of ensuring personal financial security. Regardless of what brings students into the law library for late night study sessions, there is one piece of advice I feel applies to all and that is to cherish and soak up every opportunity for growth and learning.
