As a lawyer, you get to make a difference in your life and others. In a day to day basis, a lawyer can help those who are in desperate need of assistance. Poor people who are oppressed, weak women who are raped, children who are abused… Basically, a good person who makes a terrible judgment and makes a mistake like a human being is bound to be. People who needs defending, remorseful, and asks for a second chance. A lawyer can help out so that these people’s rights will be restored.
Only licensed attorneys can practice law. That is a great advantage. In every industry in this world, there is a legal department. Every business and office needs an expert advice from a lawyer. This just means that the demand for law graduates is pretty high. It is easy to find work when you are a graduate of law.
But before getting to be a lawyer, you have to study for years and take examinations to determine your competency on law. You make yourself equipped with your rights and obligations as a public citizen. You can use that knowledge to empower yourself in unfair situations. Both professionally and personally, you can make use of what you know and protect yourself, your client and your loved ones. You will be able to recognize a problem long before it happens.
