I still come back to large scale medical tort law.  Nothing like a good class action against a drug company!

Hi. I don't mean to appear ignorant - not any more so than usual, anyway -  but what exactly is "child advocacy" law? I have been volunteered at a residential treatment centers for abused kids, an "emergency nursery" where people drop off their kids for a few hours, no questions asked, when they feel like they're at the end of their rope with their child(ren), and been a foster parent. The only attorneys I've met, even guardians ad litem at the court hearings when the kids' biolgical parents' rights were being terminated, practised what they called family law. Can you enlighten me, please? Thanks.

I'd like to do one of the following...Criminal Prosecution, Appellate or Public Policy.  Although, the Kelo decision has me thinking about property law.

I guess that's what 1L is for

I believe I share a dilemma with many of you. That being, what I would like to practice—immigration, child advocacy, clerking for a judge—does not pay. Law school loans are a killer, as we are all aware, and need to be paid off. I work with tax lawyers now and they keep crazy hours including holidays and I see them sacrificing family time for career. However, they are all making well over $350,000 per year.

What to do?
3.85 GPA (4.0)Major. No LSAT yet
