Am I the only one that wants to spend over 100k on law school just to become a PD. When I told my dad what I wanted to do he said, "You'll NEVER recover my investment in your brain."So yeah...I have a rose colored vision of defending the indigent. I'm just fuzzy on how I defend the poor without being one. Maybe I can supplement my income by defending a rich, handsome, wrongfully accused serial killer every so often. Maybe a few years of serving the underserved and then move on.
That is almost exactly what I want to do: be a trial lawyer for the public (either Defense of Prosecution). And I am shelling out more than 100,000 if you you include UG.
def public interest, most likely international law, with an interest in electoral law in developing countries. if i get tired of the glam life in the third world (cough, cough) then i may end up throwing my talents (whatever they are) at the poverty problem here in the US, with a focus on the Deep South.then 10-15 years out of ls, i am thinking of going into politics/legislation/policy making.
