Let me start off by apologizing
I know this is not the exact forum for this question but, its the closest one I could find.
I'm currently in my undergrad, finished up my generals, and am really interested in law school. I was originally majoring in Nursing but just got turned off by the clinical being that I prefer the office environment. So hence I choose Law, it the other top choice. The problem is that I can't nail down the field that would be right for me. Some ideas that have come to me are:
Family Law -specifically, if the work is available, related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) issues. - No Biglaw that does Family that I could find.
Civil rights groups - One of my passions. (Read all major court decisions In re: LGBT Not trying to sound pompous I'm just interested) LGBT focus, but I have seen the salary some of the non-profit attorneys make. (No offense to any of you but, I can't survive comfortably on 30 - 45 K)
Prosecutorial work - Would love to be an ADA. I feel this is what the law is all about. I like the hands on experience. Interned for the local D.A.
Medical related field: Almost done with nursing and have a 5-6 year credit on my medical science class's. Probably would take 1.5 - 2 years to get RN.
-I'm kinda leaning towards Medicine (how much $$) or prosecutorial.
My Stats so far...
1st Practice LSAT 153
Numerous volunteer positions: Board member of local college, Student Director LGBT resources, Psychology Honor Society, HIV prevention group.
Have any of you had experiences with these fields and how is it working out for you? or any advice to give?
