They would start after I completed law school.
Sorry if anything I typed was misleading. There will be no children for at least a few years after graduation! Lol. I am a returning college student that is 29 years old. There are lots of things about being a lawyer than sound good, but as you mentioned many clients prefer to hire recent graduates, it is an extreemly competitive field and takes several years to build up a client base, etc. The majorty of my f/t career would start in my late 40's- early 50's. Would it be possible for me to take many years off and then return later? Are there any fields within law that would be better than others?
