Many students have different reasons for going to law school depending on their influences and interests. For instance, my students choose to go to law school because they want to learn about the legal system, go to court, defend the less fortunate, or to protect our cities and states.
Others go to law school possibly to follow in their family’s footsteps or to help with a legal cause of action a family or friend was placed in.
In addition, some choose to go to law school to work with politicians, district attorneys, and other influential people. Some people watch televisions shows and movies concerning the legal system, and get inspired.
For those interested in law school, it can help to take a legal course (IE political science, constitutional law, or introduction to legal studies) at your community college or local university to get a better idea of what you could be in for before just jumping into law school.
I hope this helps!
