Studying law will broaden my mind and prepare me for greater things.  It will enable me to make money to see that those I care about are well taken care of.  It appeals to my strengths, and the world needs more good lawyers who will help redeem the reputation of the profession.  Those are a few of my reasons.

I am going into animal rights law, by focusing on public interest in school. I work for a national a.r. org. and want to eventually serve as legal counsel for such a group or gov. agency like the state vet board. I think that there is a desperate need for lawyers in this field, as it does not pay well, and is not very glamorous so those who worked hard to excel and complete law school do not want to sacrifice those things in their career.

Of course, first I have to get in somewhere!!

I think you have evidence for this with your crazed commute to Cooley from Atlanta

I know this is going to make me sound like a total geek but sometimes if I read something in the Georgia Bar Journal that I disagree with or that I think the author has gotten wrong I write them.  I've become friends with several attorneys this way.

It is an immediate way to have my own business. I could not think of any other business ideas that suited my strenghts better than law. I could probably start another business cheaper and sooner but I think a law practice will be more profitable in the long range than  landcaping or consulting etc..
