Try interning at a busy firm before you start law school. Then again going to law school is like doing philosophy or art in the past. Most just take it because they don't know what to pick but you'll be able to take up any career if you don't like it.Thanks. It’s something that I wanted to do as a kid, but then I was pulled into a different direction and now I’ve realized that it’s what I actually want to go into.
You nailed it! Although I do want to help my people, I want to help myself too. Nothing is wrong with that.Similar to what everyone else is saying apply for the best schools if you want to make a lot of money. You're black and a woman, if you have decent grades and LSAT you'll get in.
Make a compelling narrative about helping your community, white people sitting in those admissions committee love those struggle papers. But when you get into law school go the corporate money making stream .
Work hard nothing good comes easy, Inshallah it works out.
Helping your people is the thing to do, however you'll be better able to do that as a corporate attorney with some powerful connections rather than a SJW lawyer in a strip mall.You nailed it! Although I do want to help my people, I want to help myself too. Nothing is wrong with that.
I personally am but you're British right?I plan on applying to law school this cycle and hope to start next year Insha’Allah. I’m looking for Somalis who would be interested in law, or if you know anyone currently in the field. I haven’t come across Somali lawyers, and am curious as to why we don’t pursue the field as much as compared to nursing, social work or engineering.
