– Why not? What’s the big deal about practicing law and making money? I don’t want to work at McDonalds. I’d rather go out on my own, get paid well for doing something that makes sense to me, and be able to help people with their legal problems.
– How can you do all of this without becoming a lawyer yourself?
– Not by going out there and starting a practice right away. But if I keep working in firms while learning more about what lawyers need from them – how they think about things – maybe one day when the time is right I’ll start a firm of my own or join an existing one.
