Have You Thought About Law School?
Maybe you were watching “The Practice” or reading a John Grisham novel. Perhaps it was during “Law and Order: SVU” or seeing a well-dressed woman with a stack of legal pads strutting down the street. But at one time or another, we’ve all thought, “Man, it would be cool to be a lawyer.” But then, for most people, reality kicks in and we remember that the letters J.D. behind your name come with law school loans, the bar exam, and all the hurdles that come with a legal education.
But if you get past all that baggage and you’re still dreaming about being a lawyer, what is it really like? Find out with the podcast below from our friend Shayna Cook, Partner at Goldman Ismail Tomaselli Brennan and Baum in Chicago.
She’s giving you the skinny on what it’s like to work in multiple different firm environments, and what going through law school and being a lawyer is like for her.
