On being a lawyer

A colleague who practices criminal law in Washington DC has a wonderfully thoughtful post on what it means to be a lawyer. We're always the recipient of jokes, no shocker there, but lately there has been much discussion about whether people are pouring into the profession without knowing what they're getting into.

The best I can possibly do is refer them to Jamison Koehler's blog entry. Even if you're not thinking about going to law school, it makes for great reading.


  1. This makes me glad I made the right decision, Mark. Thanks for the link!

  2. Great article for someone about to take the LSAT, thanks for the link.
