Lots of people consider becoming a lawyer because of the prestige and financial security something like this could offer them, but for the most part they don’t go for it because they are scared that becoming a lawyer is going to be difficult and it’s important to note that it is indeed one of the most difficult things that you could possibly end up doing all things considered. However, calling it difficult is doing it a disservice because anything worth doing is going to offer you some challenges along the way.
Now, if your life plan genuinely does involve becoming a lawyer at any point this doesn’t mean that your social life is going to be nonexistent. All it means is that you might need to put some effort into finding a way to manage your time a little more efficiently. There will be a lot of studying to do, but this doesn’t mean that you will have your head buried in books the whole time. Much on the contrary, you will have to go out there and gain practical experience, something like interning at a law firm such as Armstrong & Surin where you can learn the ropes and see what being a lawyer is really like.
Suffice it to say that becoming a lawyer isn’t going to be easy. It will test the limits of your patience and will require absolute commitment on your part. However if you were to focus on it and give it the time that is required you will find that your life will become far better than it could ever have been had you not put this effort in, and you will be glad that you focused on this to this extent.
