Yeah, I bet I got you singing the Pussycat Dolls song.
(Don’t worry so am I!) According the song, yes, I may want to “see the world, drive nice cars and…” well that’s about the extent of what I can relate to!
I get asked a lot what kind of lawyer I want to be. No, I don’t watch any of those lawyer shows…they scare me. Honestly, if it’s a show with a courtroom…it’s a pretty good chance someone got shot, and I just don’t care much for that kind of drama. (even a movie as light-hearted and lovable as Legally Blonde!)
So no, I don’t want to be in a courtroom. I’ve found, however, that transactional law/business law has peeked my interest. Working with companies who are working on IPOs and dealing in contracts, is more my style. It’s being able to practice law, without dealing with the people arguing about who did what to whom and who’s at fault. Although, much like undergrad, we have a lot of required courses to go through…so choosing a field is pretty much pointless at present.
So if you are picturing me in a pencil skirt, hair in a bun, standing next to my client yelling “I object”…then someone has been watching a few too many law movies!
