Should You Really Be A Lawyer?

Should you really be a lawyer? Doesn't that seem like an overasked but underanswered question? I mean, how many times have you asked yourself that? Whether it was when the idea of going to law school first hit you, or a thousand times in your first semester of school, or three years after you started your first job, I'll bet everyone who has been connected with the legal profession in any way has asked themselves this question. That's why it's such a great title for a book. Should You Really Be A Lawyer: The Guide to Smart Career Choices Before, During and After Law School promises to be a good read for all of us who have asked the question. I'll try to get my hands on a copy and let you know what I think; meanwhile, if anyone else reads it first, please share your thoughts. Does it offer anything we won't find in other similar books on this subject? One thing the website offers is some online resources for people at different stages of the legal career track. For example, Humanizing Law School seeks to “maximize the overall health, well being, and career satisfaction of law students and lawyers.” Sounds like a good thing to me.
