The Suburban Ecstasies: Like Lambs To...

On a more serious note, public defender Seth Abramson of The Suburban Ecstasies offers more blunt talk about the career options available to law students. This might be especially relevant to 2Ls participating in their on-campus interview program (sometimes known as OCI or FIP) where the options are typically firms, firms, and more firms. Mr. Abramson says:

One comment I keep seeing is, “I like [insert corporate sweatshop here], but they just don't do anything I'm interested in.”

Newsflash, friends: none of the firms do anything you're interested in.

For instance, help people, solve problems, work on behalf of the interests of justice, or, say, do just about anything your parents told you to try and do with your life when you were younger. You know, things that matter.

You probably won't be hearing stuff like this from your career services office, but that doesn't mean it's not worth listening to. Read the whole post for more. [via the Scoplaw]
