don't just crack CLAT, come hack CLAT with us.
May be, may be not. Consider the following points, and you shall have the answer.
A lawyer must be brilliant with language - otherwise you get to be an average lawyer. No fun. But that does not mean you have to be brilliant even before you join a law school - you just need to want to be brilliant at writing and speaking. I could not speak a sentence without stopping in English when I had decided to become a lawyer. I knew one day I will be a stunning speaker - and it happened over time, through active learning. Being a law student provided the necessary environment and the right incentives.
A lawyer must learn to deal with people - a good lawyer is nice, diplomatic, sometimes charismatic, he thrives off attention. If you don’t like people, or don't get a kick out of solving their miscellaneous problems - being a lawyer may not be a great idea. You can still make money and have a good life - but law may not be your dream career then.
A lawyer needs to work hard. The fat pay cheque comes because you have been handling high tension, high stake deals that require utmost commitment and care. For most lawyers, work has to come before personal life. It’s a hard world.
A lawyer is often perceived wrongly by many lay persons as another manipulative, scary instrument of oppression by the rich and the powerful. Also, that we are just bad human beings and we have to lie as a matter of professional necessity. If you want to be a lawyer, you must do your share to dispel these misconceptions.
Be a good lawyer, one that makes life easier, not more difficult. Being a lawyer will be fun then. As a lawyer, you shall have to learn to be efficient. Otherwise you'd find yourself in the wrong job.
A shopkeeper or a doctor may afford to be inefficient, it will reduce their success, and effort-reward ratio, but it would not kill them. In efficiency is unofficially the most common reason for a lawyer's death.
Being a lawyer will give you the power to have an impact on others lives. Want to make a difference to how things are generally run? Legal training could be your best friend. You would learn how to speak in the language of authority, you will know how the people in higher echelons think and act - and you will know the laws. That’s a great empowerment.
Yes, if you become a lawyer, you will probably get many opportunities to be rich. There is money in this profession - its booming in India right now. If you are a good lawyer, you are a rare commodity - your price will be high. However, you don't become a good lawyer just by getting admitted to a law school - please realize that and work hard to learn the necessary skills.
Being a lawyer is about skills, some people tend to think that it is about reading cases and statutes. No wonder they find themselves miserable and often unsuccessful.
Interestingly, there are many great lawyers who are neither corporate lawyers, nor they practice in courts. They have curved out their niche in policy making, social empowerment, teaching and god knows what else. They command respect, they live interesting lives.
'on the other hand if you are smart and capable, you would quit the job and do something better.'
