For those who want to become lawyers, those in law school, and those practicing law, life is full of questions. The one that I speak of and have encountered many times, prior to law school, in law school, and during an externship I had this past summer, is why. Why would you want to become a lawyer? Why would you put yourself through the craziness they call law school? Why can I not sue the police officer for bruising my arm when he arrested me? Answering the multitude of questions that are fired your way can become a bit of a pain, but at the end of the day it is what lawyers do.
