teaching about a career in law for high school students

I interviewed a lawyer, now retired about a position in Law

often times it seems like when you're a junior in High School, the pressure is on a student to choose what career path they want to go down. Also, many people find in their adulthood that they may want to change their goals. Therefore I am on a monthly basis going to write about the different popular career paths which one may want to go on. I interviewed a retired lawyer. His expertise was in probate law. He chose to be a lawyer.. He proclamed that there were two influences. Perry Mason (believe it or not ) was the first and then when his guidance counselor called him into his office, he told him that he needed additional credits to become a post graduate in his senior year. He took classes which enabled him to take business law. The two higher educational Schools he attended were Umass Boston and New England School of Law.
Now I asked him what would he tell an aspiring high schooler . The advice was to get a good education by studying and selecting a wide range of subjects. He added to be sure to select a course of study which he really liked. The interviewee decided to be a probate lawyer. I asked him how he came to the decision. He replied that his father had him talk to a friend of his . This friend suggested that he practice and study in his office as much as possible. To give you a taste of what probate lawyers cover; there are wills, estates, and trusts mainly that must follow legal guidelines. As time went on he developed an expertise in this area of law
In conclusion, when probed, he said he'd do it all again except he would've started a lot sooner. He also offered that you could earn a good living being a lawyer. Finally, the best way to enter this or any other occupation is to have a deep desire, and to be inspired.
