Michael’s Answer

Lawyers have to be excellent at managing deadlines and responding to client's requests. Lawyers also must have a keen attention to detail and an easy to understand writing style. In my few years of practicing, the most difficult aspect of being a lawyer is making sure to adhere to your client requests in a timely matter and to meet your deadlines all while producing a thorough and thoughtful work product.


There are other business concerns outside of practicing such as getting new clients, retaining current clients, and timely managing the administrative areas of your practice that are also difficult.


You will need to weigh these considerations and then determine if it is a career for you.

Sonia’s Answer

I am an in-house lawyer at a technology company and I work on commercial contracts. The most difficult part of my job is trying to learn the technical platform that my company sells. Even though my expertise is in law, it is important to know about the technology when negotiating commercial contracts, as many of the terms and conditions in commercial contracts are based on the technology my company sells. While it can be tough, I also enjoy learning new things and it can be exciting to learn about technology that does cool things.

Sonia recommends the following next steps:

You should figure out if you want to be a lawyer at a law firm, if you want to be a public defender/district attorney, or work in-house at a company. Within each of these areas, there are so many options available to you.
