My advice is not to become a lawyer (or any other profession for that matter) just because it sounds prestigious or you think you can make a lot of money. It should be something you're truly interested in because it requires a lot of hard work. Law school is not "easy"! There is a lot of time and effort involved as there is with anything in which you want to be successful. Being a 'traditional' lawyer (representing clients) requires that you read and write A LOT, requires an ability to speak in front of people, be a good listener, able to handle deadlines, and more. The work is challenging, exciting and rewarding, but there are times when it is tedious, boring, and exhausting. Even still, it is work I look forward to every day!

The point of this exercise is to model the law school experience a little bit and see how you respond. Obviously, being a lawyer and being a law student are quite different, but you can't get to be the former without being the latter first. More to the point, three years of law school + bar prep + several years as a junior associate doing research assignments (as is common) is a long time to spend in a library if you don't love the process. And if you don't love reading and writing that much, that's OKAY! It just means you might be better off doing something that is "legal adjacent" like business management, finance, public relations, etc.
