Nisha’s Answer

My motivation in law school stemmed from a burning desire to create a better life for myself and my family. As the oldest child, I was acutely aware of the responsibility I carried, knowing that my younger siblings were looking up to me. This made me determined to set a shining example for them. Since my early childhood, I dreamt of becoming a lawyer, and realizing this lifelong dream fueled my passion and drive throughout my educational journey.

Growing up in a less-than-glamorous neighborhood taught me resilience and motivated me to rise above my circumstances. I didn't want to simply be a product of my environment; instead, I was determined to pave my own path toward success – and inspire others like me to do the same. My journey has reinforced the belief that it doesn't matter where you come from; with unwavering determination and hard work, you can achieve your dreams and make a true difference in the world.

Hi Faith,
My motivation was getting a law degree was that I had worked so hard for that I felt like I had done something great for myself and those around me. I wanted to get the ground work in law completed. I also thought how I could do pro bono work for those in need. Freedom in my career was also a consideration.

Justine’s Answer

During my law school studies, my primary motivation was studying hard, getting good grades, and preparing myself to pass the bar exam. You can't be a lawyer without all that! But as far as motivation to go to law school, I came to law school after obtaining a minor in Ethnic Studies in undergrad and wanting to ultimately focus my practice in public interest / non-profit work. Through the course of law studies, I identified other interests as well, ones I couldn't have known about before studying law (I liked litigation and dispute resolution). I also did some interning opportunities in public interest and decided it wasn't really for me. That's all to say - you can have some idea, or no idea, what you ultimately want to do after law school. Just an inkling that you might like the practice of law is a great start, and your studies and experiences will lead you in the right direction. Best of luck!
