who says that being a lawyer is financially rewarding??? ive met lots of lawyers and until now they dont have a place they could call their own. prestigious? i dont think so. not all can make it at the top. why study 4 or 5 more years for a career that wont promise you the money, fame and future youve been dreaming of?

While I was in law school, I thought I'd graduate and start out making six figures. I don't know what kind of reality I was thinking of. I'm now working at the public defender's office, after looking for a job for 8 months (and my rank and resume should have gotten me hired easily). I enjoy my job, because I get some satisfaction from helping people who need my help. I do not enjoy being sworn at all the time, or being asked if a "real lawyer" would be better. The pay would be just fine if I didn't have a boatload of student loans to pay off. I'll probably be a lawyer for a while, then look into non-traditional legal careers.

hi! i feel that we, lawyers and future lawyers, must put our heart and soul into this profession. i know, the money may be hard but look at us, we are serving justice to the people. we are giving hope to the needy. in my eyes we are the heroes. i know there are evil people all around us and we may not eradicate all of them, but at least we are trying. dont give up on the profession.

sometimes, it is just about the passion, dream, and prestige. It really depends upon the person however, the legal profession in the Philippines is really crowded.
