Now, I know this title may sound controversial, but I, myself, have been thinking about becoming a lawyer for some time now. Why would one want to? What are the benefits other than monetary ones? Are there passionate attorneys who have somehow found a particular area of law to hold their passion, or do they eventually fall fate to the infamous "golden handcuffs" that grasp attorneys in their later years after they have been trodden by countless hours and lack of recognition by partners but yet are faced with limited options outside of law. What is it in law that one can be passionate about if not for money, power, and greed? I really want to know.
