Public good vs. Personal gain

<p>I am curious to know from those of you who are considering a career in law what is the primary motivating factor in that decision. Let's hear from you.</p>

<p>Very much for personal gain, at least in comparison to public good. It's something that I think I would enjoy quite a bit and that also pays well.</p>

<p>Fair enough, there is no judgement being made -- one way or the other -- I am just interested in what motivates today's prospective law students. Thank you for you post.</p>

<p>Public good.</p>
