Congratulations! You’re in law school. You’ve resisted the urge to get a master’s degree in English. You hate the sight of blood, so avoided med school. Your family always told you that with your mouth, you’d make a good lawyer…or that you’re so logical and level-headed, you’d be a natural. Hopefully you truly want to be a lawyer and, no matter what led you to law school, you are starting to look for a path to use your law degree and enjoy your career. So what type of lawyer should you be?
Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. The ABA Legal Career Quiz is not a scientific instrument nor a comprehensive work that ensures a particular job fit, now or in the future. It’s a quick introduction to help you begin the career exploration process. If we can help you identify some directions you may be leaning, it can help you start to narrow down pathways that may interest you.
As you work through the quiz, if you don’t know which options to select, that means you’ll want to do more research. Talk with your law school career advisors and alumni or participate in bar association career programs or job fairs.
So let’s get started!…
Even though it may be obvious, going to law school is a significant investment of time and money. Do your diligence before applying and while attending. Learn as much as you can about what lawyers do and all the walks you can pursue with a law degree. We hope this little quiz has helped.
