Thanks for your comment. First, I think it is great that you are seeking the opinions of lawyers. My opinion about this is one that I have shared since my first year of law school, which is that the only reason one should enter law school is to practice law. If, at some point, you leave the law, so be it. But I dont think that law school should be used as an alternative to pursing your passion (music) because doing so would be difficult. Building a legal career is also difficult, especially if youre dreaming of making music. :-) One of the myths about law school is that it prepares you for any and everything that you may want to pursue. The reality is that, having obtained a law degree, we feel compelled to justify our training in some way. We perpetuate the idea that law school and/or law practice opens doors for us and prepares us for just about any field we someday go into. But this is true about life in general. I dont have any regrets about attending law school, but the truth is that there are other passions that could have been nurtured during the years that I was focused on practicing law and certainly the money spent to attend law school could have enabled me to do other things that are important to me. My advice to you would be to research a few equal justice agencies and music-related businesses and ask for an informational interview to find out if the day-to-day jobs are something that would really interest you. Is it possible for you to seek an internship at one of these businesses before deciding whether or not to attend law school? This will help you decide if a law degree is really necessary to doing what you want to do. I dont want anyone to speculate about the opportunities that having a law degree might bring. If you decide to go to law school, I want you to have a definitive plan about how you intend to use this degree to build a career in which you will thrive.
