For the past 3 years, I have interned and worked at about 3 different law offices. I've always been interested in a career in law, but more because I'm NOT interested in med school, business or engineering....I've done well in all of my classes about law (Con Law, Family Law, Soc. of Law, etc....although I know these classes probably don't compare to the classes in law school). However, something I've noticed about myself is that I'm not very quick on my feet. I've never really been able to participate in class discussions because I never felt as knowledgeable or as quick of a thinker as my fellow classmates. I've always been intimidated by how much my classmates have known about legal issues and politics, and I've realized that while I am book smart, I find it hard to follow political issues and legal debates.
Based on this, would you say that the legal field is not a good fit for me? I really enjoy learning about law, but am scared that law school will be way to much for me handle, given that I really don't know anything about the workings of the legal system.
Do not worry about it! As long as its meant for you to go to law school, you will go. Your thinking may be slow but you should start now with improving it. Spend time doing many analytical problems and material that challenges your logic. Once you practice you will only get better at it. It may seem discouraging at first but NEVER let anything prohibit you from doing what you want to do.
Practice, practice, practice!!!......Good luck, you'll do fine.
