We'll see who's laughing when I convince the judge to make you take your shirt off to the delight of the all-female jury, exposing the rash you got from swimming in a polluted lake.

I did a sourcecite for an article on space law. You would not believe the amount of scholarship there is on who owns/is responsible for the random floating debris in space. This article probably cite 50-75 books entirely devoted to space law plus of course dozens of articles.

God, I hate legal scholarship.

I want to help myself.

I want to become filthy rich.

I want to find a super hot woman that can also cook.

My parents said "you need to become a doctor".

I want to be a attorney.

I like discussions that turn into arguments.

The extremely high positions it can take me to.

I love to compete

I want to be challenged everyday even if that challenge is finding a job in my chosen field

I want to help black people.

I want to judge people

I want to defend deranged rich people

I want to either protect the environment or the people who harm it.

It was a great idea when I originally decided back in 2006.
