#1113 Would you ever want to be a lawyer?
Hi, my name is Chris. I'm from the US and my question is would I ever want to be a lawyer?
I don't think so. Aside from the very high salary that lawyers get, I think there are a number of disadvantages that go along with being a lawyer. I've always thought what happens if you're a prosecutor and you're prosecuting someone who you personally believe to be innocent or on the other hand, if you're a defense attorney and you're defending someone who you highly suspect of being guilty and deserving a higher penalty. And in both cases you're supposed to support your side and either prosecute or defend no matter what you personally believe what the truth of the matter is. And for me I find that to be a little difficult to overcome.
