I’ve learned a lot about myself since I started law school. One thing I’ve learned is that giving back is just as important to me as it was when I was young. I will get involved in anything I possibly can to help the community and those who need me. Seeing the legal system from an almost insider’s perspective definitely changes how I see the way things actually go. Going into law school, I expected to be changing the world or doing something good for people. The longer I’m in law school, the more I see how far from reality that is from what most lawyers actually do. Yes, all lawyers advocate for their clients and that is awesome. But at the same time, very few lawyers are able to make an actual impact on the community around them. There are pro bono but beyond that, it’s easy to lose faith in the legal world sometimes. Just like everything else, the legal world is imperfect and sometimes, those imperfections just get overwhelming and discouraging. I hope that as I get closer to the legal world and actual become a lawyer, I’ll be able to find a way to make my impact on the community around me.
