Why did I pick law?

People who do law are often asked why they decided to do law. Here are some of the answers that I often get:

I got the marks

I didn't know what else to do

Law is this century's equivalent of a liberal arts degree

Law is a great starting point

I wanted to branch off into journalism/foreign affairs

I couldn't get into medicine

I didn't want to be unemployed

Why not?


Less common reasons (and definitely not my reasons):

The law pulsates through my veins - I love the law.

I wanted to make a lot of money.

Money, power, glory.
