"Why did we go to law school?
Two words: Frank Johnson.
Most of you have never heard of the guy. He'ÂÂs not in the history books. Though he ought to be. Because Frank Johnson was living proof that one man really can make a difference.
What did he do? He was a trial judge in Alabama during a critical phase of our nation'ÂÂs history, when the cause of civil rights for blacks and other minorities became a movement. And a good case can be made that, but for Frank Johnson, the movement would not have taken place as it did, ÂÂ maybe not even at all, as we know it.
The history books are full of the great men and women who led the movement. But if it weren't for Judge Johnson, they wouldn't have been able to do so many of their great deeds. He didn't do their deeds, but he made them possible.
Check out the Wikipedia article on the man, to get an idea of what this lower-court judge was able to accomplish. With a stroke of his pen, he forced the State of Alabama to integrate those buses, made the governor get out of the damn schoolhouse door, forced the governor to allow the historic March from Selma to Montgomery, and much more.
It'ÂÂs no exaggeration to say again that he proved by his deeds that one man really can make a difference.
That'ÂÂs all we wanted to do with our short time on this planet. Somewhere in our college years, we decided we were going to make a difference, if only a small one. We looked at our particular talents and decided they'ÂÂd be put to best use in the law. We might never achieve the same kinds of things as Judge Johnson, but with luck and perseverance we might make a difference to a few real human beings. We like to think we have been doing that." -Nathaniel Burney
Now, if youâre going into law just for a nice paycheck and some prestige, youâre doing it for the wrong reasons. And itâs probably not worth it unless youâre so smart and accomplished that you can be hired by a big firm (and yet not quite bright enough to figure out that, except for a few awesome firms, doing so is essentially trading your life for a living, and putting off any further accomplishments for the next several years). If youâre not already a superstar at what youâve been doing with your life thus far, odds are youâre not going to morph into one during law school.
And if youâre doing it because you canât think of anything else to do, itâs so obvious that youâre doing it for the wrong reasons that itâs a waste of space to even explain it here.
So what are the right reasons?
Itâs going to be different for each person, because the right reasons are always personal. Itâs something about you, who you are, what purpose you want your life to have. But if youâre doing it for the right reasons, you donât have to be the smartest person in the room. You donât have to graduate in the top third of your class at a top-tier school. All you need to do is bust your ass in school to master the material and learn how to think like a lawyer, then bust your ass once youâve got that JD and make sure you goddamn well fulfill your purpose.
