People choose to go to law school for a lot of reasons. If you are “book smart” (as they used to say) and you don’t know what you want to do, but you want the comfortable life of a well-paid, urban professional something-or-other, law school has historically been the go-to career path. If you graduated in the top 10 percent of your class at an accredited law school, you were practically guaranteed a job with a firm or a government agency.
