A Most Unusual Job
If you are a law student, or lawyer, you have selected a most unusual discipline. You should try to make the most of the opportunities presented to you. I’m not knocking other disciplines, of course. But law is special in at least three respects.
First, it is about the control of power in society. Be you ever so high, the law is above you. Law puts a check on the selfish exercise of power by individuals who enjoy it so that, if they can access the law, the poor, the marginalised and the vulnerable in society may be protected.
