IMHO, being a lawyer is one of the only (legal) was to really fight the bad guys. You can be a cop or an FBI agent, but you spend most of your time oppressing minorities through draconian drug laws. As a lawyer with a good case you can tear down institutions. Merck was nearly sued out of existence after the Vioxx scandal. You can't have that kind of impact in any other profession.
Also, I typically hate Tucker Max, but I feel that this article is credited. I enjoy law school, I've worked as a paralegal for years before LS, and I've been lurking and posting on TLS for a while; however, the TLS community is in a bubble. Most people in LS are not in T25 schools, they're not in the top 10% of their class, they're not reading up on the profession, and they have made a naive and foolish decision in going to law school. Many people on here may get defensive, but they have (for the most part) really done their homework and have worked hard to get to where they are, but for all the twenty-some thousand students at T3-4s or those at the bottom of their classes who will never work a legal job, Law School is without a doubt the wrong answer and they should have people telling them not to attend. I personally know people trying to get in to law school or who are already there who really should not be, having cited many of these 6 reasons as to why they wanted to attend; shouting any of these reasons as justifications for LS attendance throws up so many red-flags that they are not making the right decision in attending.
