Law in Contemporary Society
I went to law school because I wanted power, i.e., the ability to make a difference, and law school seemed to be a traditional path one would go down to do that. In college I documented endangered languages and I consistently felt like my time was being wasted. I realized that I wasn’t saving languages, but rather documenting their demise; I wasn’t making a difference. With this revelation in mind I researched cases where languages had actually been saved and the common denominator to those successes was power. When governments instituted language revitalization initiatives, usually as a result of politicians and other powerful people lobbying for that language, those languages were saved. This clear example of power being the difference between success and failure was what drew me to the law and specifically the way law can protect others. -- By ChristinaObiajulu - 28 Jan 2013
