Law in Contemporary Society

Personal Introduction

-- By TylerCope - 30 Jan 2015

I came to law school because I wanted to learn to be an advocate for those who did not have a voice in the legal world. The law serves as a barrier that is almost exclusively accessible to those who are a member of the “lawyer club.”

Well, no. On this account, it is accessible to anyone who has a lawyer.

My goal is to learn how to effectively advocate and argue for clients who do not know how to do it themselves.

Do you mean litigate for such clients? They would be anybody who isn't a litigator, right? Despite what clients tend to think, pretty much all lawyering is done for clients who do not know how to do it themselves, whoever they are. So what does this apparently-specific sentence really mean?

I want to learn the skills necessary to ensure that my clients will be able to maximize their position. My hope is for law school to provide me these skills.

Do you actually aspire to maximize positions, regardless of what and whose? At least the mushroom in Wonderland had two sides, and could both maximize and minimize positions. Of course, it was only a dumb fungus, and could not control who ate from either side.
