Pros: can help to do some good in the world, have knowledge of the law and know how things REALLY work (can interpret a law’s real meaning), have a good take on the history surrounding various laws, etc., there is a certain sense of power with the knowledge you have obtained. Cons: Other people might assume that you are wealthy, (even if you work for legal aid), and try to take advantage of the situation, you may not always like your clients, (some can be a real pain, some can be dangerous, and some firms may have corrupt clients and are they are fine with it), you are ALWAYS asked for free legal advice from everyone you know, and lately, trial lawyers have gotten a bad rep from our current administration (which I feel is way off base considering what trial lawyers have achieved, which can be quite admirable when you think about it (class actions, etc).
