Some Advice Please: To A High-schooler Who Wants To Be A Lawyer

John, a high-schooler, wants to become a lawyer. He wrote to me (and I presume a number of other Law.com bloggers since he found me through Law.com). I cleared it with his mother, and we will likely correspond through email about his desire to become a lawyer.

Here's his email as it came to me, with only his name changed to protect his privacy:

"Hello Mr. Craig. My name is John. I am only a junior in High School. And I already know what career I desire to persue. I worked at a law firm for the past 2 years (during summer, spring and winter breaks). I love law. I participate in anything law related. Debating, Mock trials, moot court and mono congress.

I am seeking your advice. I want to get ahead start.

If you have the time, and your willing, I would love to speak with you regarding this issue.

Please acknowledge your willingness by replying this email. John."

Now's your chance to give some advice to an aspiring lawyer. Comment away.
