A quick google search for “ask an attorney” will reveal a plethora of answers: because you want a career in law or a passion for teaching, or you want the best job in the world, or because you just love reading legal briefs, or just to make sure you’re not the only one in the room who doesn’t read law and/or law school.
All of these questions are valid and legitimate reasons to consider a career as an attorney, but what is it about these kinds of questions that leads some to decide they are worth pursuing, while others to avoid them entirely?
A new paper published in the American Journal of Sociology investigates the motivations behind each of these different paths.
The study’s authors say the research is particularly interesting because the kinds of people who answer the question on the first two questions are the ones who are more likely to ultimately choose to enter a career, with the more educated the person.
That is, the more intelligent the person, the less likely they are to consider pursuing a career path.
The authors note that people who say they want to pursue a career are more than twice as likely as those who say that they want a hobby, and they also tend to be more likely than those who do not to have a strong social network.
“It’s not about who’s smarter or smarter than the rest of us, it’s about who knows more about the world,” said lead author Kristine Naylor, a professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota.
“I think what people are doing here is looking at a different set of questions, and the research suggests that the question they ask about their motivations for pursuing a professional or hobby is more salient than people think.”
To understand why, it helps to think about the role of the lawyers who are the subjects of this study.
These are the people who actually get to see how law is done in practice, in the courtroom, in courtrooms, in other legal settings.
The paper’s authors note these lawyers are not only the people in the rooms that have to hear the cases, but also the ones that have the final say on which cases go to trial.
They are the lawyers whose work ultimately determines whether or not a particular case goes to trial, and in many cases they are the one who decide which cases will get to trial in the first place.
This is the same role the lawyers play in the legal profession in real life.
Lawyers also often have an impact on how much money lawyers make.
As they make more money, they may also be able to attend more legal seminars, which may help them become more familiar with the profession.
And there’s one last piece of the puzzle.
This paper also finds that people are more inclined to seek a career if they have an educational background, meaning they have a better understanding of the issues and law and legal students who are from low-income backgrounds have a lower chance of pursuing a law degree.
So why are people choosing a career when they do not have an education?
The answer to this question is not hard to find.
For starters, the study found that the people most likely to seek an education are those who are already lawyers.
They also tend not to be educated in the same way as other people, and if they are, they do so in a less-connected way.
“There’s this idea that there’s some sort of social glue between lawyers and students,” said Naylor.
“But what you see is that there is not that social glue.
It’s a very strong and pervasive cultural expectation that lawyers should be educated at a very high level, and it’s a belief that they should not be.
People tend to see the professional and legal world as separate worlds, and so people will do whatever they can to get that education.”
The researchers also found that this belief can be especially powerful when the person seeking to become a lawyer has a low level of education, and that is particularly true when the degree comes from a less well-connected school.
When this happens, the person is less likely to consider attending law school, but they are still likely to have the opportunity to learn a new legal skill, such as working in a low-paid field.
Naylor said the paper’s findings suggest that if you’re interested in becoming a lawyer, you should focus on getting the right education.
“The idea that you’re going to be better educated than the other person if you have a high-paying job is a myth,” she said.
“What you’re really interested in is what you’re learning and what’s going on in the real world.”
As the paper notes, the research also shows that this idea is reinforced by people’s own perceptions of what a successful lawyer would be like.
“People think that if they want their lawyer to succeed, they need to have an MBA,” Naylor noted.
“They think that they need some sort
