"Maybe you end up with a specialty in advertising law. I think as long as it's not McDonalds, almost any summer job can be good experience.  Even that...at least you'll know how horrible it is working for a corporation like that on…"

"As long as you know what you're getting into, go for it.  I've just seen many folks your age who want to be lawyers while largely getting their idea of what that entails from TV and Hollywood.  Hence my comment."

I have no experience in the field whatsoever and…See More
