I want to be a lawyer. . .
More than one high school and college student aspires to the profession, not fully understanding what it fully means to be an attorney and the commitment it takes to get there.
Unless you have an immediate family member who practices law, it may not be entirely obvious why people choose the law as a vocation.
Lawyers want to help people and make a difference.
Clearly, that is easier said than done.
Setting out to make a change and knowing how you want to do that, especially at 17-years-old, is truly remarkable.
But Broughton Senior, Jacob Rabin, is just that. He is a remarkable young man, and for more senior lawyers, serves as a shining star for the future.
Today on Law Talk with Bil Powers, we're joined by Aspiring Lawyer and Broughton High School Phenom, Jacob Rabin.
Jacob is well ahead of the curve in both his understanding of the law and the reasons why someone might want to choose the law as a profession.
We'll discuss Jacob's experience with the NC Mock Trial Competition, how he became involved, and what he's learned in the process.
Jacob and Bill also talk about Jacob's work on the NC State Bar Journal Article: The Wilmington Ten - Starting a Conversation.
