A Lawyer’s Insightful Journey From Student to Attorney
I am very excited for the Harris County Attorney’s Office Legal Symposium because nineteen-year-old me would have ran to register. The first inkling I had of being interested in the law was in high school. I took an elective about law enforcement and enjoyed it. However, I couldn’t picture myself as a criminal attorney, and since that was really the only kind of lawyer I knew about, I dismissed my interest in the law. I think like many people, my understanding of the law was really limited to TV and movies. There were no lawyers in my family, or even somewhere in the web of people I knew growing up. I don’t think I even met an attorney until I was in law school.
