Many people wonder if being a lawyer in 2018 and the near future is still a good idea. Things have changed and law is not quite the same as it was a few decades ago.

Although things are slightly different now, we still feel that becoming a lawyer can be a fulfilling and profitable career.

Here are some of our top reasons why we recommend becoming a lawyer in 2018.

1.Salary and Earning Potential

Lawyers are one of the highest paid jobs in the USA, the median annual income in 2017 for a lawyer was $120,000.

Keep in mind that this is just the median, there are numerous opportunities to earn above that median if you know your stuff.

2. Engagement and Challenges

Many people end up bored with their choice of job and work. A lawyers job never gets easy, and is always intellectually challenging. This means you most likely won’t suffer from workplace boredom.

3. Flexability

You have the option to be your own boss and set your own hours. Not many other jobs that pay $100,000+ offer such flexibility.


Being a lawyer isn’t all about the money. You will find that people respect and acknowledge your presence often, which can come as a perk of it’s own.
