Sonia Sotomayor On Being A Lawyer
by Jamison Koehler on January 13, 2013
Q: Would you describe yourself as being tough on the bench?
Q: You’re demanding.
A: Tough, yes, in the sense that I want lawyers to be prepared. I think that being a lawyer is one of the best jobs in the whole wide world.
A: You want to know why? Because every lawyer, no matter whom they represent, is trying to help someone, whether it’s a person, corporation, a government entity, or a small or big business. To me, lawyering is the height of service — and being involved in this profession is a gift. Any lawyer who is unhappy should go back to square one and start again.
