ABOUT BECOMING A LAWYER IN THE PHILIPPINES
A frank, spot on article about becoming a lawyer in the Philippines. Heck, they’ve even made a carnival out of the yearly Bar exams.
I think we’ve made lawyers bigger than life, so that anyone who could do passable English would want to become one, whatever his true aptitude or genuine interest. That is what we get for being a society that is all agog over lawyers. Too bad, scientists, inventors, engineers, mathematicians, programmers do not get as near an adulation.
