The subject of law always fascinated me. Unlike medicine, the practicalities of the subject do not dampen my passion for the subject but rather fuel it. Law is engaging because it requires constant adapting and analyzing. With every case comes a unique set of issues. The challenge of having to work within the bounds of the law while also planning a compelling and forceful case for a client is thrilling. Every word holds tremendous power in law. Practicing law requires eloquence. Anecdotal stories are the hallmark of the best lawyers. There exists no third person perspective in law. I admire how good lawyers can form a message that appeals to people’s emotions and reason. I relish the opportunity to study every minute detail of law and become a practicing lawyer because of all the ways it would challenge me.

While the judicial system can be confusing for average citizens, it poses an even more insurmountable obstacle to certain groups of people, such as those who do not speak English as a first language, who cannot afford a lawyer, or who cannot leave their jobs or other commitments to spend time in court. This problem became poignantly clear to me whenever I would pass by the help center of the SF Superior Court and see lines stretched tens of people deep needing advice on how to navigate the administrative side of the legal system. Such people need to have a more accessible and efficient way of receiving help with court procedures, and I want to discover how the courts are helping or can help ameliorate this

The American Bar Association set professional standards for conduct and certification for lawyers starting in the 19th century (Gufaston& McClellon, 2012). A new model code of professional responsibility has mandated conduction of the procedures of trials that must conform to the core requirements of law set with specific standards (Pollock, 2014). For this very reason of non reliability in regards to set training standards of particular types of lawyers and established practice, Burger (1973) contended that how lawyers trained in and after law school, will ultimately dictate their proficiencies as counsel in our adversary criminal justice system.
