Living Like a Lion

"A law degree arms you to do great things with your life. To give strong voice to the voiceless, to fight for people who have never had anyone fight for them before, to sue the government and its agencies when they abuse their power, to equalize every fight on behalf of the littlest person, to win impossible cases, to take it to everybody who deserves it, and be the last best hope for people who have lost all hope – that is living like a lawyer lion. And that is living."
