This lawyer thing becomes more real by the minute

So the closer I get to graduation (April, 2014!), the more I’m toying with ideas about what kind of law I want to practice. Note that sentence does not say what kind of lawyer I want to be. Because the two are different. Vastly different - and it annoys me to no end when people ask the latter, because I fight the urge every time to reply to “what kind of lawyer do you want to me” with a quick and dirty “why, craptastic of course!”

So, I’ve narrowed my topics to specifically exclude things like commercial law (corporations, etc.) and insurance defense (because that’s what I do now and I HATE it). But, in the possibility topics, criminal law will always be my number one choice (but I have some severe student loan debt to pay off so being a humble civil servant might actually have to wait a while) and I am really interested in tax law (yes, Federal Tax Law), some areas of family law, personal injury law, products liability is interesting to me and so is the idea of becoming an immigration lawyer, so to say I have some decisions to make, is like, the understatement of the year!
