American Law School Student Paths
In America, getting involved in public policy, politics, or government frequently requires or nearly requires a law degree (usually from a prestigious university). A hoard of well-qualified students choose this path each year. While it may be well-trod, there isn't a lot of EA or 80,000 Hours specific advice on how best to navigate going into the public sector. Party politics is one thing and has more readily available advice. But 80,000 Hours offers no American advice similar to the Fast Stream UK approach for civil service. I think there is an eager hoard of future lawyers who would be plenty grateful. Plus, it could yield more EA-focused governance moving forward.
I am also studying law and want to become just like a famous DUI attorney Los Angeles about whom I read online at http://www.duilawyerlosangeles.com. I want to save people but also want to teach them lesson so that they don’t repeat such a thing in their life.
