    Someone said this to me recently. Needless to say, as an aspiring law student, I was a bit disheartened at the remark. Is it really just about money and politics out in the 'real world'?

    Ridiculous.

    Once you have the skills, it's what you make it.

    Protect the environment, work with working class clients, there are hundreds of selfless career paths you can follow.

    Some doctors save lives, others do tit jobs. It's your choices that will determine your future.

    Morons will be morons, OP. It's up to you if you want to dedicate your career at a top commercial law firm fighting for the rights of tobacco companies against overtly restrictive EU regulations...or join the government and prevent 'slander' of its officials...or join the ILO and help draft seafaring treaties...or join the African Prisons Project and dedicate yourself to opposing the death penalty and human rights abuses in various countries in Africa.

    The world is your oyster.

    There will always be people who get their kicks from putting others down - be it directly or indirectly. Ignore them - as others have said a law career, just like life, is what you make it.

    A cynic may say that life is all about money and politics, and for some people maybe it is - but most of us know better

    There isn't really a significant connection between politics and law in this country.

    I guess most non-criminal law is about money. But we live in a capitalist society, money is how we allocate resources, so this applies to any job you can think of.
