My parents REALLY want me to be a lawyer. My mother says it's exciting work, and you spend most of your time in court, rather than doing paperwork. Is this true? If not, what is it really like to practise law?

OK. That description of law isn't what most people experience, so it might be worth trying to get some first-hand experience of it in the form of work experience.

This isn't true for anyone

The daily tasks encountered vary widely depending on which side of the profession you're in, your practice area, how senior you are, etc.
