  • people take you to court.
  • You don't have to pay the outrageous legal fees because you can be your own lawyer
  • You can make a lot of money and you get free legal advice and representation.
  • Legally, the biggest benefit is the Privilege of Confidentiality. Only doctors have a similar unqualified privilege. If someone tells you something in a professional capacity, you pretty much cannot be forced to disclose it no matter what. The other "benefits" are that you are legally allowed to represent people when they need a lawyer, and you may give legal advice. In reality, you may or may not be paid a lot. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of lawyers do not make a lot of money, but a few of them make a great deal. You probably won't be much good representing yourself. Most lawyers actually know only a few narrow areas of the law. When they need a lawyer they need help like everyone else. Most of us aren't objective enough to solve our own problems with objectivity. Being a lawyer does put in you a better position to understand the legal advice that you do get and to put it in the appropriate perspective. And, much of what they teach in law school about corporate law and taxation can be useful if you become a business person and need to understand those things. Finally, in a business context people are often a bit intimidated if they know you are an attorney which can be helpful in negotiations.
  • its probably rewarding since youre helping out people
