What does the title of this one say? That I’m a lawyer? It’s not that there are not other things I can do. There are, but the title of this post is a little misleading. I am a lawyer, but I don’t practice for the sake of practicing. I practice to benefit the people I love most.
This post is an advertisement for the law firm where I work. It is an online video that shows, in minute detail, exactly what they do. It is a lot of fun.
Yes, that is what I said. I practiced law for the sake of practicing. You might say it is the opposite of the title, but it is not. A lawyer is a person who is trained in the legal process and educated in the laws of the land. Lawyers work in a particular field of law that has a set of rules and procedures that help them solve problems. Lawyers have to be trained and educated in that field for it to be their thing.
I’ll not go into the rules of how my law firm specializes in the law of this world.
But I don’t believe in that. I believe in the value of the law as a whole, and it is the people who practice law, which is the very thing that is in direct conflict with my belief, who will create the system of law that is in place that will not only uphold the values that you would think law can uphold, but which will also advance the cause of justice.
To answer your question, yes, I’m a lawyer. (But I’m also a painter and a writer.
So, in my opinion, the issue is not whether you are a lawyer, nor is it whether you are a painter, nor is it whether you are a writer. It is about your profession. It is about the value of your profession. And if you think that the value of the profession is in conflict with your beliefs, then you are deluding yourself. The values of practice that you are practicing are not in conflict with your beliefs in the profession.
That’s a very important point that can be misleading, because it is easy to mislabel something as “artistic practice.” As soon as we label something as artistic practice, it becomes the thing that is most valuable to us. So we are looking at our profession as something that is valuable, but it’s not. It is not in conflict with our beliefs, as long as we have our beliefs in the profession. It is a profession.
The reason why you are in conflict with your beliefs is because you believe in the belief that your profession is not in conflict with your beliefs.
As long as we are in a profession that is both in and out of conflict with our beliefs, we really won’t be in a position to be able to use it to make our beliefs come true. The thing we need to be aware of is that most of what we practice does not in anyway conflict with our beliefs. We are in conflict with our beliefs only in the sense that it conflicts with our beliefs that we have about the profession.
