The topics in scope for this stack exchange tend to reflect creations of the law, procedures, and interactions with lawyers as outlined here:
- Statutes or court decisions
- Legal terms and language doctrines and theory
- Legal process and procedure
- Historical legal applications
- Dealing with legal professionals
And the one notable off-topic reason is specific legal advice.
There doesn't seem to be an indication about whether questions realting to the profession of a lawyer itself is within scope. This is something that I am curious about, and those who would want to become lawyers would also be curious about. This is distinct from this dealing with lawyers question in that I am talking about the profession of a lawyer itself, but similar in that it deals with an unmentioned area of scope.
The question I was planning to ask (which I did not ask yet, since I was not sure of scope) was based off this question from the Academia SE about patience needed in a PhD. My idea for it goes as follows:
In addition to the work required for schooling, what additional grit must the common lawyer be prepared for on the job?
The purpose of this question would help give perspective to those on this stack exchange that might have an interest of being a lawyer. It's not unreasonable to assume that those interested in the law on this sight might intersect with the group of people who are interested in becoming a lawyer.
Are questions about being the profession of a lawyer on or off topic?
