Well, according to a survey conducted by Lawyers.com, those kinds of parental inclinations probably haven't changed much. Parents of the world still see a bright future for their children in the legal profession:
- 64% of survey respondents with children in the household want their child to become a lawyer.
- Moms (55%) are more likely to be interested in having a lawyer as a son- or daughter-in-law than dads (38%).
- 80% of parents with household incomes of less than $25,000 per year said they’d like their child to become a lawyer, versus 54% of those with household incomes over $75,000.
Of course, the survey probably didn't ask parents if they want their kids to become rock and roll stars...
So kids of the world, decide for yourselves.
But truth be told, law is a pretty good gig. Still. Always.
