Brasher Law Firm attorney Clint Brasher participated in the Southeast Texas Career Expo for area high schools. As a member of the Jefferson County Bar Association, he volunteered to talk to students interested in a career in law. He spoke to them about all of the different things you can do with a law degree. Thousands of area students attended.
The students were interested in various areas of practice, including criminal justice, criminal defense, trial law, and other jobs that are available to those with a law degree. Because many of Clint Brasher’s close friends from law school use their law degree outside of the courtroom, he shared some of those career opportunities with the students.
A law degree opens up lots of doors beyond the courtroom. It can be a gateway to government work and law enforcement. A law degree also provides the ability to help others. It can even be used to help people in other countries. Some U.S. attorneys work as judges and consultants in developing democratic countries helping them develop constitutions, write laws, act as judges, and other related things. Even the State of Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife needs lawyers, and one of Clint Brasher’s classmates works there.
The students were interested in learning more about the different things lawyers do. They were also curious about the steps and requirements needed to attend law school. What a great experience to meet with interested students from the area.
