Choosing Your Career
Law Brings Large Success and Good Financial Re
turns to Those Who Have Analytical Mind , Judge
of Human Nature and Other Accomplishments.
BY JOHN W. DAVIS,
As told to J. V. Fitzgerald.
Note.—This U the seventh of a series
Os twenty-four articles designed to help
young men and women And careers
which appeal to them and for which
they are fitted. Each article has been
prepared by a leader in some one field.
John W. Davis is an outstanding lawyer.
He was in Congress from West Virginia
before becoming solicitor general of the
United States. He was Ambassador to
Great Britain from ISIS to 1921 and was
Democratic nominee for President, in
1924. He was president of the American
Bar Association in 1922. He was edu
cated at Washington and Lee University.
YOU should have a good digestion,
to quote a famous English chief
.justice. If you are to become a
successful lawyer. Likewise, you
need to possess real character
and the industrious traits of the bee.
The profession also demands an analyti
cal mind—the ability to get at the root
of a proposition and to separate essen
tials from non-essentials.
Furthermore, you must be an excel
lent Judge of human nature and have

THE EVENING STAR, WASHINGTON. D. C-, SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 1930.
a sound moral sense, together with the
determination to work hard until you
have accomplished ypur set task. The
law is no profession for the drone or
shirker. To succeed in it you have to
labor and study unceasingly and to put
in long hours In office and court. An
old saying has it that a lawyer works
hard, lives well and dies poor. There
is much truth in it.
You should be something of a busi
ness man to make strides In the pro
fession. Very often you will be called
upon to advise clients on matters that
have a decided business aspect aside
from the legal. Such problems require
more than mere knowledge of the law.
Great Oratory Unnecessary.
Don’t think you have to be a great
orator to succeed as a lawyer. If your
reasoning powers are of high order and
you have a logical mind, with the other
qualifications, you wilt find ample sat
isfaction and sufficient Anancial re
wards without the gift of oratory. Some
of the greatest lawyers in the country
ate not famed for their talents as
speakers. Daniel Webster summed up
the matter when he said:
"The power of clear statement Is the
great power of the bar."
If you have the gifts of persuasion,
clear and logical expression and are
keen and alert, you will succeed as a
trial lawyer. If you lack some of these
qualities, but possess other necessary
traits, you might get the best results
by devoting your time to office work.
Long preliminary training is required
of the law student nowadays before he
Is qualified to seek admission to the bar
in. most States. The requirements will
become even more stringent as the years
go by. Generally speaking, you can
utilize six years of collegiate work In
order to be best equipped for your ea-,
reer in the legal profession.
Buch a course, combining the cultural
with the legal, will furnish you with
the broad general education that is
I more and more being demanded of law
yers. It will equip you with a knowl
edge of history, philosophy, literature,
economics and with a broad grasp of
English, provided, of course, that you
are an intelligent student. With such
a background your legal education will
have a greater value than if you re
stricted your studies to the law.
Those of you who can’t afford the
longer course need not be discouraged. |
You can obtain a broad, cultural back- t
ground by wide and Intelligent reading \
Do as much of this as you can, regard- <
less of your preliminary education. The
variety of cases that arise in the prac- 1
tlce of law demand a knowledge ot
nftmy subjects.
When your law course has been com
pleted, and you have been admitted to
the bar, your next step will depend on
circumstances. If you already have
had practical service in a law office and
have the necessary finances and pros
pects of an immediate clientele, you can
start practice in your own office.
Smaller Community.
If you intend practicing in a smaller
community, where, if your opportunities
may be somewhat limited, your living
expenses will be less and the demands
put upon you physically fewer, this
would be the wiser course for most of
you. Outside the big cities the finan
cial rewards at the top are not so great,
but they are bigger in the intermediate
stages.
If It is your plan to practice law In a

larger city, you would perhaps find it
of advantage to enter the employ of a
firm. If you have not completed the
necessary clerkship It would be neces
sary for you to do this. You can earn
on an average Os $2,000 a year at the
start if you can qualify for a position

You will have to be an outstanding
student in college to get such an oppor
tunity. Your future, If yen make such
a connection, Is in your own hands. If
you hang out your shingle In a smaller
community you will be doing well If
you are making expenses at the end of
•two or three years. However, you will
have a chance there to emerge sooner
as a figure In public and professional
affairs.
Big law firms In the cities will offer
you plenty of opportunity If you have
ability. You will have the chance to
work on cases of increasing Importance
as you progress, whether you associate
yourself with one upon finishing yout
college course or after a period of prac
tice outside the metropolitan areas.
Such an association might lead to a
partnership or to an important post
with a big corporation. Pew of you
can attain such success, but the goal
and Incentive are there for the capable
ones.
- Financial Gain Secondary.
Don't be Induced to take up the
profession by prospects of financial gain.
While you will be assured of a living
| If you are capable, you should not entei
practice unless the law appeals to you
ns an attractive life’s wont.
rhe profession offers you a great
opportunity for public service and a
gateway to public life*, because you are'
constantly studying the problems of
government. For that reason you are
better equipped to deal with them than
the average man In other walks of life.
The practice of law furnishes a con
stant stimulant to your intellectual
powers through the variety of demands
put upon you. While you will have to,
do a certain amount of drudgery, you
will have no dull times mentally.
And that, aside from financial and
other considerations, is a decided rec
ompense.
