As I see it's hard to go the lawyer route, but I see on lipcon.com it's easier to become a maritime lawyer. It's not the same as buying a lawyer at a court, but you will also have to handle accidents, injuries, and assaults that had happened in the sea. The way you will work will be the same, but the cases you will judge will be very different from the work that a usual lawyer does. It's so hard to become a lawyer nowadays that half of the people get rid of this dream only when they know how much they must work for it. And the rest o them on the way to it when they get so tired of working hard and getting nothing in replace.
