I once asked he-who-shall-not-be-named, what life was like for a Lawyer. Its funny how he replied by first giving me a lopsided smile. “It wasn’t easy at the start” he said, referring to the long hours and the non-stop work. Then he began talking about Filipino lawyers working for International companies but who were still living in the Philippines. He went into detail about how the growth in telecommunications has provided a way to supply the international demand for brilliant lawyers who don’t want to leave their country of origin, which is a wonderful thing considering that when it comes to one’s career, opportunities become limited when one has a family to think about. Because of concerns about uprooting the family, most people forego advancements in their careers to protect and maintain the comfortable lifestyle their family has gotten used to. But because of the continuous growth of technology, which facilitates easy access and communication between different societies, it has opened many windows of opportunities to a great number of brilliant people, while at the same time addressing their most cherished and personal concerns.
