Argument: Many hugely successful people started with a law degree
Hindi Greenberg. "So What Else Can You Do with Your Law Degree?" American Bar Association. July/August 2005: "Lawyers contemplating change are in good company. Consider the following one-time attorneys: Mahatma Gandhi (Inner Temple, London, 1891); Sir Thomas More ( Lincoln’s Inn, London, 1501); Peter Tchaikovsky (School of Jurisprudence, St. Petersburg, 1859); Studs Terkel (University of Chicago, 1934); Fidel Castro (University of Havana, 1950); and Howard Cosell (New York University, 1940). Other former lawyers include the two founders of the California Pizza Kitchen restaurant chain; the founders of Nolo Press, a self-help legal book publisher; and Mortimer Zuckerman, a real estate tycoon and the owner of the magazine U.S. News & World Report."
