I’m thinking of going to law school, but I’m extremely shy. Can someone who is an introvert make it in the law?

Q: I’m thinking of going to law school, but I’m extremely shy. Can someone who is an introvert make it in the law?

A: Contrary to popular opinion, most lawyers actually are introverts. So, yes, you can succeed in the profession as a naturally shy person. In that most lawyers would be wise to listen more and speak less, your shyness may even be an asset. My advice is to work on embracing your shy nature rather than seeing it as a limitation. As we always try to prove in an interview, your perceived weaknesses may also be your strengths.
