In any of the movies or soapies I have seen, it all looks so very glamorous - one sees a courtroom scene, which is ideal for a movie (they must have millions of sets for both court rooms and hospitals also!).  In reality, however, being a lawyer in the corporate environment is actually very hard work, involving copious amounts of administration and an amazing back-up in the form of support staff.

But first one has to acquire the prowess in order to reach that status, and even those who do attain their degrees and pass the required board exam, plus enter into articles of clerkship, have to constantly refer to the vast law libraries, which are part of the layout in the Firm.



Is it the dedication required of such a lady attorney, which provides the opportunity for the Antagonist, in my "soon to be published" story to endeavour to sweep the man of her dreams away?



What causes ambition to such an extent, where one's personal life has to come second, and all else is perhaps jeopardized in the process.
