For those asking, I really as an immigrant would like to do something like immigration law or even not practice necessarily but do other things that help that social good. Thank you TBWA for posting the volunteer site! I’ll look into that!

You can also look into becoming a paralegal (if you’re in the U.S.) It will give you an inside look at the world of law without having to commit to law school.

I had a friend that did this a decade ago. gave up a 70k advertising job she hated to do it. lost 3 years of salary, took on six figures of debt, and ended up in a 60k job with shittier hours that she hated even more

Check out government contracting agencies or code for America and you can design for something such as immigration (if that's what you're interested in)
