I wanted to run an idea past this board and get some opinions, as I consider law school and my life/career path afterwards. I am fully aware that this is a bit of a pipe dream, so if it’s completely unrealistic please say so. Basically, my family/geographic ties are split between both coasts, and so I intend on living and making a career in either Nova Scotia or British Columbia after going through law school. It’s making that choice between the two that’s difficult however. Either way ideally I’d like to work in small practice, nothing glamourous, just working in wills/estates, family law, real estate, etc. in a small, probably rural, office and make an honest living.
My question then is, would it be possible to pursue that type of job for only part of the year, in order to live in both places? I.e. work in that type of practice (either my own or one shared with one or more other lawyers) for like October to April in BC, then spend the summer in NS, perhaps continuing to work remotely, but ideally also pursuing my dream of having a hobby farm. Thoughts? Is finding a work arrangement where you’re only physically present for part of the year even remotely possible in the field of law? Or is this just completely infeasible?
