What is the most stressful part of being a figure in criminology, criminal justice, and or any law related major career?
Personally, I would say the most stressful aspect of this career (speaking from a law perspective) is the dependence your clients have on you. There is a lot of pressure to perform well and advocate for your clients. Its especially more stressful the more high stakes the case. However, it is definitely worth it, in my opinion!
From the law related part, it really depends on where you go with your degree. If you go to a firm, the most stressful part is making your billable hours and constantly being on call. If you go into politics and writing laws, the most stressful part is working with stakeholders to put something together to pass both chambers and get it signed by the President of the United States. Most bills are months or years in the making if they are done well. But as @Raven Peters said, it is definitely worth it when you see something you wrote signed into law and helping people like it was intended.
