    Pros

    There is a wide variety of cases under federal jurisdiction and the need for representation is always there. It is clearly challenging work.
    It is perhaps the most rewarding work there is to do as a lawyer.

    Cons

    The standard is perfection; no room for error. The stakes are enormously high and the work can be daunting. The expectations of clients and the courts are tough. There's easier ways to be a lawyer; but they aren't better because they're not challenging.
