... if I hadn't become a lawyer then probably a master carpenter to carry out projects at dizzying heights. However, not having achieved that, I settled instead for shepherding 40 sheep and lambs on the meadows of my family’s Bioland farm in my free time.

... if I hadn't become a lawyer, I would probably have become a writer and my work would still consist primarily of writing and research. The advantage would be that I could freely choose which subjects I wished to write about. However, on the other hand, the advantage of being a lawyer is that you come across stories and incidents from real life that one could ever imagined...

... if I hadn't become a lawyer, I guess I would have more time for my family these days. Instead of law, I would have studied Graeco-Roman archaeology. But then again even if I had chosen the latter, I probably still wouldn’t be at home very often.

... if I had not become a lawyer, I would probably still be the CEO of an advertising agency or perhaps I would have become a tennis coach. In my junior year of high school, I founded an advertising agency selling designer name cards under the label “Rakosi Design”. While at law school, I became a certified tennis coach at the Tennis Association of Hessen and managed to keep my head above water by giving tennis lessons.

... if I hadn't become a lawyer then I would probably still be a civil servant working for the Bavarian tax authorities ("my former life"). In my ‘former life’, in addition to taking the Abitur on the second educational path, I was actively involved in a diverse range of activities – from football to table tennis, from periods of performing community service in geriatric care to being a taxi driver in Frankfurt am Main and working in the student administration while at university. ...now cycling, working out at the gym, Nordic walking, hiking and cross-country skiing is my way of balancing out my sometimes stressful job as a lawyer.
