I know nothing about being a lawyer, but here are some thoughts that would apply to any job shadowing situation.

What is something rewarding about being a family lawyer? What is the most challenging part about being a family lawyer? What advice would you give a young person interested in becoming a lawyer? What is a warning you would give someone headed in that direction? Where did you go to school and what degrees did you get? How has those specific degrees/school(s) helped you (like, why did you choose them)?

Hope this helps you!
