该题询问学生选择法律作为自己专业的缘由，定位到第二自然段第二句话：The best lawyers made skyscrapers-full of money, tempting ever more students to pile into law schools. Skyscrapers-full of money即是financial rewards的具体内容。Attraction是tempting的同义替换，故正确答案是D。
27.Which of the following adds to the costs of legal education in most American states?

[C]Pursuing a bachelor’s degree in another major.

该题询问是什么因素增加了美国大多数州的法律教育费用，定位到与教育花销有关的第三自然段：There is just one path for a lawyer in most American states: a four-year undergraduate degree in some unrelated subject, then a three-year law degree at one of 200 law schools authorized by the American Bar Association and an expensive preparation for the bar exam. This leaves today’s average law-school graduate with $100,000 of debt on top of undergraduate debts. a bachelor’s degree in another major是undergraduate degree in some unrelated subject的同义替换，bachelor’s degree是undergraduate degree的另一种表述方式，another major是unrelated subject的同义表述。
28.Hindrance to the reform of the legal system originates from
[A]lawyers’and clients’strong resistance.
[B]the rigid bodies governing the profession.
[C]the stem exam for would-be lawyers.
该题询问司法体系改革的阻力的来源，可以定位到第五段第一句和最后一句：The other reason why costs are so high is the restrictive guild-like ownership structure of the business. There is pressure for change from within the profession, but opponents of change among the regulators insist that keeping outsiders out of a law firm isolates lawyers from the pressure to make money rather than serve clients ethically. opponents of change among the regulators ,反对改革的人来自监管人员中。regulators即是the restrictive guild-like ownership structure的维护者，是选项中的bodies governing the profession，rigid是restrictive的近义词。故选项是B。
