The only surprising result I see above is the high Humanitarian score. However, there is a fairly strong correlation between the Intellectual personality trait and the Humanitarian trait (which I think is related to an inability to ignore the world's problems if you are more curious). Thus, at least based on this sample population, law school graduates despite clear aggressive tendencies (high scores on Need to Dominate and Conflict seeking) do at least self rate on caring about making a positive difference in the world.
Interestingly, Law school graduates scored lower on the Wealth trait (-1.22) than the average test taker. That could be because they are actually not more likely to come from wealth, or it could mean their perception of what qualifies as wealthy is higher than the average SimilarMinds test taker. Also, the sample size's average age of 34.4 might over reflect the law school loan debt period. The Extravagance scores suggest they have a luxury lifestyle preference, but they only rate slightly higher on the Materialism trait (+2.39). They are more selfish than average (Accommodation -2.87) but as you can see from the above list, many other traits better distinguish them.

The results here match the Big Five profile of the law school graduate sample. Test takers who scored as SCOEIs self rated highest on the lawyer test item. This is fairly strong evidence of personality preference predicting actual career path.
