Criminal Defense Jobs
As crime escalates and prisons reach capacity, there is a growing call for criminal defense jobs to represent clients accused of a crime. Criminal defense jobs may include being an attorney or a paralegal who specializes in interpreting laws and preparing cases to defend their clients.

Clients can be either indiviudals or groups and can be defended against a wide range of crimes to theft, traffic violations, assault, embezzlement or fraud, to name a few options.

A criminal attorney will be expected to defend their client in court by reviewing the accusations, interpreting the law, researching similar cases and precedents, interviewing witnesses, negotiating plea agreements if necessary, creating motions and appeals if a case is lost and is appealed to a higher court.

A criminal defense attorney is required to complete the necessary educational requirements: graduating from a four-year college with a BA, followed by a JD from an accredited three year law school. The attorney will also need to pass the bar exam for the state they want to work in.

A paralegal acts in a supportive role for the attorney, helping in the background preparations for a trial, including helping to locate and interview witnesses and review applicable court cases and preparing briefs to assist the attorney. There are paralegal degrees and certificate courses available, but it is not an absolute necessity in some law firms.

Attorneys and paralegals can work in private practices specializing in criminal law, in a district attorney's office or for a public defender, who works with clients that cannot afford their own legal counsel. They will need to be prepared to defend their client in many different courts including federal, appellate or district courses, depending on the nature of the crime.

Because of the variety of laws that can be broken, a criminal attorney or paralegal has to be aware of how these laws apply to their client and work to defend their clients rights after they are accused of these crimes.

There are many opportunities for people to work in the criminal law niche as criminal activity continues to increase. However, there is a wide salary range for criminal lawyers ranging from a modest public defendant salary to attorneys who have high profile clients and cases. Criminal defense jobs are available across the country for the right candidates.

Criminal Law Study

Law school study of criminal law falls into three categories: substantive, procedural, and constitutional. Substantively, you will be involved in determining what actually a crime is; procedurally, in the details of prosecution; constitutionally, in the protections set up for the defendant because the state or federal government is the plaintiff in the lawsuit.

Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure

The glamorous side of the law! Homicides; Miranda rights; Law & Order, O.J., Kato, and Lance. In fact, Criminal Law is so glamorous that it's actually two classes: Substantive Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure. In some schools, the two are taught as separate courses, but in others, they are combined (too bad, you still only get credit for one class). Think of the separation this way: Substantive Criminal Law, which is generally referred to simply as Criminal Law, is whether what you did was a crime (and if so, what crime); Criminal Procedure is, generally, what the government can do to prove it. Or think of it this way while you watch NYPD Blue: Substantive Criminal Law dictates what evidence the police need to find, while Criminal Procedure lets you tick off which constitutional rights Detective Andy Sipowicz has violated on the way there.

Criminal Lawyers

This article discusses that criminal lawyers are responsible for dealing with offences related to drugs, robbery or sex, etc. Those aspiring to become a criminal lawyer must have the necessary qualification as well as their ability to deal with complicated matters.
