Lawyer Jobs
A lawyer, also known as an attorney, is a legal professional who advises and represents his or her clients in civil or criminal cases. An attorney can be a general practitioner, or he can be someone who specializes in a certain area such as family, environmental, probate, real estate or criminal law. There are many other lawyer jobs in addition to those mentioned above. Most of the time, attorneys are assisted by paralegals.

If someone wants to become an attorney, they have to attend three years of law school after getting a bachelor's degree at another university. Before this person can start to practice as a lawyer, they will need to be admitted in the bar of their state. They also need to pass the written examination in certain states and may have to do ethics examinations.

A lawyer's job starts when they join a law firm or serve as an attorney in a company. After some years, he may be allowed to be a partner in the law firm. Sometimes lawyers go on to become judges, while others may join the faculty of a law firm. The job of a lawyer may also include representing his clients in the court of law. He has to present evidence on behalf of the client that he is defending in a civil or criminal case. He also has to present the evidence that will prosecute the person who is being charged in a civil or criminal case. He has to interpret the law, make sure regulations are followed properly, and make proper rulings for the clients. He can be involved in preparing documents for different contracts. These include the prenuptial agreement, leases and wills. He can also negotiate the settlement in a civil dispute.

A lawyer also can choose a career in different places. He can work as a civil lawyer who is involved in various disputes. A civil lawyer can work in different cases such as breach of contract, property issues and debt collection. An immigration lawyer is needed in the countries where there is an influx of skilled immigrants. The law often changes on a regular basis in order to restrict the number of the people who enter the country. The lawyer helps a client obtain citizenship. An international lawyer may also deal with different issues that include corporate issues related to international agreement, human rights and government policies. A criminal lawyer is either a criminal defense lawyer or criminal prosecutor. A defense lawyer presents the client who has been accused of committing a criminal offense. A prosecutor lawyer works for the state and he has to show the evidence that the accused is guilty. An environmental lawyer is a person who helps create awareness about ongoing environmental exploitation.

The Lawyer and his Two Sides

What does a lawyer do and how he does it? But right now some of the specific things a lawyer does in his daily practice and the kind of professional life that he leads are taken up. A part of the difficulty in describing what a lawyer's life is like comes from the fact that much of what we "know" about lawyers just isn't so. With respect to doctors, for instance, the picture in the mind of the public corresponds fairly accurately with what the doctor actually does, for in our normal family life we come into rather close and frequent contact with doctors. But with lawyers we are not so close. The conception is apt to be distorted. We may picture the lawyer as a leading actor in a dramatic criminal trial, perhaps a murder trial, little realizing that only a small percentage of lawyers have any criminal practice, as it is called, at all. So, at the very outset, let's wipe the slate clean, as it were, of preconceived notions of what a lawyer does, and approach the whole subject as we would a problem in nuclear physics, with an open mind and an eagerness to learn.

Lawyers down the Memory Lane

Most people do not appreciate the crucial role that lawyers have played throughout history. Lawyers have been present at nearly every important event since the very beginning. Here are only a few examples:

What Does It Mean When a Lawyer Says “Permission to Treat the Witness as Hostile?”

We asked attorneys throughout the United States what it means when a lawyer says “Permission to treat the witness as hostile?” Several attorneys responded and our readers might find what they said interesting. We hope you enjoy their answers.
