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.
