Construction Attorney Job Openings
With the abundance of construction in the United States, you can often find construction attorney job openings. A construction attorney helps to make sure that construction sites and all documentation is up to date and in compliance with all applicable laws.

As a construction attorney, you will be tasked with preparing all legal documentation, including contracts, necessary to complete the construction project. These may include contract records and associated materials, all necessary construction permits and what licenses may be necessary to complete the job.

You will need to be versed in governmental agency practices, working with them to ensure that permits and licenses are granted in a timely manner. If there are issues, you will be responsible for negotiating to a satisfactory resolution.

To qualify for this position, you will need to follow the same steps as a traditional attorney. Expect getting the many years of education necessary to learn the intricacies of practicing law. Before even stepping foot in law school, a potential lawyer is required to earn his or her B.A. from an undergraduate school. This will serve as a qualifying factor for a law school, which should be accredited by the American Bar Association. These criteria may be waived in some circumstances, but it is generally a standard requirement. Next, you will have to be in residency at a law school for a certain number of weeks, depending on if you are a full time or part time student. At the time that you complete all required courses, you will be able to obtain a Juris Doctorate (JD) degree from this law school.

You may be required to obtain a Masters of Law Degree (LL.M) if you attended law school in a foreign country.

After completing all of the necessary schooling, you will need to study for the bar exam for the particular state in which you want to practice. A state bar exam generally consists of multiple choice and essay questions and is available to be retaken if you don't pass the first time. When you do pass, you will be able to practice law in that state.

Construction attorney jobs are available across the country and can be a rewarding field for the right candidate.
