In fact, Law itself is not such a cut-and-dried, sensible discipline, as people lean to think. It is more in the nature of a attitude, dealing with the most conceptual of concepts such as justice, right and wrong, fairness, guilt and purity, human rights and the duty of citizens to one another. It is how these principles are practical in a practical manner to individual situations that brings the study and practice of law from the abstract to the real.
Here are just a few of the areas of specialty in the legal profession today:
Loans and mortgages, Refinancing, Consolidation of loans, Taxes, Criminal Defense or tribunal, Personal Injury, Registration of Domain Names, Wrongful death suits, Insurance settlements, Medical claims, Malpractice suits, Bankruptcy, Divorce, Pre-Nuptial Agreements, Trademarks, Copyrights, Patents, Wills, Inheritance disputes, Custody agreements, Product liability, Business contracts
This partial list demonstrates how carefully every aspect of our society is impacted by the legal system and lawyers, also called attorneys, are the back of the system both in advocating for clients and in advising them. It is the job of lawyers not to write the laws but to apply them to particular conditions.
The occupation residential slowly and two distinct types of lawyers had appeared, actually creating two branches of the profession, which are still operating today: barristers and solicitors. A barrister is roughly the same to a trial lawyer and though a solicitor may appear in a lower court, he or she mainly advises clients and prepares cases for barristers to present in higher courts. But there was a natural difference built into their class scheme. On the one hand, only people of the upper classes could afford to be erudite well enough to practice law but it was thought to be under members of those classes to practice a profession at all. One should, in those days, have sufficient inherited income or income from property to have a safe livelihood without having a work.
Most lawyers have a specialization based on their own particular skills and preferences. Trial lawyers, even if they should prepare very carefully earlier, must feel happy “thinking on their feet” and speaking without prior preparation in public. Trial work, which may be done by any lawyer, is particularly matched to people with those skills and with a taste for playing what amounts to a game of strategy, sometimes with clients’ property, freedom or even lives, at stake.
Even within legal specialties there is suppleness. For instance, an attorney who has a reputation for being especially well versed in environmental law may take cases for the side of corporations being accused of polluting or for a citizens’ group attempting to sue such corporations for damages.
Some attorneys specialize in car accidents, on behalf of injured people, on behalf of people charged with causing accidents or on behalf of insurance companies. Some specialize in medical misconduct, on behalf of either patients or physician. Those who focus in courtroom criminal law, either as prosecutors or defense attorneys, are sometimes considered to be the “stars” of the legal system as they often are the most evident in terms of media reporting.
Whatever their area of expertise, if they plan to have one, every lawyer must go many years of education and training before they are approved. In most states this means that after earning a college degree a person must graduate from a law school, which has been accredited by the Indian Bar Association. They must then take, and pass, a bar examination. In a few states it is possible to take the bar exam after a kind of apprenticeship in a law office. This method was the one universally used before qualified law schools came into being.
Because of the fact that attorneys sometimes are called on to protect detested clients, they have sometimes been the bump of jokes at their outlay. But since it is almost impossible for a person to find their way through any legal embarrassing situation by themselves, there is no doubt that the legal profession will play a prominent role in our society for the predictable future.
