Lawyer Info

What is this job like?
Lawyers give people and companies advice and tell them what they can and cant do under the law. Sometimes, they hire lawyers to take their side in court against other people or companies, or against the government.

Lawyers spend a lot of time doing research. To be a good lawyer, a person much be good at finding facts in books, on computers, and in other places. Lawyers also interview people to get information.

After doing research, lawyers make arguments to show that the people they work for should win in court. Some lawyers speak in court, but many lawyers don't. Lawyers also write legal documents like contracts and wills. They need to be very specific and well-written.

Lawyers do most of their work in officers, law libraries, and courtrooms. They sometimes meet in clients' homes or businesses. Some lawyers meet clients in hospitals or prisons. Lawyers often work long hours, especially during a trial in court.

More coming soon!
