Other qualifications

The practice of law involves a great deal of responsibility. Individuals planning careers in law should like to work with people and be able to win the respect and confidence of their clients, associates, and the public. Perseverance, creativity, and reasoning ability also are essential to lawyers, who often analyze complex cases and handle new and unique legal problems.

Trial lawyers, who specialize in trial work, must be able to think quickly and speak with ease and authority. In addition, familiarity with courtroom rules and strategy is particularly important in trial work.

  2. Very usefull information. I am a young aspiring lawyer myself going through education atm, before i became aware of this informative blog i would spend hours reading books and studying hard. I realise now that the steps to becoming a lawyer are easy and simple, i threw my books away and read your daily updates instead, the wealth of related lawyering information on this blog is unparalled.

  4. you're totally right, if you want to become a successful lawyer you first need to earn peoples respect and trust - which could well be one of the hardest things to do. I await more posts to tell me how to achieve this :)

  8. I don't like working with people. Immediately making me dislike this job. And most others.

    I don't like working, if I'm honest.

    Perhaps I'm just lazy.

  9. Interesting Quote but and it is right, although it shouldnt because if law is meant to fit people differently then thats why the rich and famous can be found with 3 ounces of Heroin or cocaine with 5 hookers in the car, booze and running red lights and be slapped only with a fine and never spend 1 second in jail. Thats simply wrong but hey its the world we live in.
