Lawyers act as both advocates and advisors in our society. As an advocate they represent a party in a criminal or civil trial by presenting evidence to support their client’s case. As an advisor, they counsel their clients about their legal rights and obligations and suggest different courses of action on business and personal matters.
Training to become a lawyer is a long process spanning 7 years: 4 years of undergraduate study and 3 years of law school. Most law schools require prospective students to sit the LSAT prior admission. Once you have completed your study, you are required to sit the bar in the state or jurisdiction in which you want to practice.
With regards to personality traits, attorneys should persevere, be creative and quick thinkers. If you wish to pursue a career in law, these are some characteristics of the profession that should be noted.
