What is a lawyer ?

A lawyer is someone who helps people with legal problems, and advice people with their problems. He also enter in the court procedure. If you want to be a lawyer their are some properties you need to have. The role of the lawyer varies greatly across legal jurisdictions,and so it can be treated here in only the most general terms.

If you have a problems, lawyers have the solution.


A lawyer must understand the problem very fast so he do not waste time. You must be stress resistant. You should be albe to deal with people. A lawyer must be good in talking so he can convince the right so the Judge speaks your victum free. A lawyer you hire in for your legal problems but it is very expensive. You can make serious money with this if you think about it. A lawyer must be solution focused because that is what the people want because you pay the lawyer we talk about the salary from a lawyer in the next paragraph.


During the 3 years that your internship runs you also earn money, of course not the maximum that you can earn as a lawyer. The first year of your internship you earn about €2000 that is quite much. The 2nd year of your internship you earn about €2300. The last year of your internship you earn about €2500. Next to this pay you are entitled to 23 holiday days. You also have right to travel and subsistence allowances. If you done the internship than you are a ''real'' lawyer and you make some serious money. As a lawyer you earn about €100.000 a year that is a big increase. And if you are really good and famous lawyer such like Moskowitz than you earn about €15.000 a month. So in one single year he earns 1.8 million euros. You have to do a big study but at the end you have much money.

Pro deo lawyer

You see that hiring a lawyer is expensvie some people cannot afford a lawyer so they get a pro deo lawyer. These lawyers help people with low incomes with their legal problems. This give their direct access to legal assistance and expert help. In the Netherlands is steablished in the consitution; who need legal help but can not pau is entitled to financial help. that we call ''legal aid.''' The legal aid governed by the legal aid board. In practice the legal aid board paus a large part of the cost of the lawyer at inability the people pay what theuu can the rest pays the gouverment.

Where do lawyers work?

Lawyers can work on different places. On a law firm,with the court. And they work for big companies to solve all their problems. You can think about the oil company Shell they need lawyers because their are people that make problems for them because it is not good for the nature. At the Ministry of Justice at a prison or police office for example. Also the Ministry of Justice needs lawyers to win court case.


To become a lawyer you must done a pre-university education. After that you have to study rights. There are a few choices you can choose about. You can do Toga-master or you study the normal rights the most lawyers choose for the Toga-master training because that is specifically focused on lawyers. So first you do six years about the pre-university and then you do four years Toga-master or the normal rights. The Toga-master study costs €14.200 and the normal rights costs €15.000 because with that training you can do many different things. After all this you do a internship in a law office for about three years. And then you become a real lawyer and you can go work for yourself.

Special rules

To become a lawyer, should you do meet certain. For example, you have to take an oath:’I swear loyalty to the King, obedience to the Constitution and the laws of the english people, that I will not deviate from the respect to the Court and the public Government, and no case will recommend or defend that I honestly don’t believe be fair. And you have doctor’s and master’s degree in rights.’ Also you have to registered as a lawyer. If you have a criminal record then you can not be a lawyer.


The Toga is there to make no difference in clothing. When you wear a Toga you also wear a bef. The colour black is the symbol for the rejection of vanity. The white colour stands for neutrality (no meaning). The Toga is due to Napoleon. Originally belonged to the Toga a baret. This thing put the lawyer on as he did not agree with the ruling, but that thing is now away because now the lawyer stand up if he do not agree with the ruling.


In most countries, particularly civil law countries, there has been a tradition of giving many legal tasks to a variety of civil law notaries, clerks, and scriveners. These countries do not have “lawyers” in the American sense, insofar as that term refers to a single type of general-purpose legal services rather, their legal professions consist of a large number of different kinds law-trained persons, known as jurists, some of whom are advocates who are licensed to practice in the courts. It is difficult to formulate accurate generalizations that cover all the countries white multiple legal professions, because each country has traditioneel had its own peculiar method of dividing up legal work among all this different types of legal professionals. Notably, England, the mother of the common law jurisdiction, emerged from the Dark Ages with similar complexity in its legal professions, but then evolved by the 19th century to a single dichotomy between barristers and solicitors. An equivalent dichotomy developed between advocates and procurators in some civil law countries; these two types did not always monopolize the practice of law, in that they coexisted with civil law notaries. Several countries that originally had two or more legal professions have since fused or united their professions into a single type of lawyer. Most countries in this category are common law countries, though France, a civil law country, merged its jurists in 1990 and 1991 in response to Anglo-American competition. In countries with fused professions, a lawyer is usually permitted to carry out all or nearly all the responsibilities listed below.
