Lawyer and how to become one

Lawyers typically do lawyers do the following: 1. Advise and represent clients in courts, before government agencies, and in legal matters
2. Communicate with their clients, colleagues, judges and others involved in the case
3. Conduct research and analysis of legal problems
4. Interpret laws, rulings, and regulations for individuals and businesses
5. Present facts in writing and verbally to their clients or others and argue on behalf of their clients
6. Prepare and file legal documents, such as lawsuits, appeals, wills, contracts, and deeds
7. Lawyers, also called attorneys, act as both advocates and advisors.

Education- Becoming a lawyer usually takes 7 years of full-time study after high school—4 years of undergraduate study, followed by 3 years of law school. (Becoming a lawyer takes about 7 years of training.)

WORK ENVIRONMENT- Lawyers work mostly in offices. However, some travel to attend meetings with clients at various locations, such as homes, hospitals, or prisons. Others travel to appear before courts.

Ca$h- The median annual wage for lawyers was $115,820 in May 2015. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $55,870, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $187,200.

ISSUES: A lawyer can have many problems. one of which is if you should defend your client even though you know they are guilty. a major decision has to be made whether or not you want to defend someone you know is responsible for the case. This is caused from lawyers who are only in it for the clients money, and this is solved by the decision of whether or not to defend this guilty client. This can affect the way people view you.
