A lawyer is an individual, licensed person by the state to engage in the practice of law and advice clients on legal matters. Lawyers are held in high esteem in our society. Lawyers are eligible to work as both advocates and advisors on behalf of their clients. As advocates, they represent either the claimant or the defendant. They represent one of the parties in criminal or civil trails. As advisors, lawyers counsel clients on how the fact of the particular case applies to the law.
There are different aspects to a lawyer’s work depending on which field they specialize in. Today, career in legal education opens up many new career opportunities.
