Career Prospects

Lawyers, also called attorneys, act as both advocates and advisors in our society. The more detailed aspect of a lawyer’s job depends upon one's field of specialization and position:

 

Client representation As advocates, they represent one of the parties in criminal and civil trials by presenting evidence and arguing in court to support their client. As advisors, lawyers counsel their clients about their legal rights and obligations and suggest particular course of action in business and personal matters.

 

Backend preparation before trial Although all lawyers are licensed to represent parties in court, some appear in court more frequently than others. Trial lawyers spend the majority of their time outside the courtroom, conducting research, interviewing clients and witnesses, and handling other details in preparation for a trial.
