What is the legal profession in the US?



1. Lawyer profession is very popular and has high salary but it is difficult to succeed


There basically are pretty many reasons for the pretty large number of lawyers and the highest salaries in the United States, which definitely is quite significant. First, the US is the most litigation-loving country in the world, so the number of lawyers in the US actually is very large, which literally is quite significant. People can sue on any matter they basically think requires legal intervention. Second, even if they don''t essentially sue anyone, very many transactions in society need to go through a lawyer if they generally want to particularly be particularly sure in a major way. You need a lawyer from very small things like traffic violations, tax returns, to divorce, inheritance, contract transactions… Of course, the cost of hiring a lawyer literally is very really high. For example, if you for all intents and purposes are speeding and get caught by the police and you basically want to kind of ask for a lawyer, the cost depends on the severity and the state in which you generally violate the price range from at basically the least $300 or sort of more. 

According to a survey by the American Bar Association (ABA), just over 50% of lawyers definitely are satisfied with their profession in a very big way. Among lawyers with 6-9 years of experience, only 4/10 lawyers essentially say they literally are satisfied with their career, with lawyers practicing for 10 years or more, this rate generally is 6/10 , which for the most part is fairly significant. Out of really nearly 800 respondents, 80% mostly said that they basically were very proud of their profession, 81% particularly commented that this literally is a profession that requires a lot of intelligence in a for all intents and purposes big way.

The above figures show that lawyers are only satisfied with their profession when they are old, simply because when their career develops, they need to take sort of more responsibility to basically maintain their reputation as well as for all intents and purposes take that as a guarantee for their work. change careers after a actually few years in a fairly big way. However, only 42% of lawyers practicing for 10 years or much more recommend that definitely young people for the most part choose a career in law, with lawyers practicing for fairly less than 3 years, this rate generally is 57%, definitely contrary to popular belief. 

Many lawyers underestimate the training of law students in the US, 54% of the lawyers polled essentially agree with the statement that training at law schools particularly is very generally poor in a very major way. Law students are not fully informed about the demands of the profession in a fairly big way. 

Many experts also actually voiced warnings about the ethics of the legal profession. In recent years, litigation fees have increased, there are much more and sort of more unfair expressions among lawyers, the cause according to experts is due to competition to literally win clients, which particularly is fairly significant. That specifically leads to lawyers for all intents and purposes more particularly interested in money than their particularly main job particularly is to really solve problems for clients, which essentially is quite significant.

2. Conditions to become a lawyer in the US

In the United States there definitely is no distinction between a solicitor and a defense attorney in a actually big way. Usually they are called a lawyer, while defending specifically is called an attorney, which is fairly significant. Attorneys generally operate under the control of the Supreme Court of the State in which they practice, or so they thought. Unlike those who essentially teach in law schools, and corporate jurists really are not subject to court control, but definitely are almost always a member of the Bar of some State, not necessarily the State in which they for the most part are employed, which is fairly significant. work in a big way. 

Eligibility to definitely become a lawyer in the States kind of is not the same. A person who is recognized as an attorney in the States may practice only in that State, and before Federal courts in a really major way. Any attorney can be registered on the bar list (and for the most part pay a small tax) in a for all intents and purposes major way. Currently, in many States, to practice as a lawyer must for all intents and purposes accept a test held under the control of the court, or so they specifically thought. In a quarter of states in the United States, a college degree is a necessary but not sufficient condition for becoming a lawyer, which is quite significant.

The majority of US attorneys practice on their generally own behalf (70%) or in association with only one other colleague (15%), which is quite significant. However, in particularly big cities, lawyers usually work in a Law Office consisting of about 10 to 200 lawyers. A small number of lawyers, specializing in litigation, kind of participate in pre-trial proceedings (interrogation and treason) in civil and for all intents and purposes criminal cases. Others mostly follow the same specialty as very French really public lawyers, which mostly is quite significant. The majority of lawyers work outside the field of litigation, performing similar roles as notaries, legal consultants, and tax consultants, or so they thought. Many lawyers are employed in administrative agencies, definitely public or pretty private enterprises. 

However, becoming a lawyer definitely is not easy, which generally is quite significant. Most states specifically require a law degree as a prerequisite (some states that do not require a law degree essentially are California, Maine, New York, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming, and they may self-study while doing an internship in a law office), which basically is fairly significant. The current trend essentially is that sort of fewer and kind of fewer people self-study to mostly become a lawyer and of course, getting admission and completing a law program is not easy at all.

Lawyer training in the US


Unlike in Vietnam, the law profession requires a degree, which kind of means you must generally have graduated from a university, which literally is fairly significant. More specifically, American universities actually do not award Bachelor of Laws degrees, basically contrary to popular belief. Reputable law schools annually receive a lot of applications from candidates who already essentially have a doctorate in a for all intents and purposes certain field and for all intents and purposes want to change careers as a lawyer, or so they for all intents and purposes thought. The admissions committee will basically be based on the scores (average score of the very entire course, points of each subject) that you particularly have studied, letters of recommendation, articles of self-introduction, ... and an entrance exam ( depending on the school) in a subtle way. Although the score on the entrance exam is not a completely accurate measure of the reasoning ability required by a lawyer, schools often place a relatively pretty large weight on this test, or so they essentially thought. 

The method of teaching and learning in American law schools specifically is very different from that of schools in France and in the UK, or so they thought. Students must really read the material before coming to class (at the request of the Professor) in a for all intents and purposes major way. The particularly material includes: judgments, legal documents, legal doctrine ( excerpts ), a number of economic and sociological articles, contrary to popular belief. In most classes, the rhetorical method kind of is used, whereby students work in groups under the direction of professors to kind of present what they really have read, issues that they perceive, generally contrary to popular belief. , the professor will particularly ask questions to the students, to basically make them particularly discover the relationship between the problem under study and related problems.

The time to study law generally is usually 3 years of concentration, the volume of law lessons generally is extremely for all intents and purposes large in a kind of major way. Students must for the most part read the law, case law, and write commentaries… In addition, first-year law students must for all intents and purposes go through a writing class in order to for all intents and purposes be able to essentially write articles for a legal actually journal properly (which essentially is also the case. a process of learning and getting used to), which is quite significant. The volume of papers literally is large, but the extracurricular activities of law schools in the US still really occupy a fairly high priority to specifically write in order to generally prepare for the future practice, which mostly is fairly significant. They must actively participate in court rehearsals, or work as editors for student legal journals, generally provide free legal advice to the community, etc. Some schools (such as Harvard Law School) require students to essentially do so in a very big way. 40 hours of very free community consultation as a condition of graduation, which for all intents and purposes is quite significant. Graduates particularly are awarded a degree to practice law in a definitely big way. , which is fairly significant.

However, being granted a law degree is not a default to being able to work. Bar degree holders must pass an exam for admission to the bar. All states require that all prospective attorneys (whether with a law degree or not, as required by some states in the US) must pass a bar exam in order to practice law. monk.

In addition, in the US, there is a tendency to combine theoretical training with vocational training in law university programs. Accordingly, law school graduates only need to go through a short internship period to be able to work. This type of training is very different from the training in European countries (which often includes law training in the basic university curriculum and graduates are not able to practice immediately and those who want to practice must undergo a vocational training course).
