About Attorney

August 17th, 2017

Attorneys are highly skilled professionals who are fully conversant with a specific area of the law. Attorneys provide legal advice to individuals, businesses or government agencies and represent them in legal proceedings. They draft and review legal documents that are to be signed by their clients, interpret laws, rulings and regulations, offer advice regarding business transactions or legal rights and summarize and present cases to judges and juries in court.

Becoming an attorney requires a considerable amount of education. You must first complete three years of undergrad study in any field and then enroll in another 3 year program in law school. After graduating from law school you must pass the bar exam to be licensed in the state you wish to practice in. Attorneys must have outstanding communication and negotiation skills. They must be able to present the facts of the case clearly and make convincing opening and closing arguments.

Prospective employers will ask you various questions to gauge your interest in this role and your knowledge of the law. Do you have strong research and analytical skills? At an interview for an attorney job, you must be prepared to convince the interviewer that you are the right person for the job. Practicing what you are going to say and how you are going to say it is important if you want to impress your interview.
