An important element of the criminal justice system, the law is organized according to established rules of conduct. However, the number and complexity of laws mean that skilled professionals are needed to help others navigate through the law and use the criminal justice system for its intended purpose. These skilled professionals are called lawyers.
Lawyers perform many duties in their role as problem solvers and advocates. They may argue cases in a court of law, research and write legal papers, dispense legal advice, write and negotiate contracts, prosecute and defend suspects, and other tasks. In their work, lawyers may also specialize in certain areas, including international, constitutional, criminal, contract, corporate, tort, and property law.
The study of law is an essential requirement for those who would like to work as lawyers, as is passing your state's bar association exam.
