The legal profession

A lawyer is involved with people, with their cultural, social, political, and economic institutions, and above all with their hopes and dreams. As an advocate, negotiator, adviser, mediator, and public citizen, a lawyer has the responsibility to preserve the rights of individuals and to secure justice in a democratic republic.

Law in the United States reflects the dynamics of power, and thus of conflict, within American society. In order to resolve conflict and to promote orderly change, lawyers call upon many fields of learning in the humanities, arts, social sciences, and natural sciences. They need skill in analysis, breadth of vision, and commitment to justice, for the law is a humanistic pursuit based on the purposes and principles of the civilization it serves.

If you are interested in a career that requires precision in thinking, research, and writing, and you want to be involved with people and their social, political, cultural, and economic aspirations, you should consider becoming an attorney.
