  • 2. Introduction
    You enter the courtroom at about 8 a.m. for your case. Briefcase filled with papers and contracts and all the information you need. You and your client sit down and discuses a few things before the judge comes. Next thing you know here comes the judge, time for the lawyer to get to work and defend there client or the company and win the case, and after you win you shake hand and walk out the courtroom to all these cameras and reports waiting for you. I first became interested in this career when I was about 13 years old, and ever since then I have been researching this career, it has just made me more interested. In order to get a better understanding of my career I need to research the responsibilities, working conditions, training, job outlook, earnings and related careers.
    The good lawyer is not the man who has an eye to every side and angle of contingency, and qualifies all his qualifications, but who throws himself on your part so heartily, that he can get you out of a scrape. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
