An struggling professional lawyer at Delhi,I love people around me, i enjoy with friends.... u know this is a way to live life.....
“No brilliance is required in law, just common sense and relatively clean fingernails.”
While searching for the perfect quote to begin this explanation of what lawyers really do, I faced the same problem I’m sure a lot of other people must have faced down the ages: people simply do not have nice things to say about lawyers! While jokes, one-liners and snide asides aimed at lawyers abound.
Fortunately, you won’t have to look much further than the quote above. At the most basic level, lawyers apply common sense to everyday and extraordinary situations alike. If you’re smart, think well on your feet, and love proving your point, the law is for you!
Whether it’s an intricate issue of constitutional law that will help preserve our fundamental rights, or a matter involving a simple traffic violation, a lawyer is called upon to resolve conflicts between people through the application of simple, everyday, common sense.
Lawyers do this in various places, and through different means. The most familiar image, of course, if of lawyers screaming their lungs out in courts of law, wearing what looks to some people like a tacky black bathrobe more than anything else! Litigating lawyers, as these lawyers are called, represent their clients in court. Litigating lawyers are called upon to argue various kinds of issues, ranging from property matters to criminal matters, constitutional issues to matters of family law. Black and white and vociferous, these lawyers argue the law to make sure that their clients’ interests are represented in the best possible manner before those that will decide matters of a whole lot of importance to a whole lot of people.
Lawyers are sometimes also referred to as ‘social engineers’. As you would know, our society, the way we live, and what we do everyday, are all loosely bound by a mesh of rules that we call ‘laws’. It is the job of lawyers to understand these rules, and to help people live their lives most meaningfully.
