What do we think of when we think of a lawyer? The public’s general idea, that we see when we visualize a lawyer, is a litigation lawyer. Litigators are the lawyers that do the magic in the courtroom. They are the men and women that do the arguing and speaking in front of judges and juries. A litigator must be fearless and be able to articulate their thoughts and arguments flawlessly if they want to be successful and are the ones that head all aspects of representing their clients in cases.
Most lawyers are civil litigators. After earning their bachelors degree, litigators can then take the law school admissions test(LSAT). After completing three years of law school, then the student can take the bar and ethics exam to achieve their license to practice law.
