In the job market – Lawyer

Do you want to combat environmental crimes, as well as any other kind of felony or transgression, and make things right? Then you can become a lawyer.

Lawyers (also known as attorneys) work to make everybody – people, companies, and the government – abide by laws, rules and regulations. In order to do this, lawyers study laws and use these laws to prevent their clients from being harmed in any way – physically, morally or financially.

These professionals write legal documents, represent their clients in criminal and civil trials, advise them about their legal rights and obligations, and lead civil and criminal lawsuits. They also settle labor disputes, instruct corporate clients during business transactions, litigate divorces, prepare wills and business contracts, among many other responsabilities.

There are many law fields to choose from when you become a lawyer, including environmental, international, criminal, labor, family, intellectual property and information technology.

Lawyers can work in corporations, law firms, insurance companies, banks, non-profit organizations, or they can be self-employed and have their own offices. They can also work for the government as judges, public defenders, prosecutors, magistrates, and so on.

Law school is five-years long and apprenticeship is mandatory. After graduating from college, you must pass the written examination of the Brazilian Bar Association (OAB), otherwise you won’t be allowed to legally practice law.

This is a popular job and difficult too! I have sOme friends that began STUDYING LAW in the college. They TOLD me that IT is hard but A very good COURSE.

Please correct any english error. (DONE!) :-)

I think it’s a really hard job but very greeeat! (U$)

Concordo com a Ana é um trabalho cansativo , difícil mas muito,muito lucrativo!

Sempre admirei a advocacia mas nunca pensei em me tornar um advogado , mas é uma boa possibilidade de futura profissão

Para uma pessoa ser advogada, na minha opinião, ela tem que ter um alto poder de cenvencer os outros, saber defender o que fala e gostar muito de estudar. Eu tenho uma prima que está se formando em advocacia, e ela lê vários livros, um mais grosso que o outro, mas ela ama essa profissão.

Nossa, achei bem legal, principalmente por conhecer pessoas que fazem/fizeram direito :)
Como toda profissão acaba se tornando complexa, pois tudo o que aprendemos deve ser usado de uma foma que não seja prejudicial. Nesse caso, para combater crimes, e não para estar ao seu lado tendo como cliente alguém que quebra as leis.

I have a friend who is crazy ABOUT StudyING Law. She is starting TO study somethings.For me IT is a great job,there is so much responsabity,it’s hard to study but I think IT’S A very good job

hmm.

Advocacia é uma linda profissão ! Já tive vontade de me tornar uma advogada. Porém, é um trabalho de alta importância e muita responsabilidade. Mas que gera lucros e acredito que seja prazeroso, defender alguém.
