Be a Lawyer

Lawyers are generally classified as being a civil lawyer or criminal lawyer. A criminal Lawyer would either prosecute or defend the one accused of breaking the law, while the civil Lawyer acts for his client in matters of disputes, contracts, property damage, defamation of character, libel, negligence, wills and estate, etc. Sometimes, lawyers may specialize within a field, e.g. intellectual property and copyrights, or arbitration, corporate law, conveyancing or family terms such as an attorney, barrister, advocate and solicitor. Lawyers are known by different names such as an attorney, a barrister, solicitor or advocate. In the uS and the Uk there is some distinction between these terms but in Malaysia, lawyers are also advocates as much as they are attorneys; the main difference being only whether some appear in court to argue cases while others do not.

Overview

Profile of a Lawyer

Are you seduced by the high drama of the courtroom that you see in movies or on television? It is a mistake to think that some witty lines or a clever word is enough to win your case. In real life a lot of strategic planning, thinking and hard work happen before the court battle begins. A lot of legal work is also happens away from the court, as in corporate deals, boardroom struggles, issues related to shares and investment, mundane agreements for sale and purchase of property and companies, etc. As a lawyer you must have great interpersonal skills to interact with clients from a large cross section of society.

Qualifications

A degree in Law from any of the universities or Temples or Inns (UK) recognized by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board Malaysia.
