What Makes Being a Trial Lawyer So Fulfilling?
If you are attending California Desert Trial Academy College of Law, you have made the choice to pursue a career as a trial attorney. In choosing to become a lawyer, you may have been following your dreams to work with others, along with pursuing a special interest to see justice served. No matter what type of law you practice, chances are it will be intellectually stimulating, and you will continue to learn every day. This begins in law school where you are continually absorbing information about the law that you will apply later, daily.
As a trial lawyer using your talent in real applications, your life may be extremely fast paced (especially if you work in a large firm). While most cases do settle, try to take on as many as you can that are going to court so you can get the practice, which undoubtedly will prove to be invaluable. Here, you will learn not only about strengthening your interpersonal skills, but also what it means to help people—and be their savior when you win! This gives you the chance, also, to make a name and set yourself apart from other attorneys. Once you become experienced in court and skilled at handling the tough cases, your credibility will begin to flourish, and referrals will begin to flow in from the most likely—and unlikely—sources.
Although law school prepares you with the knowledge to go forth, once you are in the real world acting as an attorney, you will begin mastering true public speaking skills, and all that analytical thinking that was taught and reinforced previously while you were a student will be put to good use. The more you go to court, the more confident you will become—and the more you will be able to help others. As a trial attorney, you may work on either civil or criminal cases. Your job will include brushing shoulders with different members of the legal system in your town or city, along with members of the community—and sometimes those engaged in legal government. As you continue in your duties, you will be in the trenches dealing with and interviewing witnesses for cases that may or may not go to trial, performing many hours of research—and meeting with countless other legal professionals, jurors, judges, and more.
