5 Books on Becoming an Attorney

Edit Article |

Posted: Apr 28, 2010 |Comments: 0


Aristotle proclaimed that, The law is reason free of passion, and becoming a lawyer has been the career destination for young people from all walks of life for centuries. It is no accident that most of the major political leaders over the last 300 years had their academic and professional grounding in the law George Washington may have been the first President, however the trend for lawyers to be selected as the nation’s leader is clear John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison (who studied law but never passed the bar) and the list continues.

Becoming a lawyer is rightly viewed as a stepping stone to a successful and wealthy future or as a springboard into many other careers in politics and public service and commerce, both at home and overseas. The practice and application of law permeates every facet of society and no lawyer specialized in all of the law so how do you choose the right path for you?

By Elizabeth Dvorkin

Many are attracted to the practice of law because they see an opportunity to contribute to creating a more fair and just society. The civil rights movement transformed American society, but it was the lawyers who worked in and out of the courts who allowed reforms to go forward.

This book uses most of the enclosed chapters to discuss and explore humanistic issues which are followed by commentaries from numerous lawyers to espouse their views on what it means to be a lawyer in the context of the issues raised by that chapter. This book also covers how taking a humanistic approach in career choice and throughout a lawyers legal education, will improve the reputation of the profession, of individual lawyers and for society as a whole.

The Lure of the Law: Why People Become Lawyers, and What the Profession Does to Them

By Richard Moll

This is written and published in the early 1990’s and is based on the author’s experience as the Dean of Admissions at a leading law school. In some respects it is dated and the commentary is not that of a lawyer himself, but in some respects this helps. People who wish to follow the law as a career do so for a variety of reasons, but how many lawyers actually find they have achieved what they initially set out to do? How many lawyers are actually happy with their career after years building their reputation and achieving their positions? Does the practice of law change you as a person, and if so, is this for the better?

A thought provoking commentary on lawyers and the legal careers which ought to be made required reading before admission to law school.

This is an essential book for those seriously contemplating a career in the courtroom and covers advocacy skills, courtroom situations and tactics, deposition taking skills, the increasing role of courtroom technology and much more.

Getting clients is a complex problem. There’s a ton of competition in your market niche; consumers don’t know how to tell a good lawyer from a bad one; ethical rules appear designed to make all lawyer marketing look the same; and your marketing messages compete with 3,000-5,000 other daily marketing messages. Lawyers should develop a complex marketing system that will set them apart from their competition.

Will being a Maoist prevent me from becoming a lawyer recognized by the bar? I go to NYU the best in the USA?

by Lubbock Democrats

Question by State School dude: Will being a Maoist prevent me from becoming a lawyer recognized by the bar? I go to NYU the best in the USA?
Will being a Maoist prevent me from becoming a lawyer recognized by the bar? I go to NYU the best in the USA?

Now it does say violent and unlawful but during the 1950s the CPUSA’s constitution forbid using unconstitutional means to take power and that didn’t stop McCarthy from throwing them in jail. Even the military allows membership in “totalitarian” organizations as long as no uniform is worn at events. Its 2008 and “liberal” New York prevents Communists, Anarchists, and any revolutionaries from becoming lawyers!

They even use the term “loyalty oath” right out of McCarthy!

18. Have you ever organized or helped to organize or become a member of any organization
or group of persons which, during the period of your membership or association, you knew was
advocating or teaching that the government of the United States or any state or any political
subdivision thereof should be overthrown or overturned by force, violence or any unlawful means?
. If your answer is in the affirmative, state the facts below._________
19. Is there any reason why you cannot take and subscribe to an oath or affirmation that you
will support the Constitutions of the United States and of the State of New York? __________. If
there is, please explain.
20. Can you conscientiously, and do you, affirm that you are without any mental reservation,
loyal to and ready to support the Constitution of the United States? .
21. (a) Have you read the Disciplinary Rules of the Code of Professional Responsibility
adopted by the Appellate Division (see, 22 NYCRR Part 1200)? _________________________…
(b) Will you conscientiously endeavor to conform your professional conduct to them?
Since this is a continuing application, I will submit such additional affidavits, papers
or information as may be requested or as may be necessitated by any change in my situation
up to the date of my appearance before the Appellate Division to be sworn in as an attorney

Best answer:

Answer by ruth
I would think that “the best school in the US” would be able to answer this question for you better than any of us.

I’m pretty sure that if you haven’t taken part in an uprising against the US government, you’re okay.

The ABA is pretty liberal these days.
