For anyone who wonders what a litigator does and what kind of training and education the profession require, the answers to those questions are relatively simple, at least on paper. A litigator is an attorney who works specifically to see that a case is brought to court and given its due trial. Moreover, they oversee every aspect of the cases they bring to court, from start to finish. One way to envision a litigator is as a champion for their clients. Sometimes, these clients are plaintiffs, and in other circumstances they are defendants.
The details of what a litigator does, on any given case, vary from each circumstance to the next. Of course, there are basic duties that are to be performed from investigation to advocacy, and at times these task require a team of professionals from private investigators to medical doctors. However, there is a singular task that any and every litigator must perform. They must put the wishes and welfare of their clients first no matter how they may personally feel about how a trial is going.
The education and training required to be an attorney is not the most grueling. That is not say it is a cake walk either. By no means, does anyone just get a degree in law, and in most cases it definitely is not a “plan b” story. It requires a Bachelors from an accredited institution of higher learning, for starters. After that, it is off to take the LSAT (Law School Admission Test) as a requirement of most law schools. Once that job is done, it is just another three years of law school. And even after graduation, there is this little thing called the Bar Examination. Without passing that exam, you may not be licensed to formally practice law.
