In any country, legal profession plays an important role.
The legal profession in England and Wales is divided into two branches: barristers and solicitors. Barristers and solicitors perform distinct duties, though they overlap some aspects a The main functions of solicitors are: give general advice to their clients, prepare cases and evidence. They deal with crimes and some matrimonial matters in Magistrates’ court. In civil cases actions solicitors can speak in the County courts. The Law Society is a professional organization of solicitors. Barristers are experts in the interpretation of law; they conduct cases in higher courts; they draft pleadings and other documents needed to support a case; also, they prepare oral evidence and arguments which have much important in courts. In all but the lowest civil and criminal court barristers have an exclusive right of audience. With minor exceptions, a barrister can act only on the instructions of a solicitor, to whom a lay client must go in the first instance. All barristers belong to institutions called Inns of Court, which are ancient organizations rather like exclusive clubs.
Any Law Faculty must provide broad training. Students of law must be taught to analyze complex factual situations, to reason deductively, to separate the relevant from the irrelevant to handle the most difficult problems. The specific objective of the curriculum is to maximize the student’s mastery of legal reasoning and legal method – in addition to teaching the basic substantive rules of the law. The graduates of any Law Faculty work in courts and prosecuting offices, in state organizations and private firms as legal advisers and notaries, counsels and specialists in advocacy, etc.
I am proud of studying in our Law Faculty.
Of all the professions I would prefer to work as a lawyer. This profession itself is extremely practical and extremely relations problems. Problems and the process of their solving and overcoming them make us perfect. The best method of solving the most difficult problems is to notice and analyze the smallest details even if they seem unimportant. So the main motto and principle of work of a good lawyer should be to observe properly and make a correct conclusion. So a good lawyer is a penetrating man with a sharp eye. He is able to set free his mind from the weight of unnecessary trifles in order to detect a criminal and solve crime. According to all job tests lawyers top all charts and go with editors, advertising managers and research analysts.
I know that it’s very difficult to become a good lawyer. You should know perfectly well low, you must be well – educated and well – informed. You need a profound knowledge in the chosen field. Besides a lawyer should be noble in work and life, kind and attentive to people, responsible and reasonable, honest and prudent.
A lawyer who is selfish and dishonest can’t be good at his profession. I try to do my best to develop good traits in myself, keen wit and get all round education.
Being a lawyer one can chose one’s future occupation from a number of possible ones. One can work as a lawyer at one of law offices. So I can work either at the Court or at the Procurators Office or at the Bar or at the Notary Office. I can choose such place of work as an enterprise or state arbitration. I may also serve in the militia agencies. There is much work to do everywhere a barrister at the Bar should defend the accused – prove his innocence by evidence (and this is the job I have chosen as my future specialty) but who knows the future?
Then a prosecutor and a prosecutors assistant at the Prosecutor’s Office should supervise the correct application and observance of the law. They should also prosecute the accused (prove his guilt by evidence); a judge at the law court (people’s court should administrate justice – conduct a trial sum up evidence, pass the just sentence); a notary at the Notary Office should perform notary actions; a legal adviser give legal advice and legal help; a state arbitrator should settle questions between enterprises, and last but not lest – an investigator should investigate and solve crimes.
Soon I shall be able to join this great well, I should remember that all of us must administer justice properly and observe legality and human rights. A lawyer can be even at the head of the state, and the best example is our President Putin.
