A litigation attorney plays a key role in the U.S. judicial system. A skilled, experienced litigation lawyer can make the difference between success and failure in a lawsuit.
Many litigators actually set their sites on being involved in the legal profession as litigation attorneys while they are still in law school. When that occurs, these law students focus on courses that include civil procedure and trial tactics and strategies.
Upon graduating from law school, a new attorney interested in becoming a litigator is likely to seek out a position of employment that provides a good amount of hands-on trial experience. The heart of being a litigator is courtroom work.
Because of this early objective, a young attorney will elect to take work outside of the civil arena. Many individuals who desire to become litigation attorneys will join the staff of prosecutor’s offices. By taking this route, they are assured of spending a good amount of time in courtrooms.
