A litigator is a lawyer who focuses their efforts on legal conflicts that work their way to the court room. The majority of these litigators are members of law firms, various government agencies, and private clients. Their job can be very stressful, and extremely intense, as is the education they are required to obtain beforehand. The requirements for becoming a lawyer do not vary much from state to state, and are pretty straight forward, and strict.
As an attorney, their experience of wins and losses is public knowledge, just like any proven case of negligence. This ensures that all attorneys follow the standard practices and expectations set forth by the state for competent representation.
What Kind of Education Does a Litigator Typically Have?
Litigation lawyers must graduate with the minimum of an undergraduate degree, followed by much more rigorous education. They are required to pass the Law School Administration Test and obtain a doctorates’ degree in “Juris Doctor,” and are required to pass their state’s bar examination. While every law firm has their own experience requirements for practicing at their law firm, the experience requirements can extend up to a five-year limit.
