    Career Project. J. Hall Pd. 6 Lawyer The career I have chosen is to become a lawyer, in either a private practice or firm, or for the government.

    The effects of isolation of characters in the Melville and Hawthorne stories are relatively the same. Bartleby, Beatrice, the lawyer, Parson Hooper, and Hester to name a few.

  • Verbal Language Lawyers Lawyer Second
    495 words
    Anyone who works in the legal business knows that communication is both verbal and non-verbal and we also know that the verbal element-that is, the spoken word taken alone-is an extremely unreliable story-teller. This is why all lawyers should know how to interpret a second language. The second language I'm going to talk about is the non-verbal language. First, the non-verbal language creates better communication skills, needed by a lawyer. Second, the non-verbal language would greatly benefit i...

It seems perfectly obvious that the Lawyer goes out of his way to be sensit...

    Philosophy 324 Case 9 Is a good lawyer just considered good if they keep their confidences with their clients and win their cases? Or is their more to a good lawyer? I think there should be much more. Lawyers should be obligated to doing the morally right action even if it means losing the case. This is what the moral agent concept suggests. Considering this concept, we may no longer believe that a good lawyer is simply an effective legal advocate. Rather, a good attorney should be effective mor...
