英会話ブログ その631     Land of Lawyers (3)

2015/04/04

A famous example is the lady who was burned by a cup of coffee at McDonald's and won big money from a journey in a trial.  ( She claimed she didn't know the coffee was hot ! )

Criminal defense attorneys too have a bad image, because they are seen to help criminals esape justice just so the lawyer can win the case and get money.  A famous exapmle of this is the OJ Simpson trial...

There are not only TV dramas about lawyers but also court TV, a cable TV network which allows viewers to see real court cases by way of the cameras which are often present in American courts.

Young people who wish to become a lawyer have to study "pre-law" in university, then attend actual law school, and then pass the bar exam, after which they can become a licensed attorney...

A lot of work for a career with such a negative image !                               (G.K)
