Lawyer | Black’s Law Dictionary

A lawyer, according to Black’s Law Dictionary, is “a person learned in the law; as an attorney, counsel or solicitor; a person licensed to practice law.”

Law is the system of rules of conduct established by the sovereign government of a society to correct wrongs, maintain stability, and deliver justice.

Working as a lawyer involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualised problems, or to advance the interests of those who retain lawyers to perform legal services.

The role of the lawyer varies significantly across different legal jurisdictions, and the word can signify a solicitor or attorney, or an advocate, counselor or barrister.
