Get me a Lawyer

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, July 28, 2009

On Saturday, July 28th and 29th, law school graduates who are seeking to be admitted to the Maryland State Bar will be at the Baltimore Convention Center taking a grueling two day test of a little less than 12 total hours designed to demonstrate their understanding of the law and its procedures.


Most of these students will have spent at least 7 years of their college life preparing for this moment: 4 years of undergraduate study and 3 years of law school.

In a time when people are seeking quick fixes and the easy way, persons interested in pursuing a legal career have to demonstrate a capacity to analyze, interpret, make decisions, write, and read far beyond what is required for many people. That's good to know that the legal professional you may need one day has met a standard that has been set very high. During their practise they are required to take continuing educational credits to insure that their legal skills are enhanced and not diminished.

If you where to view the applicants you would be proud to discover that many minorities are represented and that the audience is as diverse as America.

We need a percentage of our population to be knowledgeable and expert in legal matters. Far too few lawyers are available to communities that are the most vulnerable to the violation of their basic rights.

I believe that every student of public education should complete a course of study prior to graduation from High School that introduces them to basic legal concepts and The U.S. Constitution to enable them to function as a full legally knowledgeable citizen in American life.

My best wishes to all of the applicants for the Maryland State Bar examination.
