The professionals in law and law enforcement ensure that the legal system protects the rights of individuals and organizations:

  • Those in the legal profession have lengthy educations that require an undergraduate degree and then three years of law school. They must then pass the bar exam in their state to receive a license to practice.
  • Those in law enforcement undergo training periods of several weeks from their employers, typically after graduating from high school. Because they must deal with conflict and confront belligerent individuals, their jobs can be stressful physically and emotionally.

The following indexes Alocsin’s hubs that describe jobs in these fields. They are divided into law and law enforcement categories, and then sorted alphabetically.

Law

Those in law advocate for their clients in court trials, contract negotiations and other legal matters. While many work in private practice, some work for government agencies, actively cooperating with law enforcement officials.

  • Paralegals and Legal Assistants. Assist attorneys and lawyers with legal research and processing court documents but cannot practice law.
  • Lawyers and Attorneys. Negotiates for individuals and organizations who must deal with legal issues or show up in court.
  • Legal Secretaries. Perform administrative tasks and process paperwork for those in the legal field such as attorneys and paralegals.

Law Enforcement

Some of the most hazardous jobs in the country belong to law enforcement officers who must risk life and limb to protect ordinary citizens and prevent property damage.
