Litigation is a legal method of settling disputes in court. Most of the disputes revolve around criminal cases, in which businesses or two citizens argue against one another. The process of litigation typically starts the moment a person decide to defend or enforce his or her rights in a legal manner. The parties involve must always be accompanied by an attorney. In this particular situation, the attorney is referred as a litigator. Therefore, an individual who aspires to be a litigator has the option of specializing in issues that relate to personal injuries, contracts, or real estate.
A litigator can also work as a legal assistant or paralegal. Therefore, the career requirement for a litigator is the completion of the Bachelor Degree in Law, earning the Juris Doctor Degree, passing the bar exam, and gaining some job experience. However, experience requirement varies from one employer to the other. Some law firms even employ litigators that have zero years of experience while others prefer the ones that have five years of experience. Essential skills to becoming a good litigator include excellent written and verbal communication, legal research, critical thinking, responsibility, organization, and attention to details.
