Fields of Law

While there are several fields of law, ranging from maritime law to intellectual property law, the most three common fields (or types) of law are criminal law, personal injury law, and real estate law. (Note: The following definition definitions are provided by Brown University

1.) Criminal Law: Criminal law focuses on behaviors that are sanctioned under criminal code and defined as illegal. Prosecutors and District Attorneys sanction illegal behavior, while                                    criminal defense lawyers represent clients accused of criminal activity. Both prosecution and defense professionals deal with issues of individual liberty, basic                                              rights, and responsibilities.

2.) Personal Injury Law: Personal injury law deals with intentional or unintentional wrongdoing that affects individuals physically or psychologically. Experts in the field are well-                                            versed in torts law and may work on cases involving medical malpractice, accidental collisions, product liability, wrongful death, or workplace injury. Many cases                                              are settled out of court in this field of legal practice. For example, The Washington Advocates are a personal injury law firm in Seattle, Washington. Check out their website                            for more information on how a law firm operates and what they have to offer their clients.

3.) Real Estate Law: Real Estate law involves land or construction ownership, development, litigation, tenant rights, or landlord disputes. Attorneys in this field may work on                                                    residential or commercial transactions, review contracts, or work in planning and other government offices.
