A litigator is an attorney specialized in taking disputes to trial. They might also be known by the public vernacular as a “trial lawyer” or “courtroom attorney”. Litigators practice law by representing clients primarily within an antithetical legal proceeding. Litigators are well-versed in the acts of arguing motions, practicing voir dire, and are adept at pleading cases before a judge or a jury. For that reason, litigators are noted as being expressive and confident in public settings. Litigators act in a higher profile capacity compared with attorneys who practice transactional law through the drafting of documents outside the spotlight of a courtroom. Those desiring a career in litigation may have an affinity for the high-octane dynamics of trial work. Those with an interest in litigation must earn a Juris Doctor degree and subsequently pass a written bar exam. Law students with an interest in litigation do best by choosing a law school that offers litigation as a specialization.
