Individuals who are employed by government agencies to make determinations for administrative agencies.

Individuals who apply the law and oversee the legal process in courts according to local, state and federal statutes. Judges preside over cases concerning every aspect of society from traffic offenses, to disputes over the management of professional sports, to issues concerning the rights of huge corporations, to questions about disconnecting life-support equipment connected to terminally ill persons. They listen as lawyers represent the parties present, rule on the admissibility of evidence and the methods of conducting testimony, and may be called upon to settle disputes between opposing lawyers. They ensure that rules and procedures are followed, and if unusual circumstances arise for which standard procedures have not been established, they determine the manner in which the trial will proceed on the basis of their interpretation of the law.
Individuals who represent clients in criminal and civil litigation and other legal proceedings, draw up legal documents and manage or advise clients on legal transactions. They may specialize in a single area such as such as bankruptcy, probate, international or elder law; or may practice broadly in many areas of law. Attorneys serve as both advocates and advisors in society. As advocates, they represent one of the parties in criminal and civil trials by presenting evidence and arguing in court to support their client. As advisors, they counsel their clients concerning their legal rights and obligations and suggest particular courses of action in business and personal matters. Whether acting as advocates or advisors, attorneys research the intent of laws and judicial decisions and apply the law to the specific circumstances faced by their client.
