Best Languages For Lawyers To Learn?

The question was posed by Jordan Traver, a legal recruiter at White & Case LLP. The answer is obvious, but it’s not as simple as you might think. To get the most out of the law school experience, students need to develop their vocabulary and know how to express themselves clearly in written form. But this requires extensive study beyond what is required for classes like “Principles of Law or Contracts”—students should be reading casebooks; writing memos; and podcasting about cases that are important to them. Students who aim to become lawyers will also find they need more than just language skills: They must learn how to argue persuasively (and correctly) before juries and judges on behalf of clients whose interests they care about deeply enough that they want those people represented by highly paid attorneys with significant resources behind them! In fact, becoming a lawyer can often be thought of as being an advocate for those who have been wronged or mistreated by government agencies or corporations over whom one has no control. Language ability becomes critical in communicating effectively so one can convince a jury why they must give someone justice instead of another type of punishment—be it monetary fines, jail time or loss of civil rights such as voting rights–depending upon whether they have been convicted in court already for their transgression(s). It seems clear from my own experience learning languages other than English that there are many advantages gained through knowing multiple languages besides having international fluency
