Out of a total of 435 U.S. Representatives and 100 Senators (535total in …Congress), lawyers comprise the biggest voting block ofone type, making up 43% of Congress. Sixty percent of the U.S.Senate is lawyers. Enough said. 37.2% of the House of Representatives are lawyers. There are 81 Republican lawyers in Congress who list "lawyer" astheir profession. There are 123 Democrat lawyers in Congress thatlist "lawyer" as their profession. Some may have not told that theyhad a law degree or practiced law, because they were doingsomething else, e.g., doctor, industrialist, teacher, real estateagent/broker, etc. It seems that the medical and real estateprofessions are also heavily represented in Congress.
