Number of Lawyers in the US According to the American Bar Association, there were 1,128,729 resident and active attorneys in the United States in 2006 and 1,143,358 in 2…007. A small percentage of the increase (actual number 352) is due to American Somoa and Guam being added to the survey in 2007. The number of resident and active attorneys in each state is available at the link provided below.
25 of the 43 presidents, including the current President Obama, were members of the bar and qualified to practice as lawyers. Some of them, such as Jefferson, John Quincy Adam…s and Woodrow Wilson, had a very limited practice. (Obama is known as the 44th President, but only 43 people have been President. Cleveland is counted twice, as both the 22nd and 24 presidents.)
Typically the statue on collections runs out after 7 years. Which is the same amount of time it would take for a bankruptcy to clear from your credit record. So if you c…an handle the harassments and wage garnishings for 7 years go for it.
Answer All 112 past and present Supreme Court Justices have held law degrees or have been admitted to the bar at some point before being appointed the bench. Those who served… in the early days of the Court would have been said to "read law" under the tutelage of another lawyer before being admitted to the local bar so may not have held a law degree, because there were few law schools back then, and it was not necessary to hold a degree in order to be admitted to the bar. Not all supreme court justices had been judges, though. Notable examples are John Marshall, William Rehnquist, and Earl Warren. Answer Although not required by the Constitution, all 112 members of the US Supreme Court have been lawyers, although not all attended or graduated law school. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the United States had few law schools, so a person who wanted to become a lawyer would read about the law and then apprentice under a practicing attorney. Levi Woodbury (1845-1851) was the first justice to graduate law school (Litchfield Law School, now defunct). Stanley Forman Reed (1938-1957) was the last justice to serve without a law degree. Today, candidates for the US Supreme Court are usually chosen from among those who attended the nation's top law schools, such as Harvard and Yale. For more information, see Related Questions, below.
The technical answer is no, there are no Constitutional or legislative qualifications for US Supreme Court justices. All 112 past and present Supreme Court justices have bee…n lawyers, although those who served in the early days of the Court learned the law by reading and apprenticing with more experienced attorneys because there were few law schools back then. There have been some lawyers who were never judges appointed, most famously, Earl Warren. Eisenhower appointed him to the Supreme Court in 1953 to thank him for his support in CA during the Republican primaries. Warren was an ex-state Attorney General and an extremely popular governor of CA, but he had never been a judge. He went on to become one of the most active Chief Justices ever, greatly expanding legal protections, especially for minorities (e.g. Brown v. Board of Education, 1954) and criminal defendants (Miranda v. Arizona, 1966).
Yes. Although this is not a Constitutional or statutory requirement, Supreme Court justices need a solid understanding of the law to operate effectively. Not all justices atte…nded law school, however. In the 18th- and 19th-centuries, many lawyers studied and apprenticed under a more experienced attorney and were admitted to the bar without benefit of a degree. Today, most Supreme Court candidates have Ivy League law degrees.
The US Supreme Court justices question the attorneys representing the parties to a case during oral arguments. Each attorney has 30 minutes to present his or her reason the ju…stices should find in favor of his client, as well as clarify points and answer any questions the justices raise. The justices are usually better prepared and know more about the case, precedents and applicable law than the attorneys, and often grill them. Oral arguments occur after all parties have submitted their briefs and the justices read the briefs and relevant case law, but before they vote on the case.

In 1197 there were approx 52"00 lawyers in the DOJ -
Both companies apparently were able to produce a convincing argument that the merger would not be harmful to the industry - cause a monopoly - or be a 'combination in restrain…t of trade.'
To be honest, most lawyers use technology. The definition of technology is "Machinery and equipment developed from such scientific knowledge." So therefore a cellular phone is… technology. But in other terms, some lawyers such as myself use Microsoft Office to type up speeches, documents, etc., so yes i'd say most lawyers use technology.
