How many of the founding fathers were lawyers?
There are many different occupations of the framers of the constitution like soldiers, planters, educators, ministers, physicians, financiers, and merchants. But of all of these occupations being a lawyer was the most popular. 35 out of the 55 were lawyers. Many of the framers of the constitution actually did more than one of these jobs. All of the framers were educated in their own ways. Some went to law school, some went to medical school, and some didn't even go to college! They learned all they needed to know from their up bringing. Some had fathers that were very interested in politics and taught them everything they needed to know.

Did the founding fathers intend for our courts to be accessible only to elitists who could afford a lawyer?
No. I think that lawyers services cost less then than they do now. Beyond that, then, as now, there were lawyers who were willing to accept little or no pay, in at least some… cases, so that people who could not afford it could have representation. Michael Montagne It wasn't until recently that the right to legal representation was even expected. Most oftenly, one represented oneself in the court of law, and the prosectutor did the same. Gideon v. Wainwright established that counsel must be provided to all defendants whether the case is a capital crime or not.
not to sure but there were more than 14 of them.. i think it is 55 if not more.
Answer There were 74 delegates/founding fathers at the constitutional convention
There were 55 :)
14 Presidents have been Mason's. Of these were Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison. If you compare the constitution of the United States to the Masonic constitution you will… find some things that are alike. Washington was buried with a Masonic funeral and was past Grand Master and Master of his lodge.
None of the Founding Fathers were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Mormon church was not founded until 1830. However, the Mormon church belie…ves in baptism for the dead. By proxy, they are baptized in the temple for specific people who have passed on and not had a chance to hear the gospel. Mormons believe that in 1877, the spirits of the Founding Fathers appeared to their prophet in the St. George, Utah temple and asked to be baptized. Their baptismal work was done shortly after. (See related link for more information on their baptism.) Members of the LDS Church revere the Founding Fathers. Their work in establishing a free country played a major part in the restoration of the gospel and founding of the Mormon church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to which the misnomer "Mormon" refers, was organized on April 6, 1830. Since the Founding Fathers lived in the late 1700s, none of them were "Mormon" because the religion had not been founded yet. However, Latter-day Saints believe that the Founding Fathers were truly inspired men, who helped to fulfill the Lord's purpose of creating a nation which had the freedom of religion. This made it possible for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be organized in the United States of America. Latter-day Saints also believe that their religion contains the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which had been lost from the earth with the death of the Twelve Apostles, and which had to be restored in its fulness. Latter-day Saints also believe in the work for the dead, which is referenced in the New Testament. This is one purpose for temples in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Temples are places where faithful Latter-day Saints can receive ordinances for themselves, in which they make sacred covenants with God. These ordinances are performed only once per individual, though. This means that when faithful Latter-day Saints return to the temple, they have the opportunity to perform these same ordinances, as proxies, for their deceased ancestors. This gives those who died without the opportunity to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness will have the opportunity to choose, on the other side of the veil, whether or not they want to accept that work. Many of the Founding Fathers have had their temple work done for them, and now Latter-day Saints, or "Mormons," believe those men, who were inspired of God on this life, have had the opportunity to accept or reject that work in the next life.

In The Bible

Many people would have different definitions of what determined the title of Founding Father. When I did extensive research I came up with seven key Founding Fathers that were… instrumental in establishing the United States and were leaders in the early years of the republic. Recently I was gratified to find to credible sources that confirm these seven. The Franklin Mint just came out with a commemorative set of coins on the Founding Fathers...the same seven. Richard B. Morris has written many fine books on the early U.S years. One of them is titled: Seven Who Shaped Our Destiny : The Founding Fathers As Revolutionaries. The seven are: George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. My research shows proof that George Washington was #1and Alexander Hamilton was #2.
