In many countries, only a properly licensed lawyer may provide legal advice to clients for good consideration, even if no lawsuit is contemplated or is in progress. Therefore, even conveyancers and corporate in-house counsel must first get a license to practice, though they may actually spend very little of their careers in court. Failure to obey such a rule is the crime of unauthorized practice of law.

In other countries, jurists who hold law degrees are allowed to provide legal advice to individuals or to corporations, and it is irrelevant if they lack a license and cannot appear in court. Some countries go further; in England and Wales, there is no general prohibition on the giving of legal advice. Sometimes civil law notaries are allowed to give legal advice, as in Belgium. In many countries, non-jurist accountants may provide what is technically legal advice in tax and accounting matters.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1484053228560{padding-left: 20px !important;}”][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1523976524088{border-top-width: 1px !important;border-right-width: 1px !important;border-bottom-width: 1px !important;border-left-width: 1px !important;border-left-color: #e0e0e0 !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #e0e0e0 !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #e0e0e0 !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #e0e0e0 !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;}”][vc_column_inner css=”.vc_custom_1524032408983{border-top-width: 1px !important;border-right-width: 1px !important;border-bottom-width: 1px !important;border-left-width: 1px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;padding-right: 28px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 32px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”Contact Info” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1523972811913{margin-bottom: 5px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”Get in Touch” font_container=”tag:p|font_size:14|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1534935322673{margin-bottom: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Working as a lawyer involves practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualized problems.[/vc_column_text][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”contacts”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1484058709294{margin-left: 0px !important;border-top-width: 1px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 25px !important;background-color: #fbfbfb !important;border-top-color: #e0e0e0 !important;border-top-style: solid !important;}”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_custom_heading text=”Practice Areas” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1524032568810{margin-bottom: 5px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”Get Qualified Help” font_container=”tag:p|font_size:14|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1524032613106{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 30px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_basic_grid post_type=”project” max_items=”4″ element_width=”3″ gap=”20″ item=”2249″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1535016528836-0460cbdd-1906-3″ exclude=”2726″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
