Although lawyers in the United States and lawyers in the United States usually work in about the same way, the qualification they have to have in Canada are a little bit different than they are in the United States.
In order to become a lawyer in Canada you have to pass the Canadian Bar Examination of s put on by the Canadian Bar Association or CBA. The bar association in Canada is also known as the Association de Barreau Canadian or AABC due to the fact that many of their residence are French speaking citizens.
The Canadian Voluntary Bar Association was developed and formed in about 1895 and represented about forty thousand lawyers and other law officials.
This bar association was added to the Canadian government by incorporation as an Act of Parliament in 1921. Almost all of the lawyers in Canada are members of this group. They are associated with the International Bar Association.
The point in passing the bar association examination is to make sure that before working in the field the lawyers are tested on whether they learned enough in their schooling to stay within the laws. passing this bar gives them a license that allows them to practice law. WIthout this the degrees they got in school are not enough to make the be a lawyer.
Lawyers are available to citizens that feel like they have been treated unlawfully or have had an unlawful act against them. They can also use a lawyer to represent them when people say that they have been unlawful towards another person. Tax lawyers in general are hired before any unlawful acts happen. Very rarely will a person hire a tax lawyer after they are in trouble. Generally businesses will hire them to make sure that they get their taxes right so they don't get in trouble for being unlawful in the paying of their taxes.
