Studying or practicing law is not so easy we some people think. You have to be versatile and hard working students for life to be good knowledgeable lawyers. Sometimes, you could be frustrated because of huge pressures of study. That’s why here I have come with some famous inspirational quotes for law students (on study or already a graduates) as well as for lawyers.

The world we live in is not a safe place. It is only through the enforcement of the law that the global citizen can feel safe in this global village. Many a time, rights of the citizens are violated, their security is compromised, and their right to dignity is ignored. In these cases, it is best for them to turn to the judicial system and seek justice. Sometimes, a citizen is wrongfully accused of engaging in criminal activities; the court has to find a way to defend the innocent. In this respect, attorneys are called to the courts of law to protect the guilty and the innocent, and sometimes, prosecute them.

William Fichtner, portraying the character of Alexander Mahone in the series Prison Break, once said; ”Rules are rules remember? If we don’t have them, we are savages.” Mahone uttered these words when he was incarcerated in a foreign prison. Even though he was considered a criminal and punished by the law, he needed the same law to protect him. The only reason why humans have become more civil towards each other is that of the law that defends the weak and restrains the mighty and powerful. Otherwise, the world would be a jungle. Only the brave and vigorous would have survived.

To enforce laws and maintain a just society, the judicial system has become an important part of our lives. Every year, universities across the world enroll thousands of law students to act as custodians of the law. They are the people who know the constitution. They are so eloquent in their speech and behavior that they can help a person get away with murder. Even though we have been taught that crime does not pay, the lawyers and attorneys know otherwise. Without crime, law business goes bankrupt.

All disputes and criminal charges are mostly settled in court, though some attorneys and other concerned parties may prefer out of court settlements. Attorneys are highly successful people associated with fame and power. It is due to their high earnings and their knowledge. It goes without saying that in this world of criminals, having the ability to defend them or keep them out of prisons is priceless. It is where the sweetness of being an attorney comes in.

Here are some inspirational quotes for law students who are currently studying law and also for lawyers.

Some More Quotes For Lawyers


  •  The good lawyer is the great salesman. -Janet Reno
  • A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns. -Mario Puzo

To many people, attorneys, are just ordinary people whom they have no use of until and they have a legal claim, dispute or are required to appear in court. In this case, one needs a representative well versed in the law and having the experience and charisma to sway circumstances and situations in their favor. It is the reason why attorneys are quick thinkers whose primary task is to convince people otherwise. Although a court is a place where justice is served, it is also a place where words and wit are important. Good attorneys have kept criminals on the sunny side of prisons. As the current crop of law students are on their way to graduation and law practice, the constitution is theirs to defend and uphold. The courts are waiting for them. The guilty and the innocent can’t wait to pay for their services. They are not just attorneys; they are the protectors and defenders of the law.
