Tolerance in the Courtroom

Throughout the world, there are many jobs that require tolerance in order to achieve greatness. When this first comes to mind, most people would think of the teaching profession. But, no one ever stops to think about the job of a lawyer. Lawyers need and display tolerance throughout the everyday work place. Whether they are presenting themselves in a courtrrom, or simply just at their desk reviewing a case, tolerance is highly needed.

Lawyers must be tolerant of more than what others may see. In order to bes tthe best they can be, lawyers must be tolerant of;

  • The client’s view/belief
  • The client’s actions
  • Society

The most crucial aspect that is mentioned on the list above is that lawyers must be tolerant of “Society’. At all times, the lawyer is being jusdge by their own personal client as well as the decisions and actions that they take in order to win a case. Especially with all of today’s new rules and regulations that are being presented, it is very easy that society may see a lawyer as breaking a law or simply going against what is considered “right”. The field of law is a major field under the eyes of society. In cases, people are worried as to what may seem wrong or right and what they are capable of doing that will make themselves seem like a better person.

We may not see it, but lawyers are showing tolerance everyday. In an actual courtroom setting, a lawyer must be tolerant of the judge, the plainttiff, the defendant, and all that they have to say. Even though it is a constant battle, every member of a specific case must be willing to hear what others have to say and take that into consideration when attempting to support themselves. Although everyone is trying to go against each other, fellow lawyers and judges are able to come to their ending conclusion based off of what someone may have stated before them. Lawyers are always working together and this would not be possible without the practice of tolerance.

  1. Your observations are really good! A judge is the only one who does not have to
    tolerate anything, yet the judge also has to be the MOST tolerant in court.
    You wrote, ” Although everyone is trying to go against each other, fellow lawyers and judges are able to come to their ending conclusion based off of what someone may have stated before them.” Can you think of a more consise way of stating this?
