Litigation is a legal process designed to resolve disputes between individuals in judicial proceedings. Typically, only attorneys participate in the litigation process.
Litigators must have excellent listening skills to solve complex problems. Law school is the foundation for a competent litigator. A Litigator may be knowledgeable in history, government or political science, but these classes are not necessary to take before being admitted to law school. In law school, the individual studies legal reasoning in multiple areas of law including the litigation process.
Litigation requires specific procedures. The Plaintiff files a lawsuit. In a Complaint, the Plaintiff explicitly states his or her grievances against the Defendant. In the Answer, the Defendant typically denies that he or she was liable for any harm to the Plaintiff. The litigation process proceeds to the Discovery stage where the parties seek evidence to support their legal positions. At the end of Discovery, the parties may file a Motion, which is a document specifically designed to look for a remedy to resolve the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved, the case proceeds to a trial.
