Government attorneys focus on a particular area of government regulation. These lawyers are often called “regulatory lawyers” and can work for the government itself or work in the private sector helping people interact with the government. Some government law attorneys are also known as “public interest lawyers.” Public interest lawyers tend to focus on those areas where a large group of individuals is affected by government regulation–for example, environmental laws or anti-discrimination laws.
