This study attempts to ascertain which lawyers "enter politics and why they do so, and why other lawyers neither enter" nor participate. To carry out this study, lawyers in the Hamilton area are divided into two groups: lawyer-politicians and non-politician lawyers. Then, by means of personal interviews, both groups are compared as to their early political background or interest" their personality types or traits, their attitudes, and their goals in life, in order to ascertain if any, or all of these approaches offer an explanation for the problem being studied.
