That word reminds me of Avocado.

In French, the word for lawyer and avocado is the same - "avocat". It's one of the only words I remember from school :D

'Loiers. Loyers. Loiars?!'

I'm a native English speaker, but I just realised I had no idea how to spell 'lawyers'.

Guess I just have to remember that it has the word 'law' in it.

What about "The attorneys"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Arnauti

That's an accepted answer here, along with solicitors, advocates, and barristers.

It sound more "advocates". Connected to lawyers from the word "barrister".

Seems like I'll never stop Wondering how many similarities does Swedish have compared to Russian. Адвокаты! (Advokat)s

They used to show the Amercan television program "The Practice" on tv in Sweden when I was a kid and that's how I remembered this word. It was called "Advokaterna"
