Category split[edit]

Right now, this category is listed under both Occupations and People by occupation. Many articles in this section should not be included in "People by occupation", namely lawyers, judges, law clerks—anything that is describing the occupation itself, not people within it! Refer to the People by occupation category to see literally hundreds of examples of this dissociation. Examining these categories, it is clear that most are divided as I have described, and those that are not are as hopelessly disorganised as this one. Basically, any category with the word "occupation(s)" in it describe a broad range of careers and not the people within them! If I have a chance soon, and there are no strong objections, I will do this myself. —Skittleys (talk) 06:53, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

It is indeed a mess. OLPAS for example is an on-line application system. Not in a million years could that be described as an "occupation". I'd guess about 1/3 of these category items shouldn't be here for that sort of reason. Francis Davey (talk) 08:06, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
I've removed the "People by occupation" category. Will work more on the rest. Feel free to suggest and/or create appropriate sub-categories.Misterx2000 (talk) 08:23, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

relationship with Category:Lawyer[edit]

Legal professions now redirects to Lawyer. What should we do about this category? --kwan-in (talk) 00:30, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
