orion-list Scribes - Transcribers vs. Lawyers

With all this talk about scribes, would someone venture
some opinions?  Was there different terms or terminology
for scribes who "transcribed" and "copied" documents....
versus..... those scribes who functioned as lawyers?

Or does the idea that scribes functioned as lawyers
come more from the creative imaginations of New Testament
scholars who are trying to explain the use of the term "scribe"
in the Bible?
