Not enough. (do you need one?)
As of 2014, there are 10,000 lawyers who are employed by the US Department of Justice. The department was established on July 1, 1870.
25 of the 43 presidents, including the current President Obama, were members of the bar and qualified to practice as lawyers. Some of them, such as Jefferson, John Quincy Adam…s and Woodrow Wilson, had a very limited practice. (Obama is known as the 44th President, but only 43 people have been President. Cleveland is counted twice, as both the 22nd and 24 presidents.)
As of June 2014, we have had 44 U.S. Presidents. Of those, 27 worked as lawyers before entering political life. This leaves 17 who were not lawyers. Nine former presidents… were U.S. Army generals.

Bush were not lawyers. Thomas Jefferson and Woodrow Wilson were admitted to the bar, but did not practice law. John Q. Adams practiced law for only a short time before getting into diplomatic and political work.
26 of the 43 US presidents were admitted to the bar as lawyers. Madison and Monroe studied but did wish to practice it. Theodore Roosevelt went to law school for a year but dr…opped out without taking the bar exam. Woodrow Wilson was a scholar of political science and taught law courses but was not a lawyer.
Yes. Of the 43 US presidents, 26 have been lawyers. Therefore 17 were not.
George Washington, U S Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, Harry S Truman, Lyndon B Johnson, Jimmy Carter and George W Bush were some presidents who were not lawyers.
