Lawyers are licensed legal practitioners qualified to give legal advice.

Nature of the job

The practice of law can be very wide. This can include fields in Criminal, Civil, Common and Statuate. While you are not required to select which field you would want to go into upfront, it would be wise to know which field that you are most interested in before you decide on a career in law.

A law degree does offer many options to work in other industries other than those that you may see on an episode of Suits, Boston Legal or Law & Order. You can venture into the lucrative field of banking and finance, conflict resolution or arbitration, or work as a consultant in specialised fields such as tax, patents or conveyancing. The world is your oyster. Once qualified, you can work in a private practice, in-house in an organisation or in government.
