Overview of Law & Legal Services

Law and Legal Services are a very valuable part of the world we live in, it is intertwined with almost every aspect of our society starting with registering your birth, through to marriage and buying a house.

When thinking about a career in the legal profession you would firstly need to think about what you would like to do, do you want to become a barrister, solicitor or would you prefer an alternative role such as a legal secretary, court clerk, coroner or legal journalist.

Law is a very interesting, stimulating and an often lucrative career path but its pretty tough to get into and will require extreme dedication and motivation, succeeding as a solicitor will take at least three years to train if you are a law graduate, four year for a non-law graduate and at least six years if you are not a graduate.
