Law Careers

Those who are interested in a law career may obtain employment as an attorney or paralegal. Law is an area that interest many people. In fact, many will admit to being addicted to reality shows that air live civil suits and television sitcoms depicting a lawyer's life. Unfortunately, many who want a law career only consider the financial aspect. Some decide on a career as a paralegal to avoid the high cost. However, there are downsides to being an attorney that may outweigh the monetary compensation. These disadvantages include grueling work schedules, defending notorious criminals, and low pay in the beginning

Prior to entering law school to begin a law career, future attorneys must have received a Bachelor's degree from an accredited university. These degrees may be in a variety of subjects including English, history, political science, or criminal justice. After completing their B.A., graduates must apply to law school. Many have hopes of attending a top law school. However, entry into one of these schools is very competitive. Those who have high goals of an Ivy League school should maintain a high grade point average and have funds to pay for an Ivy League education.

Many who want to become a lawyer begin their law training working as a clerk or legal secretary. This is a perfect career move because the future attorney will learn how to function in a law firm and become familiar with the daily routine of an attorney. In some cases, those who became an attorney began their career working as a paralegal. The duties of a paralegal include researching information, preparing reports, and assisting attorney with casework.

Those who begin a law career as a paralegal can receive training in high school or by attending a two or four-year college program. A paralegal's salary is determined by their experience and knowledge. Thus, a paralegal who receives a Bachelor's degree will be offered a considerably higher salary than a recent high school graduate. Paralegals who have hopes of becoming an attorney should consider obtaining a college degree.
