Guides to Careers in Law

LawCareers.Net have published the 2022 editions of The Beginner's Guide to a Career in Law and The Law Apprenticeships Guide and made these free for students and parents/guardians to access.

Both booklets are essential reading for aspiring lawyers of school age and those who advise them. Even while at school, students are making decisions that will impact directly on a potential legal career; in particular, what degree to study (law or non-law) or whether to take a degree course at all. If candidates do not have this key information, their hopes could be dashed.

The Beginner’s Guide to a Career in Law looks at how lawyers recruit, what they look for in candidates, what candidates need to do when, and how they can maximise their chances, both immediately and as time goes by.

The Law Apprenticeships Guide focuses on the different types of law apprenticeship available, the key skills required, and the pros and cons of undertaking an apprenticeship or going to university, with case studies from those who have done it.
