Updated Guides to Law Careers (All years)
We are delighted to announce that the 2023 editions of The Beginner’s Guide to a Career in Law and The Law Apprenticeships Guide have just been published and copies are now available free of charge.
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. Furthermore, we believe it is crucial that careers advisers in schools have access to the very best information.
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.
Copies of The Beginner’s Guide to a Career in Law 2023 and The Law Apprenticeships Guide 2023 are available in the M11 Careers Room.
The content for both guides can also be viewed on the LawCareers.Net website: www.lawcareers.net
