'Range of graduate jobs for lawyers'
Thursday, 11 September 2008
Those looking for graduate jobs in law have the choice of more than one route, according to one expert.
Paul Marsh, president of the Law Society, explains that careers in the profession can be found in a range of places.
These include private practices where people will work on matters such as employment law, contacts and mergers and acquisitions, he stated
Another option is local government where lawyers provide advice to councils on the services they provide to the public, Mr Marsh added.
"The Crown Prosecution Service is another career option for solicitors. The Service prosecutes the majority of criminal cases in England and Wales," he said.
However, before someone embarks on a career they will have to focus on qualifying, Mr Marsh concluded.
Recently, Legal Week reported that Cleary Gottlieb Steen and Hamilton is to offer all it's graduate training through the College of Law.
According to the firm, this will allow them to deliver the guidance more effectively.
