What Do You Need to Do to Get Construction Law Jobs?

52 Views
Some of the duties construction law jobs may include an understanding of environmental and building regulations as well as other legal issues like contract in subcontract issues, liability, negligence, dispute resolution, dispute avoidance, and more.

It wasn't always so, but construction law has become a separate entity unto itself, broken out in recent years from corporate law or real estate law, or from project finance. Oftentimes, construction law dovetails with energy laws like those pertaining to oil and gas, too.

Getting Construction Law Employment

If construction law is an area of expertise you want to cultivate, of course you need the proper education as described above. Once you've completed your education, your search for employment will begin. Of course, you don't necessarily have to wait until graduation to work on getting construction law jobs and should begin to network even while you're still in school. Getting internships in construction law firms, for example, can give you a great leg up when it comes time to search for construction law employment.

Networking and Going Online

Your school is going to be one of the first places you can start when you begin to network for future construction law jobs; if you serve an internship at a construction law firm, for example, those mentoring you in your internship may be able to connect you with resources for construction law employment as well.

However, one of the best ways to find work these days is to go online. Of course, there are large, mainstream and "catch all" jobsites available, and these may indeed have some construction law employment opportunities listed therein. A lot of these so-called jobsites are also chock-full of a lot of spam and junk, too, so you have to be careful. If you are comfortable with networking online, you can certainly sign up with one of the many professional social networking sites available (many of them free) and find contacts there. And of course, although these are often overlooked as venues for job opportunities, "regular" social networking sites like Facebook can also provide unforeseen job opportunities in construction law employment.

Staying Current with Network Contacts All of the Time

One of the most important things about networking is that even once you are gainfully employed, you should be constantly networking in the field of construction law; staying abreast of colleagues' doings and events will keep you "in the loop," so that you are much more prepared for the job you've already got, and just as importantly, prepared to change positions should it become necessary.

Specialized Jobsites

One of the best ways to find specialized work such as those you find with construction law jobs is to sign up with professional jobsites whose mission it is to find you the perfect job. One of these is LawCrossing.com. LawCrossing.com is geared to finding law jobs, and in particular for this particular job search, focuses on construction law jobs.
