Legal Jobs
Legal jobs require different skills, experience, qualifications and interests. The following jobs fall under this category:

A lawyer is can work on different cases including civil and criminal lawsuits. One day a lawyer might be presenting the client in the courtroom and the next day he might be helping people finalize a divorce. The next day he could be advising people on legal issues or drawing up a will. The salaries of a lawyer can also vary according to the job and practice.

A lawyer has to advise their client about their legal situation. He is involved in an individual case or in cases involving companies. He might work on individual proceedings, small disputes behind closed doors, or on various court proceedings. However, a lawyer has to make sure that he represents the best interest of his clients. A lawyer cannot slack in the courtroom, and he has to go wherever he is needed.

If you wish to have a career in the law, but you do not want to take the center stage in the courtroom, you can consider a career as a legal secretary. Each barrister chamber, financial company and law firm need a legal secretary so that the office can run well. Working in this supporting role can be very demanding and it is a job that requires someone who is responsible. However, the job can be a great one and can involve interesting and challenging tasks. The main job of a legal secretary involves giving administrative and secretarial support to legal executives and lawyers.

If you wish, you can also work as a legal accountant, a legal cashier, or a bookkeeper. However, regardless of the names you will be given, you will be doing the same job. When you work as a legal accountant, you will be chosen just like a regular accountant and you will be trained like an accountant with legal knowledge. Your job will include billing the clients, paying the clients, banking, making account transfers, making bank reconciliations, making data entries, and filing the financial report for the management. You will also have to prepare the profit and loss reports for annual accounts.

Another type of legal job is an investigator. A claim investigator has the job of sorting out real claimants from fraudsters. The person will have to work with the insurance companies and will be the one to decide whether money is paid on claims or not. This person also has also to determine the liability level and can negotiate the price when the payout has been decided on.
