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.

Does a Postgraduate Degree Help You with Law Jobs?

During your undergraduate degree there should be ample opportunities to research the law, whether for an essay, dissertation or other piece of assessed project work. Many students find that the freedom offered by the chance to carry out your own individually designed and structured research is the most rewarding of all opportunities available at university. If you find this to be the case then you may well be cut out for a career in academia. But what does a career in academia mean? For the discipline of law it usually means a mixture of teaching, research and the associated administration that inevitably accompanies these activities-especially teaching. Unlike some disciplines, such as science, there are very few university jobs that involve pure research, unless you confine yourself to a research post in which case you limit your career horizons and income. If you are committed to the academic life then I would recommend that you enroll in a postgraduate degree to develop your research skills. This is not necessarily the advice everyone would offer, as it is possible to become a member of law school staff without a postgraduate degree if you have an alternative professional qualification that substitutes practical experience for time-served research experience. However, if you do not undertake a postgraduate degree, then you will have to spend time gaining the professional qualification and if that is not immediately appealing to you, there is little point in using it as a route to academia.
