Those who are looking for law related jobs should know that this is a rather long process and it will take a great deal of commitment to reach this goal. This is particularly true for those looking for attorney work, as this career requires years of schooling. This is not something that you can simply do right away, as you must plan ahead before applying for any law jobs. This is because the schooling that you receive will be rather specialized, since certain degrees transfer into the legal field better than others will. While you do not necessarily need a pre-law degree to get law work, you will definitely need a law degree to find any attorney jobs in your area.
Law is one of the oldest professions in the world ad undoubtedly one of the most rewarding ones. To be a lawyer and a successful one at that, you need a few intrinsic basic qualities that will enable you to go far in this field.
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.
