Seattle Legal Jobs
A wide variety of legal jobs are available in Seattle for a diverse set of skills and education. With many different law specialties, available careers may include everything from a mailroom clerk or office manager in a law firm, to lawyers and judges.

Besides being about 100 miles from the Canadian border, Seattle is also considered a major trading hub with Asian countries, because of its location on the Pacific coast. Needless to say, there are ample legal jobs with a focus on international and corporate law.

International law is a group of laws set up governing interaction between two countries; in this situation, the United States and another country. A significant difference between traditional laws and international laws is that a traditional law generally governs people while international laws provide rules and regulations for entire countries, often applicable to governments and businesses.

Another legal focus for the Seattle area is contract law, which focuses on written obligations, often associated with trade practices. For example, a contract paralegal works with a variety of different contracts. They may work with people in the law firm to prepare contracts for a legal department or may assist in proposing additional verbiage or clauses for these contracts. When working with contracts, a paralegal may identify potential issues with that contract and work to alleviate that particular problem.

Because there are so many business obligations, there is a growing need for corporate law employees as well. A corporate lawyer would be expected to be experienced in many branches of the law, including employment, acquisitions, real estate, trademarks, and international law, if necessary. As a corporate lawyer, you would be asked to look out for the best interests of that company, exclusive of the owners or officers.

To qualify as an attorney in Seattle, you will need to hold a B.A. from an undergraduate school to qualify for entrance into an American Bar Association accredited law school. From here, you will need to earn a juris doctorate (J.D.) degree. After receiving your J.D. degree, you will be required to pass the State of Washington bar exam.

Another asset when considering a legal job in Seattle is knowing a second language; French is useful due to the proximity of Canada, but Japanese is also a popular second language because of the abundant trade with Asian countries.
