If you are in law school or are considering going to law school, one of the areas you might be interested in working in is contract law. In contract law attorney jobs, the lawyer will represent a party on one side or the other of a case that deals with contract law. Contract law jobs can be done in private practice, as a staff lawyer for a corporation, or while working for the government or nonprofit organizations.
There are many attorney jobs available but perhaps one of the most lucrative would be that of a contract attorney. This type of lawyer is simply hired on a contract basis. In other words, it's like temporary employment. It has its advantage in that a lawyer who is not quite sure about what he wants to do can sort of, float around and try different avenues. The down side of this type of legal employment is there is no security in it. You don't know where and when your next attorney job may be. In some circles of the law it may not be considered all that prestigious either. Most attorneys in the industry suggest that a lawyer should be attached to some type of permanent law practice.
