If the usual world of the legal firm seems stifling to you, and if you are particularly drawn to legal cases involving the business world or medical practice, you may be able to make a career as a contract lawyer. Contract lawyers are like freelance lawyers; they aren't on retainer through a firm and they take cases on an individual contract basis. They work to fulfill a contract and don't worry about billable hours, as is the usual business practice with a law firm's lawyers.
It may seem a little odd to join purchasing, which is concerned with the assembling of supplies, equipment and services essential to the company's production, and contract administration, which is concerned essentially with the sale of products, in a single category. Yet in reality they are closely related inasmuch as both are primarily concerned with the developing and monitoring of contracts.
Working as a contract attorney has both pros and cons, just like any other attorney. Some of the pros include having a variety of work and having compensation that is tied to their hours. Some of the cons include a lower average salary compared to regular attorneys and less prestige than regular attorneys have.
