The legal field includes a variety of professional and support careers. However, all of these careers are focused on lawyers, the tasks they perform and various issues related to both preventing and participating in litigation.
Individuals who are interested in a legal career who aren’t planning to become lawyers may consider work as legal assistants or paralegals. These individuals help lawyers organize legal documents, analyse cases and prepare for trial. Lawyers are responsible for the actual representation of clients, which involves numerous in-depth tasks, and they must be licensed.
To practice as a legal professional, students need to earn an undergraduate degree. Specialized practice might require additional training or a dual degree. For example, students looking to enter the legal profession as environmental lawyers might earn a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Environmental Law.
