The Industry

Are you wondering “What does a career in the legal field look like?” Generally speaking, the amount of education needed greatly depends on which career path you take in the legal industry. Law firms are the most common places of employment for those who wish to work in the legal field, and there are usually many different jobs available with different career paths. Whether you wish to be a lawyer, a paralegal, or a records clerk, you’ll need to have skills like critical thinking, expertise in legal terminology, and knowledge of software used in law firms.

The Career Options

The legal field is a broad one, and there are numerous career paths that you can take: paralegal, lawyer, legal assistant, secretary, or judge. While lawyers make up the largest segment of the field, there are other positions in legal administration, management, and business operations. Different levels of education are required for various jobs in the legal industry. If you want to become a lawyer or a judge, you must go to law school and pass the state bar exam.

The Internship

An internship in law school is essentially a requirement before starting your law career. As a legal intern, you will have the opportunity to work directly with licensed attorneys that can advise you on how to handle tough cases, teach you how to think and write logically, and even help you prepare for the bar exam. You’ll learn how to use research, practice and case management software such as Lexis-Nexis, Westlaw, and Legal Tracker.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs in the legal field is expected to grow 6% through 2024, which is about average.
