Legal Jobs

Overview

Within this sector, workers focus on serving their clients, whether they are individuals, organization or the government itself, all within the framework of the legal system. Positions vary greatly depending on the legal services offered, in what capacity, and for whom. Work can be conducted in or out of the courtroom, and can deal with personal injury, criminal law, corporate law, property law, family law, copyright law, criminal procedure and much more.

Required Skills

Nevertheless, most workers in the legal sector require a diverse skill set, wherever their expertise lies. The following characteristics are typically of those who succeed in the law industry:

  • Advanced problem solving abilities, as well as knowing how to think quickly and innovatively
  • Excellent written and spoken communication and impeccable grasp of language
  • Solid reasoning and logic skills
  • Responsibility and ability to meet deadlines, be punctual and professional
  • Detail oriented personality with strong organization skills
  • Well developed interpersonal skills, persuasive character and capacity to work well in teams
  • Ability to take in, process and synthesize vast amounts of information

A law degree is almost always essential, and legal jobs of all kinds require extensive tertiary university education. There are typically awards, bursaries and prizes for high performers, and good performance at university level can be predictive of success after graduation with offers of employment with organizations.

Career Trajectories

A Barrister advises his client and represents them in court, although they typically specialize in only one or two areas of law. These can be varied, such as divorce law or intellectual property law.

A judge oversees a courtroom and ensures the law is being upheld. They consider each case and the information presented by barristers and interpret relevant laws. Positions as judges are highly competitive and only available to those who have practiced excellently for many years in another legal field.

A solicitor also acts in a supervisory capacity and advises clients on how to understand legal issues affecting them, and how best to proceed. This could include injury law, contract law and company law in general.

A conveyancer is a legal professional who buys and sells property for clients and manages their properties within the confines of the local law.

A law clerk acts in an administrative role by supporting barristers, judges and sometimes solicitors with research and preparation of essential documents for their cases. Other administrative tasks include secretarial duties, filing and the coordination of meetings.
