Legal Profession: Is it for you?

A No-Nonsense Guide to a Career in the Law

Solicitor Charles Ward introduces the legal profession as a career option for school leavers and anyone else considering a career-change. But as this book points out, there are at least seven distinct career-options within the law. It also deals with the unspoken issues, such as ‘how much do lawyers really earn?’

As well as providing everything you need to know about training to be a lawyer, the book also looks at the human side of becoming a lawyer. What are the personal qualities that make a good lawyer? And why are they so important? How do you develop a legal career?

And no introduction to the legal profession would be complete without an overview of its rich history dating back to the Knights Templar.
