You will represent clients in the lower courts and, with specialist training, in the higher courts. Qualified solicitors have a variety of career options and can choose to work in a private practice (in a firm of solicitors), within a business or organisation, in local or national government, or in the court services.

Barrister: Barristers are specialists offering advocacy and advice on legal matters and points of law and plead cases on behalf of their clients. There are a wide range of specialist areas including criminal law, chancery law and civil law of which not all appear in court. Most barristers work from Chambers and are self-employed.

Paralegal: As a paralegal, you will provide administrative and legal assistance for a firm of solicitors. Your duties will range from clerical work, to similar duties that would be undertaken by a trainee solicitor.

Community advisory work: If you are interested in the 'welfare' side of law, you could consider social and probation work, welfare advice and housing management.
