Resource: What is it really like to work in law?

How does the work of a lawyer really measure up to all those TV dramas and bestselling books? How do you go about identifying which areas of law you might be interested in; or what sort of employer and what kind of clients you want to work for?

Check out the thirty-six case studies on the College of Law’s free website www.college-of-law.co.uk/case-studies, where you can discover the real day-to-day work of lawyers in practice areas as diverse as welfare and banking, environmental and entertainment, crime and corporate.

Read the real-life experiences of a prosecutor for the CPS, a magistrate, a District Judge, and a barrister… and start to build a picture of what it is like to work for employers as diverse as international firms to sole practitioners.
