If you want the opportunity to be a trusted adviser to clients from all walks of life and have a job with an intellectual challenge (not to mention a decent salary), qualifying as a solicitor could be for you. Solicitors are involved in almost all aspects of life – wherever people are doing business or disputing their rights, there’s the potential for legal involvement. Competition for vacation schemes and training contracts is fierce, however, so follow our advice on applications, interviews and assessment centres to give yourself the best possible chance to get hired. We also offer guidance on the typical salaries on offer and overviews of the areas of practice available to you.
