The right career choice for an individual to pursue will vary depending on the area of law they seek to practice in and the type of work they wish to do.

Qualification options within the legal progression include:

  • Solicitors
  • Barristers
  • Licensed Paralegals
  • Chartered Legal Executives / CILEX Lawyers
  • Licensed Conveyancers
  • Licensed Probate Practitioners
  • Notaries

Although other factors may play a part in deciding on the suitable career options for you, as a starting point, it is important to understand what each profession entails.
