Becoming a Qualified Lawyer

Routes into Becoming a Qualified Lawyer

Becoming a lawyer requires dedication, hard work, time and money. Each step is its own hurdle that must be conquered before moving on to the next. While we are not dismissing the value of a traditional route into law, we want those who are considering a career in law to know other routes that are available. For example, did you know you don’t need a degree to become a qualified lawyer?

An informed choice is something we hope all those embarking into the legal industry can take full advantage of.

As such, let us introduce you to other routes into law that are just as valid as the traditional one. The benefits of these routes speak for themselves, often cheaper, just as rigorous in terms of learning and more flexible. Without further ado:
