Welcome from the Law Society
When you qualify as a solicitor, you will be rightly recognised as having legal knowledge, integrity, independence and a commitment to client care. Beyond this, you will also have joined a profession which is dedicated to upholding some of the most fundamental principles of a democratic and fair society, including a commitment to the rule of law and access to justice. These shared values define us as a single profession, despite the marvellous variety of our activities.
Few other professional qualifications offer such a rewarding and intellectually challenging career, or open the door to such a wide range of opportunities. While the challenges facing the profession are significant, I am convinced that the range of responses they will provoke will deliver new and exciting ways of working for all solicitors.
We are committed at the Law Society to helping all members, and aspiring members, of the profession to reach their potential and achieve their career ambitions, whatever route they choose to take. LawCareers.Net is an invaluable guide to navigating the many roads open to new entrants in the profession and I commend it highly to all those considering a career in the law.
