Possible careers open to law graduates


Depending upon a person’s career goals, a lawyer may choose to build their own law firm. On the other hand, an attorney might utilize their legal training in order to launch a political career. They may make a parallel move to working for a government agency or they might work for a government agency before moving into private practice. Attorneys additionally may pick the academia as their focus. The career path for lawyers in South Africa largely relies upon the attorney and their personal career goals.
