What is a Lawyer?

A lawyer has studied (or is studying law) and has an expertise (or is developing an expertise) in advising lay people on how the law impacts them and their affairs. Qualified lawyers come from a wide range of different backgrounds and over recent years the profession has started to work hard to widen the diversity of those becoming professionally qualified as solicitors or barristers. There are a range of different routes open to those wanting to qualify and these range from apprenticeships to post graduate conversion courses.

There is a large network of lawyers in Birmingham with many opportunities to attend professional networking events as well as to join professional and social legal organisations that host regular get-togethers, training sessions, high table dinners and sporting events. Legal professionals form a strong and vibrant community. Do consider becoming a part of a lawyer’s social group.
