It is a fact that in most of the jurisdictions, the license is a must to give legal opinions and represent clients in court of law. As the legal industry is frequently firmly regulated, acquiring particular experience of lawyer work can be quite tricky. There are some jurisdictions that still allow legal apprenticeships, where an individual can work with the guidance of a lawyer who has a license, performing different duties that a legal representative would perform. In its place, there are many jurisdictions that require future attorneys to attend a law school and get knowledge about the actual lawyer’s work through internship programs, supervised clinics, and other means like work positions made available to graduate students while they are looking for license.

If you are wondering how to deal with racism at your student or entry level job, the following post has some advice.
