There are many more career opportunities in the legal profession than just solicitor and barrister. They include paralegals, chartered legal executives, apprentices, legal secretaries, licensed conveyancers, legal executives, notaries, cost lawyers, patent and trade mark attorneys, special constables, police officers, sergeants, inspectors, legal support staff, judges, justices of the supreme court, magistrates and coroners. Not all legal jobs are at law firms; they might be in the public sector, with private companies or with charities. The legal profession is beginning to offer apprenticeships and new frameworks are being developed. The legal services and advice occupations are increasing in number. They deliver a wide range of services in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
