This occupation field involves careers to do with the "rights" and wrongs of human conduct. Careers in the legal profession require good language skills, a good memory and an analytical mind with an ability to intepret, reason and form certain opinion based on the facts at hand. The fact that the opinion must be communicated efficiently either in writing or verbally, confirms the need for a good command of language. Various opportunities exist in the legal profession and specialisation is possible. Certain lawyers prefer the court and associated activities such as debate, whilst others will indulge themselves in contracts and paper work and never see the inside of a courtroom. Some lawyers enter the world of business as advisors (Commercial Law); others prefer work that is more service related (Lawyers for Human Rights).
