How to Become a Finance Lawyer

December - 5 - 2011

Lawyers are nowadays found in almost all the domains, such as: tax, corporate compliance, banking, public arenas and corporate compliance. In less word, their job involves working on legal guidance. The term of lawyer represents government organizations during proceedings involving legacy. Due to some studies made recently, almost 27% from the lawyers are self-employed.

First step in order to become a lawyer is obviously, to apply and wait for your application to be accepted. Then, as a student you should look after your domains – if you wish to become a finance lawyer, you should know you have to take extra classes in order to end your studies as a future lawyer should. Then, choose a university from all over the world where to study law. It should not be a hard decision, but we advice you to ask your family too for advice – as they are older, they know more than you. Usually, these courses take three years, so it should not be a problem to attend them.

While practicing, observe the real lawyers’ behavior. The best way to learn is to steal their job, so that you could be taught using their experience. Also, look for any extra activities involving your domain you may find. Enroll in any of the organizations to learn more about the subject and to meet new people. Acquaintances are imperatively important in this domain.  For example, your political views may be more important than you think, and you may have to adhere to certain beliefs in order to create a steady network of people you know and can work with. If you have Democratic Party beliefs, it will be much better for you to become friends with people who have the same beliefs, because in a job like this, personal opinions often come into question, and even if you don’t, others will definitely take them into consideration. That being said, someone with Democratic Party beliefs could have problems working for or with someone who supports the Republicans, and sometimes, even the way in which they perform their jobs is influenced by this. Of course, this is just one of the things you have to consider, and it is not a set rule, but rather something you need to be aware of before choosing a place to work.Analyze the place where you are going to practice and be always ready for any exam. Most states require lawyers to pass one or more exams, depending on the competition. Choose the one that best suits you, whether is the three-hour exam or the one that takes six hours.

Last but not least, create a resume where to note all you internships and places where you have studied. Do not forget to add too all the international certifications you have (in case you do). If not, there is still plenty of time for you to prepare for one. Also, look for any job interviews that suit your domain. Do not forget about any of them, and also keep in mind that of you are not accepted from the first time, it does not mean you are wrong. All our life is filled with experiences and so do interviews for a job. You will leave the cabinet with more knowledge than when you entered it!
