While many people try side-hustles and starting up their own businesses to achieve success, few ever manage to achieve it. The success rate for those who take traditional career paths, such as becoming a lawyer, however, is much higher, making this the more attractive for many to get the lifestyle that they want.
The problem, of course, is that gaining the qualifications that you need to become a practicing lawyer isn’t always easy. Often it involves a lot of time, money, and effort.
Fortunately, educational practices are changing for the better. Schools are changing the way that they deliver education, adding convenience for all students who study with them.
These modifications are the result of two broad factors: the changing legal landscape and the march of technology.
The demand for traditional criminal barristers is still present, but companies and individuals need people with legal expertise for a host of reasons, not just to defend them in court. Companies with intellectual property, for instance, need advice and strategies for how to protect it. Likewise, enterprises that must operate under a set of burdensome regulations also need advice and help.
Educational institutions, therefore, are adapting their curricula. Not only are they covering more niche law applications, but they’re also providing students with direct experience of the industries that they will work with in the future. It’s a fundamental change that takes learning out of the classroom and into the real world.
