Legal Training

The first and most basic level of legal training can be and should be obtained while an individual is in law school. Ideally, an individual will have obtained a basic level of legal training before entering law school so that they are aware of the level of commitment that will be expected for them following the completion of their legal education and legal training.

However, just because an individual completes law school and passes the bar exam which will allow the individual to be recognized as a lawyer, by no means will the individual have completed their legal training. The most important part of the prospective lawyer's legal training is after they have passed the bar exam. For many individuals, legal training begins in earnest when they join a law firm, since they will then be given the opportunity to obtain practical and on the job legal training.

The legal training obtained by an individual will depend to a great extent on the skills of the particular individual. A person who is skilled at researching information may be given further legal training in conducting research. If the individual is very articulate or persuasive, they may be given the opportunity to pursue further legal training in representing a client in court.

No matter what the specific field or avenue of legal training, most new lawyers will begin their legal training with small roles or cases, so it is important to not become discouraged due to the work load or type of cases.
