Some attorneys choose to practice in a field that they enjoy or feel will be most rewarding. Often, the choice is driven by a desire for a more “hands-on” approach to their work. If you do not have experience with an area of law, finding employment may be difficult as employers tend to look for those who are familiar with their industry. In addition, if you decide on this career path and want to continue working towards becoming partner at your firm, it may require additional years of legal education after being admitted into practice.
