Law

Welcome to FAMU’s Law Community! 

About Law:

Lawyers typically work in one of five sectors: for law firms, corporations and other businesses, government agencies, public-interest organizations/nonprofits, or in education. Most lawyers specialize in either transactional or litigation work. Transactional lawyers do most of their work in offices. Litigators argue cases in court. If you like to work behind the scenes, researching and writing and grappling with difficult legal concepts, then you might prefer transactional work. If you are more outgoing and enjoy standing in front of people and speaking extemporaneously, then you will like litigation. Careers in Law comes in many varieties. 

What does Professional Development (PD) look like for Law:

An increasing number of employers require their attorneys to have a master of laws (LL.M.) degree in a specialized area (such as business law, dispute resolution, or litigation/trial advocacy) or a master’s degree in business management, finance, taxation, or another field. Before entering the law field students, may attend training for litigation and transactional workshops to practice concepts tailored to their areas of interest.
