1. Experiential learning is exactly what it sounds like: learning through experience. Educati0n is no longer just about sitting in a classroom and being passive recipients of others’ knowledge through lectures and readings. A true and effective education is all about getting out there and trying new things in new and diverse contexts where your legal knowledge can be applied, beyond the mandatory articling in a legal education. For instance, you may choose to participate in faculty-led programs that integrate real case work into your curriculum, or you may find an opportunity to volunteer with a local legal or advocacy organization where you can see your legal education come to life. Get out there, and get experience now, so that when graduation hits, your resume already looks attractive, robust and well-developed.

1. Become a Para Legal Volunteer. As you enter law school, the Legal Services Authority might try to recruit the freshers into their Para Legal Volunteer (PLV) Program.
2. Work-from-Home Internships (moving from free to paid assignments) As law students, you have to write. It’s better to take up this activity at the earliest and gear up for the future.
3. Legal Blogging/ Content Writing. I can’t possibly stress enough how many times I have been told that writing is what counts. Reading lets you gain knowledge, listening further adds to the pool, but writing is necessary to fortify that knowledge.
4. Participating in Various Competitions. It is better to start participating in competitions early on in your student life. The level of confidence and professionalism built with it, and the links made, are priceless.
5. Maintaining a Freelancer Profile. Get registered on LinkedIn, Freelancer.com and any other site that catches your fancy. The freelancing websites are updated with an inhuman amount of work, that doesn’t always require a lawyer to do.
6. Representing Parties in Court. This might seem puzzling, but yes, you can represent other parties in specific courts even if you are not a registered advocate.
7. Preparing case briefs. Finding a busy lawyer that you are comfortable with for work, and making them value you enough to pay you is the only ordeal in this line of business.
8. Ghost-writing books. Ghostwriting is when you write for someone else, and it ends up as their work. They will provide you with the insights and their take on what the content should be like.
9. Conventional Methods- Part-Time Internships and Research Assistants. Pursuing Part-Time Internships has been an age-old method of earning money while learning the law.

1. Accounting. Talintyre says the “Big Four” accounting firms in Australia (PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Ernst & Young and Deloitte) are increasingly trying to poach top-tier lawyers for their own growing legal services arms.
2. Journalism. Many lawyers make excellent journalists because of their attention to detail, natural scepticism, writing skills, and knowledge of Australia’s complex political and legal system.
3. Recruitment. Many lawyers drift into legal recruitment because of their knowledge of the legal industry and contacts.
4. Politics. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop and independent Senator Nick Xenophon are among the many Australian politicians with law degrees.
5. Management consulting. Top-tier management consulting firms like Boston Consulting Group, McKinsey & Company and Bain & Company often encourage law graduates to apply to them because a law degree teaches you valuable critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
6. Judge's associate. While not entirely outside the law, judge’s associate positions are well paid and allow you to hone your legal research skills in a different capacity to that of a lawyer.
7. Human resources. A move into human resources (HR) makes sense for many lawyers as it requires an ability to apply employment laws and mitigate risks relating to the employees’ health and safety.
8. Wealth management / investment banking. Legal knowledge comes in handy for wealth managers seeking to circumvent banking laws and loopholes to the advantage of their investors.
9. Police prosecutor.
10. Advocacy. Law graduates are taught to argue and influence decisions, so if you feel strongly about a cause, why not use those skills in public interest advocacy?

1. I Can Make a Lot of Money as a Lawyer. Yeah, you can. Many law students go into school gunning for the $160K-per-year-plus-bonus gig with a big law firm after graduation—and some end up with just that.
2. A Law Degree is Versatile. That’s true. You can find JDs doing all sorts of things that require some sort of graduate education, but that doesn’t mean they needed a law degree.
3. Graduation is Getting Close and I Don’t Have Anything Better to Do. Law school has been described as the “great American default option.” Many college seniors or recent grads apply because they don’t know what else to do, and they figure that going back to school will let them keep their options open a little longer.
4. I Just Love "the Law" Great. It’s obviously important to enjoy what you do. But saying, “I love the law” is pretty broad—it’s kind of like saying, “I love stuff”—so it’s good to know what aspect of the law appeals to you and how to translate that into a career.
5. I’ll Get to Make a Difference. For all the negative stereotypes, there are many lawyers who do a lot to help people through community-based legal aid organizations or pro-bono practices.
