For example, you might wish to focus your studies on the legislation and legal processes surrounding the litigation of auto accidents. Or, you might specialise in product liability and copyright infringement on behalf of an individual, company or industry.
Careers in this field may include traditional roles within legal practise, such as legal representation for an individual or organisation. You might also explore roles in consultation such as solicitation, as well as policy-making on behalf of regulatory bodies.
