As a lawyer, you have to continuously read, keeping yourself up-to-date with the latest happenings the world over. Apart from legal knowledge, you should be capable of quick thinking and logical reasoning, both rounded off with a thick finishing coat of self-confidence and excellent communication skills.

If you choose law you can be a lawyer, solicitor, advocate or a legal executive. Of course you can also become a judge after years of experience. Solicitors only prepare the paper work while an advocate represents the case before the judge. A legal executive works for a corporate firm and acts on behalf of the firm.

Apart from these activities, lawyers also vet contracts between parties, corporate or individual, advise on transfer of technology law, corporate mergers and acquisitions, oversee statutory adherence, legal compliance, etc. They handle matters related to property, insurance, taxation, contract, etc.

A police officer's basic tasks are keeping public order and protecting lives and property. This covers investigating crimes, patrolling streets, regulating traffic, etc. You will also be called to help in times of natural calamity like floods, cyclone, aircraft, rail accidents, etc.

As you know, decision on the right career and the right professional course for you is a very crucial one. Your decision depends on lot of factors. It would be very much inappropriate for us to suggest the right career for you on the basis of information you have given here. Ideally, you should choose the right career by the following steps:

Step 1: Assess your true abilities, interests and personality.

Step 3: Explore all the careers in your primary list. Learn about the job profiles, requirements, remuneration, prospects, how to develop your career, a typical day in the life of the professional. Interact with professionals working in the field, access information on the careers on the internet, and from libraries, read as much as you can on the careers, attend career talks and seminars.

Step 4: After you are fully aware about the careers in your primary list, select the one or two, which interest you most. And then do whatever is required to develop a career in your selected field.
