I can’t really think of any way the experience could be improved. Sheldon’s expertise and contacts in the market were invaluable, I really felt like he made a huge difference to my chances of securing an NQ role in the area I wanted to pursue.

With over 25 years of specialist industry experience placing legal professionals in jobs, and robust relationships with a vast network of legal employers – we offer a wide range of legal jobs across all levels of seniority. They include paralegal jobs, litigation legal assistants, law clerks, newly qualified solicitor jobs, associate jobs, lawyers and in-house legal roles.

There are quite a few avenues into the legal industry. The first and most obvious is to acquire a law degree, but the landscape is changing. The fastest route to becoming a solicitor or even a barrister is getting your university degree and subsequent qualifications.

But if that’s not an option, then some other routes in are to become a legal assistant, with positions starting at the $45,000 mark. To become a lawyer or solicitor, you will need that qualification – which, if you haven’t been to university, you can do in your own time if you’re juggling work life and a family.

Becoming a paralegal is also an excellent way to get into the legal industry – and it pays well too with the range in Montreal being $70,000 - $120,000 in a large-sized firm. Then there’s the role of legal secretary – the backbone of any legal business, and you don’t need prior industry knowledge.

A law degree is not necessarily required to work in the legal space. We have plenty of jobs in the legal industry on our books that don’t require a law degree. They include paralegal roles, legal assistants, legal and company secretaries. Also remember if you’re looking for a career change, consider all your transferable skills.

Do your research before a legal job interview. Remember the legal industry is a competitive market, so find out all you can about the company you’re interviewing with. Our legal specialist recruiters will be sure to give you as much information and advice to help you prepare. Also remember to have your own questions at the ready, to demonstrate your enthusiasm, motivation and development goals.
