The legal industry consists of much more than just lawyers and judges. In fact, it encompasses a wide range of fields such as legal services, court systems, law enforcement, corrections, criminal justice, social services, mediation, legal education, paralegals, and a great deal more. Career Opportunities in Law and the Legal Industry provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of careers in the legal industry. It explores jobs that require a license or law degree as well as jobs that require no special training. Furthermore, because the legal industry is continually and rapidly growing, many of the occupations profiled in this book are in current demand or in emerging fields. More than 80 jobs are profiled, and several extensive appendixes provide directories of appropriate educational institutions, industry associations and organizations, periodicals, websites, and other useful information. Positions profiled include: Environmental lawyerLegal receptionistBail bond agentCriminologistAppraiserPrivate investigatorLegal videographerCourt interpreterAppellate judge Juvenile counselor Public-interest advocate.
