Toronto (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
Art Branch, Inc., the parent company of GetLawyer.ca announced today the publication of a Canadian legal guide (http://www.getlawyer.ca/legal-articles/).
Created by the content development team at Art Branch, Inc., the new guide adds value for visitors who are looking for information on various aspects of the legal profession. It is a significant contribution to GetLawyer.ca, which helps Canadians choose from over 13,000 lawyers specializing in different practice areas.
The legal section offers an overview of the Canadian legal system and the formal requirements for becoming a lawyer in Canada. The guide also reviews the top Canadian law schools and looks at the cost of attendance, the different areas of practice, and the average earnings and salaries in the legal industry. The guide is intended for all those who want to learn more about the Canadian legal system and for people interested in pursuing a career in law. New lawyers can choose from a variety of positions. Some open their own practice while others work for law firms and represent large companies. Some lawyers become part of advocacy groups or governmental staffs. And while there are top lawyers who make millions, many attorneys have a modest income, and some struggle to pay their bills and student debts.
“The word lawyer is usually associated with wealth and success, but that’s not always the case. One has to look past the conventional wisdom because sometimes the numbers tell a different story,” said Peter Todorov, President of Art Branch Inc.
For many people the word lawyer is synonymous with a six-figure salary, large bonuses, and prosperity. Truly, some lawyers benefit from on-site childcare, full-service cafeterias, extended sabbaticals, and more. Some law firms make sure their attorneys have a glamorous lifestyle, but not all firms subsidize it. The truth is that attending a law school is a huge investment, and attorneys put in long hours at work. It is important to learn about employment prospects, average salaries, billable hours, and quality of life before deciding on whether to pursue a career in law.
