How does someone become a lawyer in England?

In some countries in order to practice as a lawyer it is necessary to get a University degree in law. However, in others a degree may be insufficient. Professional examinations must be passed. In Britain, it is not in fact necessary to have a degree, although nowadays most people entering the profession do. The main requirement is to pass the Bar Final examination (for barristers) or the law Society Final examination (for solicitor). Someone with university degree in a subject other than law needs first to take a preparatory course. Someone without a degree at all may also prepare for the final examination, but this will take several years. In most countries, lawyers will tell you that the time they spent studying for their law finals was one of the worst periods of their life. This is because an enormous number of procedural rules covering a wide area of law must be memorized.

Even after passing the examination a lawyer is not necessarily qualified. A solicitor in England, for example, must then spend two years as an articled clerk. During this time his work is closely supervised by an experienced lawyer, and he must take further courses. A barrister must spend a similar year as a pupil.
