If you are looking to find out how much a lawyer would earn in South Africa, you may wish to consider one of the following options. Pursuing a job in Law will mean that you will have to embark on a very long and difficult educational journey, but the journey will be incredibly rewarding in the end. Here are some ways that you can find out how much it is worth to train to be a lawyer these days:

  • Visit your local job centre

If you go into your local town or look online for the address of your local job centre or agency, you can go in and ask them for professional advice. Not only will they be able to provide you with the information regarding the amount of money you will receive in a job as a lawyer, you may also be able to get hooked up with a job offer. If they don't actually offer you a proper job as a lawyer, they could still offer you an apprenticeship or a work experience opportunity. Even if you don't get paid for the work you do in either an apprenticeship or work experience placement, you should still consider going for it, as it will give you the skills and experience that you need when you are looking for a proper job in the future.

  • Get work experience so you have an understanding of what to expect

The importance of having experience in the line of work that you are interested in is of paramount importance. Most employers now look at mainly experience that people have had, ignoring the qualifications and skills that they may have, to an extent. This means that those who haven't actually had paid jobs in the arena of work that you are interested in will struggle to get another one of a decent caliber.

This means that getting work experience in, as something to write on your CV, is more important than you may think.
