What do deans of law schools, law firm recruitment personnel, practising lawyers, and noteworthy members of the judiciary all have in common?

Every new law student would definitely have a love for justice and a desire to succeed in this great profession. However, there is widespread agreement that graduates are unprepared to survive, let alone succeed in the legal profession, because they have no understanding what it takes to be a lawyer or what skills they would need in practise. This is the subject of this book.

This book will provide students with a foundation for understanding what is required of them in order to achieve their maximum potential. It draws on the experience of several leading Malaysian law firms to provide insight into what to expect as a first-year litigator in a corporate misconduct trial or how to get through the BPTC Course.

Key Features:
• Pay attention to practical abilities, since this book highlights the top five skills needed to succeed in the legal field.
• Using a timeline approach (from high school to new employee) to provide information more methodically and effectively, as well as in a narrative rather than a "magazine" format.
• The majority of the information is from the industry, with real people, real content, and real tips to help you advance your career.
