Lawyers in Government

Understanding the work of government lawyers

Few areas of legal practice offer the variety and intellectual challenge than the work of government lawyers.

The government calls upon its lawyers to advise on any number of issues - complex, novel, politically sensitive and often in the public eye.

To carry out this work, the government needs its own lawyers and legal trainees who understand its business to provide legal services to a wide client base - including a range of central government departments and other government bodies.

This short film showcases the breadth of work government lawyers and legal trainees are involved in.

And you could be too.
