What they forgot to tell you in TV shows

What they forgot to tell you in TV shows

By Sylvie Alston

Legal Services Training Programs 

Four things newly admitted solicitors should know when starting out! Television shows frequently attempt to glamorise the role of young lawyers, but few identify the real issues young lawyers face once they have been admitted. Whether you’ve secured a job or not, the LIV Young Lawyers (YL) recognises that newly admitted solicitors often feel pressure to know all the answers. If we study the characters in The Good Wife, SuitsorLaw & Order, certain red flags are raised. It’s not hard to see that what many of the solicitors in these shows do for their clients can be questionable, unethical or even contravene certain laws.
