Hi so basically I have always wanted to be a lawyer and go into finance dealing with mergers and making clients money and doing "lawyer" things. I felt like to get a good knowledge of finance I should study finance and accounting. Knowing how to audit and book keep is always helpful. I basically want to know what jobs there are that would combine legal and finance. Does anyone actually do law after finance and accounting degree? I know that after the degree you should do ACA exams to qualify for chartered. Are there exams like that for law. Also how long would it take if its possible. Having a good finance background and then going into law specialising in things like mergers and making sure contracts are beneficial to clients, and things like that really interest me. Just trying to find my perfect job

Think you're trying to mix two different jobs in to one to be honest. Both accountants and lawyers work on mergers, but they will be different people from different firms with different specialisms.

That's not to say you can't do one and then try and do the other afterwards, but I'm not sure there is much logic/benefit in that.

How about corporate law? That sounds similar as an area to look into.

Law has to be the most stressful and boring subject in the world... So my sister tells me.

Thanks for the reply. Okay so that makes sense. Can you maybe then explain to me the different roles accountants and lawyers play when dealing with mergers acquisitions? What kind of things do they do day to day?

Tax advisors do a mix of legal and financial work, in case that really is what floats your boat.

The meat and bones of it can be boring, but application is really fun, if your into debating that is.
