I'm a girl, and I live in a country that is very looks-focused, but I am planning to go pursue Law in the UK. People often rate me as a 7/10 in my looks, and I am thin, but I am planning to get a nose job and some other procedures done before I head abroad for university.

How important are looks in advancing your career as a lawyer?

Would a degree in English law be applicable abroad anyway?
But to answer your question, no.

Smart, intelligent and determined are the biggest ones plus maybe well connected. Looks do you no harm, but it applies to life in general.

If you're a 7/10, I'd say that's considered very attractive anyway.

I suppose in corporate environments, there probably is a subconscious bias in favour of physically attractive people. But I wouldn't say you "have to be attractive" to succeed in law.

God help us all if success is all down to looks.. surely if you are a fantastic at the job itself, and build yourself a reputation, you will be successful.

Well if it is, then I'm screwed :rofl:

But no really, I've met a few lawyers at networking events and they're not all pretty. Though still competent and legally qualified all the same.

One of my sons' friends has got an offer from law school. He looks positively presidential. But we'll see what a good lawyer he will make.

Prepare your inbox for DMs.

No you don't need to be attractive. No doubt is a bonus and makes you more valuable, but it's all about being able to do the monotonous job of lawyering.

Somewhere like LA may be more looks focussed, but in the UK, I hope not

What? you mean Saddam Hussein?

Nah, he's an amazing person. He has just finished a degree in Physics. Entered a national inter uni mooting competition and beat all the law students.
