    Hey,

    I am doing my Law Degree at the mo and have been thinking about my future..
    My fiancee and I are getting married next year after I graduate. Originally i wanted to go on to do the LPC/BVC and qualify as a solicitor/barrister.
    However, now i am a little older, my fiancee and I have been discussing how we would love to have children yet we are wondering if it will be possible if i am in the legal professsion. We do not want our children to be brought up by nannys/child minders etc....so, what i am asking is; is there such thing as a part time lawyer? Do firms give you the opportunity to work 2/3 days per week? Or is this just unrealistic. If not, what other careers/jobs are there which would give a mother flexibility to work part time?

    Thanks!

    Have you considered going into the academic side of law - doing research and lecturing in a particular area? It might be worth looking in to, I suppose it might generally be expected that you would practice law before lecturing, but I know at my uni there are a couple of very young law tutors, who presumably haven't practiced law - or if they have, not for very long!
