I hope to specialise in aviation law
In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one soon-to-be trainee solicitor wants to know how they should go about moving into their preferred practice area of aviation law upon qualification.
“Hi. I’m due to start my training contract with a firm shortly, but they don’t have a practice area/sector specialism in a niche [aviation law] I would like to go into, but of course in this climate with a single training contract offer I would have been stupid to not accept it on this basis. I know I would thrive in this niche as it’s a hobby and a subject matter I’m very knowledgeable in already.
“Commercial law is a good foundation for the niche, so how difficult would it be to eventually try to move into it? How should I go about it, and when? Thanks.”
