‘WestlawNext’ App Opens a World of Legal Research Options
Not too many people would claim that pursuing a career in the legal profession is easy. In fact, it is often cited as one of the most demanding industries to work in, thanks to the many years of college required to enter the field of law, along with the stipulation that you must pass the bar exam to practice. And if you want to be accepted into a prestigious firm you'll have to receive top marks in all the above. Sadly, the hard work doesn't end there. Once you've got a job you can look forward to massive overtime (60-80 hour work weeks) while you prove yourself and move up the chain to eventually secure a position as a partner. And when you've spent many years paying your dues you might even consider establishing your own firm. Whew, that sounds like a lot of work! Luckily, there are some resources out there that can make your job a bit easier, and the WestlawNext app could prove very useful indeed.
