Hi all.

I just wish to enquire if anyone in the profession knows of lawyers who started out at around 28-29 years old or later. What are the chances of catching up with the people who started earlier?( around 24 years old for girls and 26 years old for guys)

Just wondering because now I am considering taking law as a postgraduate degree and I am wondering if it is worth the oppourtunity cost of 3-5 years( including time to be called to the bar).

I am not sure if doing law is worth it if my career progression rate will be similar as fresh grads (who did law as their first degree) as these people would have enjoyed a head start. For example, first degree law students at 28-29 would typically be at least senior associates while I would only be starting at the bottom of the legal profession ladder at that age.

Although in a minority, the legal profession boasts many examples of lawyers who changed careers at a later date, having started out in a different vocation. Meanwhile, some law firms are increasingly welcoming applications from mature candidates.
