Experience is key to bigger things


Having been a solicitor for five years now, sometimes I feel more like a salesperson than a lawyer. It’s so hard to break through and I’m stuck in a tiny local law firm. Most of the cases I deal with are either matrimony or property deals which are not very exciting. I’m not naive enough to think I could get a job at one of the Big Five, but working at one of the largest 25 here would make more sense. Should I get a PCLL or LLM at a local university?
