Law and Public Service

Careers in law and public service include lawyers, civil servants, law enforcement workers, people working in government, and careers in the armed forces. Jobs in civil service and law are diverse in their daily responsibilities, but all careers in the civil service sector shares a common goal: protecting and serving one’s fellow citizens.

The types of careers available in law and public service are so diverse, that it’s possible to group them into three categories:

2. Government and civil service jobs include public safety workers, firefighters, government employees, public utility workers, and elected politicians.

3. Jobs in law and justice include judges, lawyers, paralegals, and other legal workers.
