I want to work with private clients - should I go into private client law or private banking
I'm looking to work with private clients and I'm unsure if I should pursue a career in law or banking - what are the advantages and disadvantages of both and how to become each one, also what is the pay like.

Thank you for your question.
To be honest, Jenna and Susan pretty much crushed it in terms of their responses so there's very little left to add.
What I'd consider if I was you is that there's a huge demand for attorneys with business expertise. There are also universities that offer advanced degrees that mix a law degree with an MBA. I completed my MBA in finance but, in retrospect, I would've given the extra mile and completed a Juris Doctor as well.
In terms of compensation, any one of the positions afforded to individuals with this educational background will be very well compensated. Initially, you'll need to break ground first and gain experience. However, as time progresses you'll continue to grow professionally as well as financially.
Hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck.
