Employees work in return for payment, which may be in the form of an hourly wage, by piecework or an annual salary, depending on the type of work an employee does or which sector she or he is working in.

Selling alcohol is forbidden in Islam. There are cases, especially in non-Muslim countries, where a Muslim is compelled to work in a place selling haram items. In such case the person should commit him/herself to find a new job and he should ask Allah to change his situation towards a better way of life. 

With prayers for your success.

if a person find him/herself in a work environment with people of the opposite gender, because he/she doesn't find another job or any other reason, he/she should keep all the rules etiquettes that preserve his/her haya' and try to avoid extra-professional conversations. There is nothing wrong in sending greetings and work-related talk as long as they don't lead to haram consequences. Obviously one should strive also to be gentle, efficient and helpful in every circumstance. However "warm and friendly interactions" are not a necessity and should be avoided.

With prayers for your success.

Usually, supermarkets in non Muslim countries sell variety of items which are either allowed or Haraam. The money earned from selling the Haraam items is not permissible while money earned from selling Halal items is allowed. Try to know the ratio of it as much as you can.

You need to avoid using the Haram part of the money as much as you can.

Studying to become a lawyer is allowed as far as you support the victims and the justice. Those lawyers who aim only to gain money and support the wrongdoers through legal tricks are doing wrong and their income from the wrong is unlawful.

It depends on you how you want to be. Obviously, the person who believes in Allah and Day of Judgment will never support the wrong, because he will face the miserable consequences.

This applies to other professions like medicine, education, business, etc which can be used in right way by good people, and wrong way by wrong people.

We encourage good persons to study law to support the innocent people.

Wassalam.
