With the advancement of globalization and technological development, the competition in the legal industry is becoming increasingly fierce, and the demand for legal professionals is continuously rising. Undergraduate practical legal professionals serve as an important force in the legal industry, and the quality of their cultivation is directly related to the healthy development of the legal industry. However, in the current employment environment, the cultivation of legal professionals faces many difficulties, such as insufficient practical ability, incomplete knowledge system, and unclear career planning. To address these issues, it is necessary to thoroughly explore the difficulties and improvement strategies in the cultivation of legal professionals. Therefore, based on the ecological model, this paper deeply explores the difficulties in the cultivation of legal professionals under the current employment environment. Utilizing the ecological system theory, it reveals the existing problems from four aspects: individuals, classrooms, schools, and society, and proposes corresponding improvement strategies. The aim is to provide reference for optimizing the mechanism of legal professionals cultivation, improving education quality, adapting to the constantly changing market demands, and promoting comprehensive student development.
