Hi Carlo,

To be honest, the career prospective is not completely depend on your university degree, but what you can get from the very program.

It is a mistake to think of a law degree merely as a narrow route to a legal profession. On the contrary, a law degree opens up a wide range of possible careers.

A majority of law graduates do indeed go on to qualify as solicitors or barristers. This requires one years further training in the form of either the Legal Practice Course for intending solicitors, or the Bar Professional Training Course for intending barristers plus, in both cases, professional on-the-job training.

Once qualified, a solicitor or barrister may choose to enter into either a private practice or employment with such entities as the civil service, large companies or local authorities. For those who do not choose one of the legal professions, a law degree is a particularly valuable qualification that is highly respected by a range of employers.

Employers know that a law graduate has acquired a variety of useful skills including a capacity for logical and critical thought, the accurate use of language, communication skills and the ability to make a persuasive argument. Thus, our graduates are to be found pursuing a wide variety of careers.

In the meantime, a significant number of law graduates are recruited by accountancy firms. Others go into management, insurance, banking, teaching, public relations, the civil service and the armed forces.

Less well-travelled paths chosen by our graduates include the theatre, the representative of a farmers union and a commercial pilot.

Given the breadth of opportunities available to them, it is not surprising that unemployment among law graduates is among the lowest of all degree programmes.
