Non-legal career options for law graduates

A degree in law not only prepares you for a career in law, but equips you with a range of transferable skills that will enable you to enter a number of professions. Many of our graduates go on to become solicitors or barristers, while others pursue other law related careers both in private, public and voluntary sector organisations. Others use the skills they have developed to go into areas such as journalism, insurance and accountancy.

Law courses are one of the top 12 degree subjects for getting a job according to a recent article in the Telegraph, with 88.6 per cent of graduates nationwide going into work or further study within six months of finishing their degrees.

The range of skills that a law degree provides include:

  • Problem solving skills
  • Research skills
  • Personal skills, including confidence and effective communication
  • Ability to interpret and analyse complex information
