This career involves working with people in a caring capacity. If you have no interest in helping people personally or educationally then this may be the wrong profession for you.

Empathy, patience and respect are important qualities for this job, in addition to be able to relate well to the person you are dealing with. As there is also a large amount of information to be handled in the job, good organisational, IT and time management skills are also quite important.

Career Progression header image

Graduates have the opportunity to add value for both employers and themselves on a daily basis. They can test theories, apply concepts and undertake practical project work. Many will pursue a professional legal qualification either as solicitors (Law Society) or barristers (Kings Inns). Others may wish to professionally qualify outside the jurisdiction in England & Wales or indeed the US. 

Graduates may also pursue Legal Executive qualifications through the Institute of Legal Executives. Students wishing to pursue further qualifications can proceed to postgraduate programmes up to Masters Level or beyond. Regardless of students’ career choices, students’ legal training is certain to provide prospective employers or institutions of further study with a solid platform from which to recruit.
