Career choices in Law

Solicitors, lawyers, and barristers are well-known choices for a career with a law degree. Some of our graduates choose other, equally fulfilling pathways: They shape a just society as policymakers, in the civil service, as academics, entrepreneurs, journalists, or in the not-for-profit sector and non-governmental organisations. These alternative careers can also be pursued following qualification as a practising lawyer.

I had never set out to become an entrepreneur, I had always wanted to become a solicitor.
