Career and Industry

A Law degree, especially when combined with another degree, such as Arts, Commerce, Management, Criminology or Science, is a qualification that offers unequalled career opportunities. As an alternative to practising as a barrister or solicitor, you may enter many areas of work including business and management roles in a wide range of organisations, government services, and industrial relations. You may find a role in research, public administration, diplomatic service, the media, legal aid, law reform or teaching either in schools or universities.
