Whilst it may seem logical that law graduates would pursue a legal career, for many students this is not the case. 2017 data from the Higher Education Careers Services Unit (HECSU) shows that only 33.8% pursued careers in legal, social and welfare profession roles after graduation. It was shown that 30.8% of graduates continued into further study, and 12.3% progressed on to clerical, secretarial and numerical clerk occupations.
Beyond Law is designed to acknowledge these statistics and provide career advice and informational opportunities for law students interested in a non-legal career, or perhaps those are on the fence about whether a legal or non-legal career is right for them.
We want to make the careers aspect of the law department much more inclusive and ensure that everyone is catered for. We believe that it is important to be fully informed about your potential.
You can expect to see guest speakers and skills workshops, as well as regular updates on our Facebook page pointing you towards career ideas and useful job search websites.
