Law School Careers Events
The Law School organises a number of tailored careers events for its students during their studies.
- Alumni Speakers
- Careers Events
Such events allow you to learn about the career experiences of Alumni, but also to establish important connections and relationships with those in the working world.
We believe it is important that all our events offer advice and information about life after study that is relevant to you and your aspirations. We therefore ask what you feel is important and tailor each event to your specific needs.
Data on the destinations of Warwick Law graduates (2009) shows that almost half had gone into further study, with the majority choosing to start the LPC (Legal Practice Course) to become a solicitor. A significant number also went on to the BPTC (Bar Professional Training Course) to become a barrister.
However, not all Warwick Law students enter the legal profession; law is seen by many students as a good foundation for careers in a variety of fields. Some have chosen to enter the social area of law and pursue careers within international organisations such as the United Nations; others choose national or international non-government organisations, including charities. Others have chosen careers in accountancy, banking and the public service in the UK or the EU.
Warwick students have just been declared as the most-often targeted by Britain's top graduate employers, in the 2017 annual rankings published by High Fliers Research.
