This chapter discusses the valuable, marketable features of a law degree, before moving on to consider particular career pathways. It discusses traditional legal pathways — towards a career as a solicitor, barrister or legal executive. It considers other career pathways that have little to do with the law on a day-to-day basis, but welcome law graduates because of the skills they offer. The chapter also looks at the opportunities for, and merits of, further study. A book of this nature cannot cover absolutely everything, nor tell you everything you need to do on any particular path. But it highlights the breadth of possibilities open to you as a successful law student, and gives you some things to consider as you contemplate options and head on to a career pathway.
