This chapter discusses the many different career options open to law graduates in light of the skills and attributes cultivated by legal study. It discusses traditional legal pathways (solicitor, barrister, legal executive) and other career pathways both within the law and those that do not involve the law directly but welcome graduates with a law degree because of the skills they offer. The chapter also looks at the opportunities for, and merits of, further postgraduate study. The chapter highlights the breadth of possibilities open to the successful law student, and highlights things to consider when contemplating different career pathways and options.
