A law degree can provide the student with opportunities to put their knowledge of law and your legal skills into practice, and further develop skills that are key to legal practice. This is important if they want to pursue a career as a lawyer of course, but is of much wider value in developing specific skills to enhance employability more generally. This chapter explores the important legal skills-related extracurricular activities that are commonly available, considering the value of these programmes to the successful law student. It explains how these activities can further develop skills such as analysis and critical thinking, while also developing transferable skills such as professionalism, teamwork, presentation, and timeliness.
