A law degree helps you acquire a unique set of skills from quickly analysing and synthesising vast amounts of written documents, caselaw and journal articles, as well as being able to critically analyse them and reduce them down to key points which you can explain to a non expert.
Many law graduates go on to become lawyers. Being a lawyer is wider than just Solicitor, Barrister, paralegal or CILEx. There are many exciting roles developing within the legal industry using legal knowledge and skills, such as legal technologist or professional support lawyer. Many businesses recruit law graduates as well as law firms.
Your education at Keele gives you opportunities to explore the different skills and knowledge areas within a safe environment. This can be through our Skills Competitions, (both internal and external) as well as through debates in class, presentations of research or CLOCK or Legal Advice Clinic work. Although the activities below are tailored towards the legal profession they are very valuable in other sectors too and enhance your understanding of the subjects you are studying.
