There are a wide range of career opportunities available to law graduates. Generally a law degree prepares students for legal practice. At the same time, the degree offers an excellent foundation for many careers that covers both public and private sectors which include public service, business, academia, and community based legal organisations.

Graduates therefore could find themselves in legal careers as advocates and solicitors, magistrates or judges, registrars, or alternative dispute resolution providers, legal advisors or officers in banking and financial institutions, or in business as an in-house lawyer. In brief, a law degree that provides solid legal knowledge and advocacy skills can be applied by graduates to almost any occupation.
