Law touches on almost every aspect of society including business, politics and human rights. It affects global trade and international relations as well as business, personal transactions and family relationships - so a degree in law is always relevant.
Study law, and you'll tackle the pressing ethical and legal issues facing society. A law degree is the first step to a career in the legal sector and can prepare you for further training as a barrister or solicitor.
The knowledge, experience and skills you'll learn will also prepare you for many other graduate jobs. With your law degree, you'll be ready to move into a variety of roles in insurance and banking, and into managerial positions across many other industries.
