Some students see a law degree as a route to professional practice while others choose not to practise law – a law degree is a suitable education for a wide variety of careers because of its intellectually demanding nature.
As an Oxford Brookes law graduate you will be confident in communicating legal knowledge and you will have the techniques of research, analysis and articulation that are transferable to postgraduate study and to a wide range of careers. Whether you choose a career in publishing, government, the armed forces or management positions in industry, your law degree will open many doors.
