Careers and your future in Law

Brunel Law School students are seen as valuable employees for businesses around the world, with 95% of our graduates in employment or further study six months after leaving.

Many Brunel Law School students start their course knowing that they want to progress into the legal profession, and do. However, studying law can also offer a firm foundation for success in the corporate world, government, or international relations.
