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.
Students on the LLB Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law can spend a year working in law firms with solicitors and in the legal departments of commercial organisations or government departments.
Under the umbrella of Law Lives, you’ll build, develop and strengthen transferable skills and experiences through a range of activities and programmes such as Brunel’s Pro Bono Legal Advice Centre, which offers pro bono legal advice through various clinics in different areas of law.
Our graduates in recent years went on to pursue careers in range of high-profile organisations such as the Court of Appeal, Blake Morgan, CPS, Freshfields, Mishcon de Reya, the Home Office and Linklaters.
Our strong links with industry will help you to boost your career potential. Brunel is one of the few UK universities on the Blake Morgan Brand Ambassador Scheme – offering great work experience opportunities, mentoring programmes and giving you great exposure to the graduate recruitment team of a leading law firm.
After successful completion of the degree, you will be exempt from the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) Module 1 International Arbitration course and assessment and will be eligible to apply for MCIArb status.
With a 95%* employment rate, you’ll be sure to leave Brunel with a firm grounding in legal theory, allowing you to be flexible in your future choices.
