Congratulations, you've earned your law degree!
After years of hard work, late-night study sessions, and endless exams, you've reached a significant milestone in your academic journey. However, if you find yourself standing at a crossroads, unsure of where to go next, you're not alone. Many recent graduates encounter the same dilemma – what's the next step after University?
Perhaps you have decided that becoming a Barrister or a Solicitor isn’t the right path for you, or maybe you’re struggling to secure a training contract and you need to consider alternate careers. People often forget that the legal field is vast and multifaceted, offering an array of opportunities beyond the traditional path of practicing law in a law firm or courtroom.
To help graduates make informed decisions about their future, DMJ offers Governance Insight Days—an invaluable opportunity to learn more about a career in corporate governance, and to meet experienced professionals in the field who can give you an insight of what this career path entails.
