Non-law Careers for Law Students Event


This event is aimed at raising the awareness of a range of non-law career options for our law students. 

If you are a law student and you have found that practicing law is not your first option and you are considering a non-law related career, or you’d just like to know more about some alternatives career options, come along and find out about the types of options available to you and network with Northumbria University Law School alumni who have successfully developed careers outside of the legal profession.

Speakers will talk about their current roles, motivations for pursuing a non-law career, and how they embarked on making this a reality.  Additionally, some speakers will also raise awareness of roles with their organisation and what they look for in graduates through the recruitment process.  Following the talks there will be an opportunity to network with the speakers to ask questions and learn more from our attending alumni.

Currently, the range of speakers attending include professionals working in Law Enforcement, Teaching, Recruitment and Banking.
