Careers in Law without being a lawyer?

Announcements Posted on
  1. Offline

    I'm finishing my degree in sociology and i was thinking to do a masters in international/human right/immigration law.
    What could i do with this? I don't really want to become a lawyer, as i'd be much to nervous to represent my clients in a courtroom!

    Anything else? Maybe immigratin advisor/working for a charity?

    What am i looking at in terms of starting salaries though?

    Well if you're a solicitor, you'd prepare the cases, not stand up in court. A barrister does that. But you could look at charities, and the Citizens Advice Bureau?
