    Any law students here planning to not become a barrister/solicitor? If so what would you like to do? I heard it's a good base upon which too add master degrees such as media, management, etc. So what post-grad degrees are you law students gonna take if you ain't gonna do LPC or BVCs? And is it difficult to find a job with just a LLB law degree by itself?

    I've got a law degree and I'm not planning on becoming a lawyer. One thing that you have to realise before you start a law degree is that law is quite a boring subject and lawyers get paid pretty average wages. Sure, the very best lawyers earn loads, but the very best in any field will earn a lot of money.

    The advantage of a law degree, though, is that it is highly regarded by employers. However, you really have to make sure that you get a 2.1 or better because most graduate entry schemes won't even look at your degree unless you get this level.

    Any questions about law just ask.

    Cool, and thanks a lot. So what are you doing with your law degree or what job are you planning to get?
