How Much do Employers Look at Your Honour Class Choices? watch

    • Thread Starter


    This might be a question with a really obvious answer but I've just been thinking about it.

    Say you wanted to apply for a firm with a large IP basis, you've done intellectual property law at the pass degree level but did not do the class at honours - how much would this effect their decision?

    Would doing honour's classes that are connected make a difference? Say if you were applying at an IP firm choosing to do computer law at honours.

    Also I've heard people talk about certain honour classes that are 'safe' and employers typically like - for example EU Law, Constitution law etc. Is this really true?

    That question is quite vague and subjective to individual firms/chambers. With regard to IP, which you mention, some firms require a STEM background, which may be something to consider.
