    The topic title says it all. I'm interested in the property field and I was wondering what opportunities there are out there for law graduates and whether I'd need to do some kind of course first.

    In Property. A lot of large commercial firms have Property departments where you could qualify into.

    That's interesting. Do they usually ask for specific modules and LPC?



    Also, anyone got any other suggestions? I was thinking Quantity surveying and I'm going to look into that now, but any others?

    For qauntity suverying you need a degree or professional qualification accredited by the Royal Institution for Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to qualify as a chartered quantity surveyor. Relevant subjects include: surveying construction civil engineering structural engineering.

    You should look at the rics site.

    If you went on to qualify as a solicitor then one of the standard departments is property, aside from domestic conveyancing if you chose the right firm you could get inbolved in planning, large scale commercial developments, litigation involving suing sirveyors and architects or disputes over the developments themselves.

    You would need to do the LPC which you must be aware of having doen a degree. Property was a standard module in my days, but there are likely to be specialised modules you could take depending on the course probider. not sure if they are crucial, but you would need to go to a firm who did the relevant sort fo work.Entry requirementsYou need a degree or professional qualification accredited by the Royal Institution for Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to qualify as a chartered quantity surveyor.
