    Hey all, so i'm going to attend uni later this year to do an LLB in Law and was wondering whether this was possible.

    While i'm deadset on a legal education, other fields such as IB really interests me and I would like to keep my options open if possible. I've checked out some linkedin profiles of fellow LLBers at my uni and some of them managed to get into IB.

    I get that tons of the work basically revolves around excel but apart from that, how can one improve their position to break into IB with a law degree?

    work out which division you're interested in then bring your application in line with everyone else who is applying to that division, degree is irrelevant

    Yes, banks don't really care what degree you have. They want smart people.

    Do some research into the industry:
    Mergers and Inquisitions, the Unofficial Guide to Banking, TargetCareers - Banking, AllAboutFinanceCareers and the Investment Banking Guide by Vault, Wall Street Oasis - FAQ, How to get a spring week

    As for improving: boost your CV with a level insight days, extra curricular involvement (preferably in a leadership position), networking with bankers, cold call/apply for internships or work experience programmes etc. Same as everyone else really.
