    Regardless of your citizenship, a law degree will not help you get into scientific careers. Why didn't you do a STEM degree if they're your career goals.

    With a law degree, you could easily go into law, politics, public affairs, banking (provided you're numeracy skills are up to scratch), teaching, advertising, PR, and the media.

    Which careers have you been looking at? If you've been looking at STEM careers with a Law degree, it's not surprising you haven't had much success. Why not look at other sectors that align more with your degree?

    legal chambers, general office jobs, retail, administration, HR, PR, environmental and biotech law industries, teaching (which needs separate qualification and which means more money for tuition), media, translation, advertising. applied in these sects.

    Usually for translation you need officially recognised language qualifications. The others you could easily get into, provided during your time at university you got extra experience outside of academics

    got 9 months work experience and part time jobs. i know where i might be lacking but i dont know how to fix it being in the UK, because i dont have much time to fix it. the best i can do i keep working part time. i seriously dont want to go back. i could get in any jobs with the qualification but not here, maybe in bangladesh. but as i said, not looking to go back.

    Because they asked for careers other than STEM careers, suggesting OP had been looking at those careers originally

    Didnt you realise before you came to study that your visa was for being a student and not to come and work here? If you were an exceptional lawyer then maybe a law firm would take you on, but its extra hassle and they are required to show that they cant fill the position with someone else from the EU.Its competitive enough as it is.

    i aint exceptional, just that i might be able to get a job in bangladesh. and every student, anywhere, not just in the UK, would like to have at least 2 years work experience in the country they've studied.

    Suggesting he had been looking at said careers, had been unsuccessful, so was consequently looking at other options

    Doesnt say that to me at all. It suggests when he has been looking at jobs those are the areas that might consider employing him despite his non EU status.

    It would make a nonsense of him studying law 3 years ago.

    I meant to persuade a alw firm here to take you then you would have to be exceptional as it is so competitive. The other way is if you have contacts and cna use your language skills. If its a no return at any cost, then you might consider looking into whether any of the immigration firms might take you assuming you have additional language skills.
