I don't really know what you're on about. You can do anything you want that doesn't require a specific degree subject. Most law students don't end up becoming solicitors or barristers anyway so graduate recruiters in almost every field will have come across them (so it won't be unusual/weird to them). Most graduate jobs are open to people with degrees in any discipline.
I presume you're actually asking, in which fields/jobs would a law degree be an advantage over someone with another degree? The answer is there aren't many but Law is well respected and having legal knowledge could be a slight advantage in some roles but basically it's the degree classification that matters the most (i.e. at least a 2:1). The subject of Law will not really give you an edge. There may be one or two exceptions though (but the edge will still be small) so hopefully someone will be along in a minute to contribute more helpfully than I have.Last edited by Corporate Lawyer; 20-07-2017 at 20:59.

Pretty much anything that doesn't require a specific STEM degree/training.
The attached image gives you an indication where law graduates end up:
