Hi!

Besides the obvious career paths you can take with a law degree (solicitor, barrister etc) what else can I do with a law degree?
I'm in my final year of university so want to start applying for jobs but I don't really know what else I can apply for?

I've just looked online and apparently I can work as a chartered accountant, but does anyone know what the requirements are? as I don't have any kind of accounting experience

Thank you so much!
I actually had a look at the same list on the prospects website, and quite interested in the chartered accountant career, but I don’t really know how to get there 😫
I just feel like my degree in law isn’t sufficient to become a chartered accountant and perhaps I need some experience in the field? But I don’t really know where to volunteer....

You need no experience in accounting to be an accountant, the big 4 firms take people with and without accounting degrees for training contracts. You probably need to be good with numbers to pass the application tests but that’s more logic than say trigonometry.
