ULaw survey reveals law students confident in career prospects
A survey by the University of Law has revealed that law students are becoming increasingly confident in their career prospects and in a recovery in the UK economy in the near future.
The annual survey carried out by the University of Law together with The Times newspaper has revealed that over 90% of law students are confident that an economic recovery is just around the corner. And interestingly 14% of those asked said that the current economic uncertainty had positively influenced their decision to study law.
The survey asked for students’ views on the legal profession and careers, higher education changes and tuition fees, politics and the economy, and it was sent out in September to all students on the University of Law’s Graduate Diploma in Law, Legal Practice Course, Bar Professional Training Course, and its LLB undergraduate law degree.
President of The University of Law, Professor Nigel Savage, says, “The students have clearly put a lot of thought into why they want a career in law. They show commitment to the profession and are well aware of the practical steps they need to take in order to achieve success. At the same time their confidence in their career prospects as well as in the economy as a whole is growing. Students are clearly switched on to the increasing globalisation of the legal services market and the overseas career opportunities that this offers.”
