Where could a career in law take you?
Your career trajectory post qualification will likely see you working as an associate, a senior associate and then as a partner, in a specific business area such as company, competition, contract, employment, intellectual property, energy, property, procurement or the sales of goods/services.
The opportunities in commercial law once you have completed your training are vast. You might sidestep into a business in a regional or general counsel (chief legal officer) role, or you might move out of law completely into a more management and solely business focused role.
