Career Opportunity

Many of our graduates who have entered the legal professional are now in private practice or employed in such fields as industry, local government, or the Crown Prosecution Service. Of those who choose not to enter the legal profession, many have gone on to pursue higher degrees or enter other fields of employment such as personnel or management training programmes, the police, accountancy, teaching, local government and journalism.

We are particularly proud of our alumnus Grace Ononiwu OBE who is the Chief Crown Prosecutor for the West Midlands.
