Legal students stay at College to enhance careers
When embarking on a post graduate qualification, are any careers recession proof? It seems that enrolments to postgraduate law courses are at an all time high. King's College London closed applications to its LLM having reached its maximum intake. The University of Huddersfield has launched a new suite of law MAs this month and Leeds University has strong interest in European and cyber law.
An over-supply of law graduates has left many struggling to find pupillages in barristers' chambers or junior vacancies with firms of solicitors, so some students take a Masters to make them stronger applicants. Mature students make up a high proportion of students on many of the courses, many of these may be practising solicitors wishing to specialise in a specific area.
Overseas lawyers enrol on the King's Masters to boost their CVs or as a preliminary to qualifying in this country.
