Building brilliant careers
At the University of Exeter, we aim to offer as many activities as possible to help broaden your career development and equip you with the skills employers find most valuable. These include employer visits, mooting, pro bono and skills sessions, which provide many opportunities to meet and interact with potential employers. In addition, the Bracton Law Society organises a variety of social events.
We benefit from a network of professional contacts locally, nationally and internationally who attend our annual Law Careers Fair. Our extensive alumni network is keen to offer mock interviews, mentoring and work placements to Exeter law students.
A Law degree from the University of Exeter will provide you with a wide range of skills suitable not only for a career as a solicitor or barrister, but also in the wider world of business including finance, administration and commerce. Skills such as assimilation of large amounts of material, commercial awareness, writing concise reports and problem solving, which you will develop during your degree, are vital to a range of graduate recruiters including those in government and general management.
