Interested in a career in law?
If you are interested in pursuing a career in law there is a range of support available to you from both the Open University and The University of Law.
Careers support from the Future Lawyers Network
As an Open University student, you are welcome to join The University of Law’s Future Lawyers Network. In addition to blogs, news, discussion forums and webinars, it contains The University of Law Employability Service’s Student Employability Programme (StEP), which provides detailed advice, online workshops and activities covering the key steps towards a legal career. Steps 1-3 are open to anyone, while the remaining steps (4-10) are free to those who join the Network. You can join the Network whether or not you intend to study The University of Law’s LL.M Legal Practice Course (for those wanting to become solicitors) or Bar Professional Training Course (for those wanting to become barristers).
The links below contain ‘In-Brief’ summaries which provide the key information from each of the 10 Steps.
In addition to the 10 Steps, you can access information on legal practice areas and case studies from the Future Lawyers Network site.
For more information on the careers support available to you, read our Outline of Careers Advisory Services for OU Law students.
