• Employability support for Alumni

  • Your Employability support does not end after your course finishes; former University of Law students continue to have access to a range of services.

    Access to hundreds of vacancies every month on JobSearch, our vacancy database

    JobSearch is available to all former students. Every month, we advertise hundreds of vacancies including paralegal roles and training opportunities. Make sure your email alert preferences are set to continue to receive notification of new vacancies.

We can help with any issues including CV or application guidance, interview preparation, or career direction, whether you are following a legal-related or non-law career.

    The Employability Service and the University are interested in what our students go on to do after graduation, as are many others: prospective students, current students, parents, higher education and government agencies. Therefore, you are likely to be contacted by us and asked to complete one of our destinations surveys. For many students, this will be the national Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. You can find more information on this survey on our DLHE page. Alternatively, you may be asked to provide information about your employment as part of our own survey of recent graduates.  

    You can find information about data protection and how we handle your information on the University’s policy pages.
