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.

Adviser support via email

For a year after completing your course, you can continue to access personalised one-to-one support from one of our careers advisers. 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. Support is offered via email.

Surveys

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 and higher education and government agencies). Therefore, we may contact you after you have completed you studies to find out what you are doing.

The University of Law, like other UK universities, is required to participate in the Graduate Outcomes Survey. Graduate Outcomes is a national survey which gathers information about the activities and views of graduates approximately 15 months after they have finished their studies. For more information on this survey, please see Graduate Outcomes.

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