Law Careers Service

The Careers Service takes a personalised approach to professional development which will help you put your legal skills into practice for career success. Whether you are looking for a training contract, pupillage, or another career in the legal profession, we will support you to achieve your goals.

Our dedicated Law Careers Advisor will ease your transition from student to confident legal professional. While studying at Roehampton Law School, you will meet one-to-one with our careers adviser to identify and develop your strengths and you will create a realistic career plan that evolves with your interests.

You will be introduced to our established networks such as with legal graduate recruiters. You will receive practical advice and participate in tailored workshops to ensure you target the right firms and chambers for your legal career and submit outstanding job applications.
