Discover different types of roles in law
The College of Law’s New Law Careers virtual experience program is designed to give you an understanding of the many different roles and careers available in the law. The ecosystem is rapidly evolving and there are many opportunities to combine your interest and qualifications in the law or align with your interests and skills outside the law with a role in a law firm, legal department, government, alternative legal service provider or the community legal sector. This program is your opportunity to try out a task in up to five different roles and pick up some new skills along the way.
This program was created by the College of Law (COL) and the tasks have been drawn from five different new law careers – data analyst, knowledge manager, legal operations professional, legal technologist or mediator – providing insights into what you might do in each of these roles. Kickstart your new law career journey today by joining the discussion with the amazing panellists in the video below.
This program is self-paced. It takes approximately 5-7.5 hours to complete.
