Why choose a career in law?

Some key core modules you will participate in are Biodiversity and International Law, Commercial Conflicts of Law, EU Defense Law, European Law of Human Rights, Governance of The EU as well as many more such as International Human Rights, International Refugee Law and Public Procurement Law.
All these topics and the rest will be covered during the year and you will be required to do much coursework and also write many dissertations of various lengths.
As you can see even the most basic law course can be pretty tough and takes a lot of commitment from the student, so before entering into a career choice the student should ensure that law is right for them.

So you may again ask yourself why would I put myself through all that? The answer to this is simple!
When you have completed all of your training and work experience you will find that practicing law and working within it is one of the most rewarding careers in the world both financially and personally.
