If you decide not to practise law, your law degree can still come in handy for a wide range of careers including:

  • Diplomacy/foreign affairs
  • Investment Banking
  • Journalism
  • Politics
  • Public Policy
  • Research

Many law schools offer combined law degrees, allowing you to combine law with degrees such as commerce, science, engineering, arts, international studies, computer science and more. This other degree could be your back-up plan if you decide not to pursue a legal career. Combining two fields of study can also allow you to combine your skills to whatever discipline you pursue.
