Career opportunities: Studying law as part of a two-subject degree does not provide exemption from the first stage of training for those seeking to qualify as a solicitor or barrister. The professional bodies may grant partial exemption if the correct number of modules and the necessary subjects are studied. Although of value to anyone seeking to pursue a career within the legal profession, this course is particularly relevant to careers in the National Probation Service, Police Service, Prison Service, Youth Justice, the Home Office, scenes of crime work, the courts, social policy and social work.
