Studying law requires unwavering commitment similar to a full-time job, with all of the exams and essays to complete. But it’s important to already start considering your career opportunities early on. This can help you select what you want to focus on in your studies.
In this episode of Wolf Theiss Soundshot, our hope is to help support law students take a look at all of the options available to them in their future career paths, especially for those who are looking at alternative career paths.
Our Wolf Theiss speakers Maria Antonia Reis Teixeira Da Costa, Learning Coordinator, Fiona Altmann, Recruiting Manager, and Maryam Ziaran, Social Media Manager, all share one thing in common: they all studied law. Similarly, while their current roles have strong legal components, they are currently pursuing alternative career paths, different from the more traditional path of becoming lawyers.
In this episode, they discuss why they studied law and how this field of study aids them in their current positions. Perhaps more importantly, they provide tips for law students wanting to explore less traditional career paths, demonstrating how you can leverage your legal background for a multitude of other disciplines.
Key takeaway: one of the best ways to explore your future career options are by seizing the opportunities around you, seeing what’s out there, and what’s a good fit for you.
