Law

Combining Law with Creative Media writing in a Qualifying Law Degree enables you to develop a range of expertise and skills relevant to today’s digital publishing world. It encourages the development of key Creative Media skills that will be useful for careers in both the legal sector and the media industry. Students who wish to obtain a Creative Media Writing Skills degree will have the advantage of an interdisciplinary degree thanks to the Law element. The Law side of the degree will focus on all of the main Qualifying Law Degree subjects, so that the degree will be recognised as a Qualifying Law Degree by the professional bodies in England & Wales: the Law Society and the Bar. The Creative Media Writing side of the degree will help you to develop an entirely complementary skills set through the study of topics such as screen writing, digital communication, publishing and the craft of storytelling. In addition, the interdisciplinary element of this degree offers excellent preparation for future professional exams for legal and allied professions, and in some cases, can lead to professional exemptions. The skills that you will pick up from your studies within the School of Creative Studies and Media will help you to develop your written communication skills, which will complement the communication of the written research work that you will undertake as part of your Law modules. Students have the opportunity to enhance their degree programme and extend their understanding of their degree subject area by spending a period of study at an overseas host Institution. This route is optional and if you choose to follow it, you will extend your period of study from three years to four and will gain an enhanced degree qualification – LLB Law with Creative Media Writing (International Experience). You will need to pass a specified number of credits during their year abroad but no credits from that year will feed into their degree.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The jobs market for this subject - which includes creative writing and scriptwriting courses - is not currently one of the strongest, so unemployment rates are currently looking quite high overall, with salaries on the lower side. But nevertheless, most graduates get jobs quickly. Graduates often go into careers as authors and writers and are also found in other roles where the ability to write well is prized, such as journalism, translation, teaching and advertising and in web content. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common is common in the arts, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers', having several part-time jobs or commissions at once - although graduates from this subject were a little more likely than many other creative arts graduates to be in conventional full time permanent contracts, so that might be worth bearing in mind.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
