Law

The BA (Hons) Human Resource Management (HRM) and Law degree aims to provide students with knowledge and understanding of law and the legal aspects of human resource management and human resource theories and their strategic applications to firms and organisations operating within a changing global environment. Through the use of a wide range of concepts, approaches and learning techniques the course intends to equip students with a range of personal and intellectual skills in preparation for a career in human resource management with additional legal knowledge to enhance their abilities within this chosen area of employment.

Students will acquire both people management and legally-focused skills which will be attractive to employers at a local, national and international level. Students will gain the ability to act independently in planning and managing tasks using resources to retrieve and evaluate information; and to apply the findings of such work to the solution of human resource management and legal problems.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject is much more common at postgraduate level, and so be aware that many of the good jobs in HR and personnel management go to graduates with Masters or other postgraduate qualifications in this subject. Work experience for first degree graduates can help to get around the lack of postgraduate qualifications, but if you want to go into management you might find that Masters to be an advantage. Although human resource roles are much the most common outcome for graduates from these courses, they take those jobs in an impressive array of industries so there are plenty of options for the kind of employer you can work for. If you would like to know about graduate prospects for your chosen course more specifically, head to an open day to talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.

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.
