We have a new guide in called Launchpad to Law 2009: A career in law with your degree, by LawCareers.net in association with The Law Society.
It is written for students in non-law subject areas who are considering a career in law. The guide begins with an introduction to what lawyers do, timelines for applications and descriptions of courses. However the bulk of the guide is devoted to profiles of lawyers who graduated from a range of subjects, from archaeology to zoology. This will give you an idea of where you fit in, which skills from your course are useful in law and worth promoting in your application, as well as hopefully convincing you that non-law graduates are perfectly welcome in law.
I would also definitely recommend having a good look around the http://www.lawcareers.net/ website as it is full of useful information including:
- Vacation scheme deadlines for solicitors
- Diary of training contract deadlines for solicitors
- Pupillage search for barristers
- Immediate vacancies
