Be at the centre of influence

Did you know? Many careers that start in law end up working within the governance and company secretarial space as more people become aware of the duties and how your studies overlap.

As a recent graduate in law, you can easily pursue a career in company secretarial role, giving you access to the boardroom where you can use your knowledge to guide the chairman and board.

Use your law degree to be more strategic in your career

You can become a chartered secretary and get international recognition for your role. With a background in law, you are automatically exempt from two modules of the Chartered Secretaries Qualifying Scheme (CSQS). Many companies offer to put you through CSQS, where you can apply your knowledge with practical in-house experience.
