Study International | April 29, 2019

Despite it’s reputation for being a challenging field of study, law remains a popular discipline among current and prospective students.We’re governed by the law – something that affects just about every aspect of our lives. The legal system is complex, and its application in the real-world isn’t always straightforward, giving rise to the need for highly-trained lawyers. Many of the world’s movers and shakers have studied law, including former US President Barack Obama, former Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto, British-Lebanese barrister Amal Clooney and former South African President Nelson Mandela, among many more.It’s not surprising, seeing that a career in the profession can lead to good employment prospects and great earning potential. Even for students who don’t go on to work in law after graduation, a degree in this subject will equip them with a unique range of skills that could be used across a range of careers, including academia, media and social work, among others. For aspiring lawyers, the US can hold a lot of appeal in the study of law, as it’s home to some of the world’s leading law schools.
