Careers in Law

Virtually every institution of significance operating in the economy today, whether it is public or private, national or international, employs legally qualified staff at various levels and in several capacities. Some of these employees may think of themselves as business people, politicians, or government officials rather than lawyers. The fact remains, however, that the LLB degree provided the broad gateway leading to their particular specialisation.
