Information and resources to help you plan your career:
Careers Conversation ForumUTS:Law will be holding four interactive careers seminars where students can hear from and talk to professionals from the Bar, the community and government sectors, professional services and mid-tier/boutique firms. Our aim is to invite UTS graduates - ranging from recently graduated to long-established in their career - who will speak about how they got started, the challenges they faced finding their place after university, paths they explored, what they like about their career and tips for newly-graduated students.
The events themselves will be kept small and intimate to provide for a casual, conversational atmosphere and dialogue between the students and professionals. Registrations are essential so check out the Events listing on the UTS:Law website regularly for dates.
Graduate attributesIncreasingly, what employers both local and international look for is strong knowledge of the foundations of the common law legal method, immersion in doctrines, an appreciation of the social and moral context in which law operates and a strong set of generic skills.
In consultation with the legal profession and other community links, the UTS Bachelor of Laws is embedded with graduate attributes to get you work-ready and professionally skilled.
Graduate attributes are embedded into all core law subjects, so not only will you learn the law, you’ll also learn and practise necessary professional skills such as oral presentations, teamwork and understanding ethical implications of different courses of action.
