Bristows’ Edward Bray talks about pursuing a career in law without a law degree
Bristows’ Edward Bray has been quoted by Lawyer 2B in its report on starting a career in law without a law degree, ‘Degrees of change: making the conversion to law’.
Making the transition from a non-law degree to a legal career is increasingly common. At most law firms, 50 per cent of trainees are non-law graduates and it is a similar story at the bar. Despite this, entering a complex and rapidly changing legal market from a non-law background can be daunting.
Lawyer 2B spoke to students, trainees, barristers and recruiters, including Bray, to find out why they made their career decisions and how to pursue a legal career as a non-law student.
