Lord Neuberger describes the role of a judge and his career path. It’s very encouraging to know that even a judge as respected as Lord Neuberger didn’t know exactly what he wanted to do at university. Even two years after he didn’t know he wanted a career in law. Once he knew he wanted a career in law he didn’t just easily waltz into the profession either.
It took hard work, persistence and determination.
I’m sure many of you are in a similar position. You don’t know exactly what to do with your career and are maybe feeling a little lost. Or maybe you know exactly what you want to do but aren’t there yet. Give the video a watch – things in your life can turn around so quickly.
Bangor Law School have given us permission to use some of their graduate profiles. We think this is useful in order to see the paths others have taken to get into the legal profession and the wide range of career options open to law graduates. Visit the Bangor University website to see the rest of the profiles. We will hopefully be adding to this page in the future with further graduate profiles from a range of universities. If you would like to contribute a profile please contact us.
David Darlington, LLB Law with Accounting and Finance
“After leaving Bangor Law School I studied the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, Chester. I was recently admitted as a Solicitor after completing my training contract with Stephensons Solicitors LLP, “a UK top 100 law firm, one of the largest, fastest growing and most successful solicitors in the north west” (Legal 500). I have been kept on with the firm and I am now working as a Criminal Solicitor. I am also fully accredited for the Police Station and I am on the firms’ 24 hour rota.
I would like to thank Bangor Law School for all the support that I received during my degree as I wouldn’t be where I am now without it.”
Tristan Koriya, LLB Law with Business Studies (2008 graduate)
“After completing an LLB in Law with Business Studies at Bangor Law School, I worked for the Cabinet Office as Acting Head of Communications for the Government I.T Profession. In 2009 I completed the Legal Practice Course at the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice before being appointed Head of Law at Roade Sports College in Northamptonshire. I also worked for Her Majesty’s Courts Service and the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) prior to finishing my studies.
“I am currently doing a 2-year training contract with Wilson Browne Solicitors and Qualify next year hopefully! I strongly believe that without the support and guidance of the staff at Bangor Law School I simply would not have been able to secure such a good btraining contract.”
