At work

Can I become a lawyer or a judge after I graduate?

With a Bachelor of Law (LL.B.) you are fully equip to kick-start your career as a legal professional. However, in most countries, a bachelor’s degree alone will not make you eligible to enter the bar. If you want to become a lawyer (advocate, solicitor, barrister, etc.), usually extra country requirements will apply. In the Netherlands, for example, you will have to take a master’s degree in law and attain a so-called ‘civil effect’.
