The opportunities in the international legal field are endless with your law degree. You could become a contract manager, privacy officer, trade policy analyst, researching trade-related policy at the OECD in Paris or become legal advisor in European and international organisations. You will be a step ahead in job interviews and an asset to any organisation or company having spent four years perfecting your legal skills.
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’.
|What will you become|
You should note that some universities in the Netherlands require you to follow a pre-masters course after graduating from THUAS. There are exceptions, such as Maastricht University, but students will have to complete an entry test first.
