CAREERS

Graduating with a University of Wollongong Law degree provides students with potentially unlimited career opportunities, be it a legal career or a non-legal career. The UOW LSS Careers Portfolio aims to inform students of the various career opportunities available to law graduates and provides assistance with applications for internships, clerkships and graduate programs.

Throughout the year the Careers portfolio will provide a number of career initiatives and events to assist students in finding, applying for, and following career aspirations.

Among these events is the 2019 UOW LSS Careers Fair which will highlight a myriad of career opportunities available to UOW law students and graduates. In addition to the Careers Fair the UOW LSS Clerkship Support Scheme will prepare current students with resume building and skills workshops which transcend past Clerkship time and can assist with a variety of graduate positions.

The Careers portfolio will also work with the Publications portfolio to produce the annual Clerkship Guide, the Careers Guide and various other career related publications throughout the year.

For more information about programs under the Careers portfolio, contact Bethany McGhie at careers@uowlss.net.

Hi! I’m Bethany McGhie and I’m the 2019 UOWLSS VP for Careers. I’m a final year Bachelor of Laws student who is passionate about opening career opportunities for our students. My role this year is to help organise and set up various career opportunities alongside my Careers officers. I’ll be coordinating the careers fair, which I’m hoping will be the biggest one yet. I’ll also be organising the clerkship guide and clerkship resume writing workshop, as well as visits to law firms and public law industries. I can’t wait to showcase to employers the amazing talent we have here at UOW throughout 2019!
