Legal Services (including patents)

Law is a popular graduate career choice and is open to both law and non law students. To become a practising lawyer in the UK the main options are the Barrister or Solicitor route. There are also related professions including Legal Executives (qualified support staff), and Trade Mark Attorneys and Patent Attorneys who deal with intellectual property rights. Whilst strong academics are needed to succeed in law, making the most of your time at Warwick through extra-curricular activities and paid employment as well as gaining relevant work experience particularly in your penultimate year will all enhance your chances. Patent attorneys need a science degree, English language skills and a working knowledge of French and German.
