Career Opportunities

Many students graduating from the Law program offered by Dublin Institute Of Technology pursue a career as a solicitor or a barrister but the professions are not the only option for law graduates. The analytical and problems solving skills developed in a law degree are valuable in a range of businesses. Law graduates also find employment in the civil and public service and in the NGO sector where their legal knowledge and critical thinking skills are particularly useful.

What will I Study?  

Certain subjects are considered essential to the study of law, such as Contact Law, Property Law, Criminal Law and European Union law. Students build up a base of knowledge in these core areas as well as following their own interests through specialised topics. Dublin Institute of Technology has a strong emphasis on areas of law that have recently undergone significant change. We offer optional modules such as Criminology, Intellectual Property and Media Law, Prison Law and the Law and Society Research Clinic, where students engage in research for the benefit of an NGO.

In studying law at Dublin Institute of Technology you will develop skills of analysis, research and communication. Your capacity for problem-solving will become well-honed. You will gain an appreciation of the complex relationship between law and society and how law can both help and hinder the resolution of social problems. You can examine the operation of the criminal justice system, consider how law should respond to new technologies or carry out research for an NGO on real-world problems. You will develop your capacity for critical analysis and become a self-directed learner. You will be able to make and evaluate arguments and take a logical and practical approach to solving complex problems.
