Business and consulting firms are increasingly looking at law graduates for a variety of positions.

With strong analytical and problem-solving skills, law graduates are suited to a variety of roles within the industry.

Business also provides an exciting pathway for graduates who are interested in pursuing a non-law career with a diverse range of employment opportunities.

Large corporations also often have their own legal departments and an in-house counsel, so practising opportunities can also be found in the wider business sector. Many large corporations and firms have graduate programs, some specifically in their legal departments and others that offer general graduate roles open to JD students.

Previous Melbourne Law School (MLS) graduates have ventured into a diverse array of fields such as recruitment management, digital strategy consulting, risk advisory, and investment banking.
