About

Welcome to Derby Law School’s Careers and Employability page. 

Thinking about what happens after university can be daunting, but is a necessary part of a successful time at university. This site has been created with the primary aim of helping and supporting you through this process. Here you will find information on up and coming events, reviews of recent guest lecturer, how to guides relating to employability, interviews with local professionals and much more. We will be shouting out examples of student success, whilst also asking how they achieved it, so that others can learn from their experiences. Furthermore, we will be offering you a forum to ask any questions that you may have about potential careers.
