Alternative law careers

    Hi, I'm graduating with a law degree next year, but I feel like I don't want to be a solicitor anymore.

    My question is what alternative careers are available with a law degree (without doing FE1s)? Would I be able to land a job in HR management or banking, or even journalism? I've completed an internship at a commercial law firm in Dublin, but the thought of working as a trainee solicitor for 2 years without actually having much interest in the career puts me off sitting the FE1s altogether.

    Any careers open to me other than solicitor/barrister/lecturer without having to do a degree in a different area? Cheers!
