In-House Legal Counsel
If litigation is not for you, there is always the option to move ‘in-house’. Large corporations such as public-listed companies, multinationals and pharmaceuticals have their own specific legal departments. As opposed to working for multiple clients, the corporation will be your only client. You work to ensure the best interests of your company are legally protected.
Instead of pursuing a career in legal practice, indulge your interests in the academics of law. You could pursue a Master’s programme and go on to become a legal researcher, writer, lecturer, tutor or academic head at a law school.
A law degree also allows you to take up employment in the public sector. Here, most law graduates opt to join the police force or the Legal Department of the Malaysian Government – The AG’s Chambers. You can even join the Legal Departments of other Government Offices or Ministries.
