TOP SECRET: You can still get a job in law without a law degree!!! We have just received this very exciting email from one of our lovely ladies in the English Department, so you might want to take a look at this…
A leading global law firm is opening a support office in Newcastle and is really keen to recruit some talented Newcastle students to work as part-time paralegals. They’re specifically keen to recruit a mixture of law and non-law students, and I know that English is one of the subjects where there’s often quite a lot of interest in a legal career. Furthermore, I suspect English students, in particular, have lots of the skills that they are after. It’s quite a rare opportunity for students to get some really high-quality, paid work experience with a leading employer, and so I wondered if it would be something to highlight…
Are you considering a career in Law? Would you like a part-time job with a leading international law firm? Are your time management skills excellent?

They wish to recruit a team of paralegals, and part-time jobs are available. They are particularly keen to recruit some talented non-law students from Newcastle University, and so this could be a fantastic opportunity for any English students considering a career in law.
