Law colleges changing lives and careers

law colleges

Law colleges open their doors (or their student portals) to everyone wanting to make a change. We’re not talking about changing the world in general; just people wanting to make a change in theirs.

Law colleges vary in size and type, but their ‘mission statements’ are similar. They exist to enhance the skills of legal professionals and those looking to get into the field. Some are attached to universities as schools of law and others operate independently.

So why do students attend? A legal college or a course provider is a stepping stone for those wanting to change careers. They come from jobs in sectors like hospitality, accounting, and social work, giving them transferrable skills they can then apply to a potential law career. Students who finish a Diploma in Legal Services and have a background in accounting can go on to work for a bank. Those with social work experience can go into family law.

Law colleges attached to universities offer postgraduate courses and diplomas. They offer a mix of classroom and practical work, but at the expense of adding on tens of thousands to your HECS debt. This will certainly change your life, but not in a way that makes a positive impact. Classroom attendance in a law college is often compulsory, and that’s difficult for people with full-time work or other obligations.

You can still change your career and your life without compromising your lifestyle. Online law colleges like Melissa Mahoney Legal College run exclusively on the web.
