Do City firms still want law graduates?

In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one wannabe lawyer asks whether a law degree still carries clout among City firms.

“I have read your recent articles about science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) students with interest. I was wondering whether we are getting to a stage where law degrees have become worthless in favour of City firms looking to fill training contract positions with STEM grads, or whether the legal profession, at least for the short term (say ten years) will still be just as fond of law degree holders. I am intersted to get your readers’ thoughts and views on this.”
