Career Outcomes

CUNEF Universidad Bachelor in Law is designed to train specialists for a career in a wide range of legal professions (lawyers, judges, prosecutors, notaries, registrars, etc.), ready to take on prominent roles in the public sector, the corporate sector, advisory firms, consulting firms or the field of politics, among others.

Starting in the private sector, the first and most relevant option is to practice Law. Lawyers are free and independent professionals who provide a fundamental service to society by contributing to peaceful and orderly conflict resolution.

An interesting alternative is in-house legal counselling in corporations (including listed companies). Organisations require experts who can make decisions according to the Law.
And finally, another excellent option is the public sector, since a Bachelor in Law is a prerequisite for many positions in national and regional government agencies.
