Career Path after Graduation
Graduates from the School of Law are equipped with the knowledge to enter law schools after their graduation. In order to become a lawyer, an individual must graduate from a law school and pass the bar exam. However, the pass rate of the bar exam in Korea does not exceed 70-80%, which is unlike the United States. Thus, each law school is trying to enhance the pass rate. The graduates from the School of Law would certainly take a favorable position with the bar exam if they double-major in human and social sciences. This would also make our graduates fit for the fundamental spirit of the law schools, which would lead to a higher chance of getting admitted to a law school.
For the graduates who are not seeking to enter a law school, they are also armed with the knowledge of both the law and human/social sciences, which exhibits competitiveness with the civil service exams and being welcomed by the corporate world, the financial world, and journalism.
