As a student on a family law course, you’ll be focusing on issues faced by children and young people in relation to the law. You’ll explore how different factors affect young people, why they might commit crimes and how to support young offenders and their families. After graduating, you might want to pursue a career as a social worker, youth worker, case worker or housing officer. You may be working with children and young people in their family homes, or you might want to work with children in care and be based in a care home, or you could work at a young offender’s facility to support young offenders. There are also postgraduate opportunities available, and you could study subjects such as social work or criminal justice.
