Career opportunities
The course in Jewish and Islamic civilisations is an arts degree
and graduates have skills that are highly valued by potential
employers and they pursue the same kinds of careers as other
arts graduates. Trinity College’s Careers Advisory Service
recently surveyed employers about what they looked for in arts
graduates and top of the list came: enthusiasm for the position,
personal qualities and transferable skills such as good oral
communication, written communication, team work and problem
solving. Students of Jewish and Islamic civilisations have ample
opportunity to develop all of these skills within a department that
is relatively small and very student centered. A knowledge of the
cultures, values and histories of different societies in the global
community is an advantage for many types of careers.
Our graduates have followed careers in areas such as law,
NGOs, journalism and media, and teaching. They also have
been very successful in gaining places in MA and PhD

Why study Law at Trinity College?
Trinity College Dublin’s School of Law, is Ireland’s oldest and
most internationally renowned law school. The School, ranked
1st in Ireland and 51st in the World in the 2011 QS World
University rankings of law schools, attracts students of the
highest calibre.
By national and international comparisons we are small in size,
an advantage that fosters a friendly and vibrant relationship
between staff and students, one inspired by mutual respect and
co-operation. We are widely recognised for providing a liberal
environment where independent thinking, the promotion of the
ideals of social inclusion and equality is strongly encouraged.
We educate people to be the leaders of the legal profession,
public service and society.
In addition to our favourable smaller class sizes, Trinity College
Dublin’s law degrees offer an unrivalled number of optional
modules in the final two years of study, thus affording students
the opportunity to specialise and gain a competitive advantage
over graduates from many other universities. Students reading
any of our five undergraduate degree programmes, will have
available to them all of the modules required for entry to the Irish
and UK professional bodies.
The School is home to one of Ireland’s leading legal periodicals,
the ‘Dublin University Law Journal’, and the ‘Trinity College
Law Review’. The latter is published by the student members
of the College’s Law Society and now enjoys international
dissemination on HeinOnline.
Trinity College Dublin’s LL.B. degrees prepare students not only
for life as ‘lawyers’, but also enable them to enter many career
fields such as business, journalism, financial services, politics,
foreign affairs and diplomacy and public services. The skills
learned through studying law in Trinity College Dublin are useful
in all walks of life.
