Fifty-one per cent of UK law students are willing to work for free to gain an internship, new research has found.

Law students said they are happy to work between 52 and 56 hours a week at their first job, but expect to earn £29,000 a year in return.

Nearly a quarter of law students also said they were likely to defer graduate entry to take a year out, while 57 per cent said they would relocate worldwide if given an attractive job offer.

Interestingly, 47 per cent of law students believe that they should pay for their own education.

The trendence Graduate Barometer surveyed 1,500 students from 16 UK universities.
