Mapping the career preferences of Russian law graduates

International Journal of the Legal Profession. 2018. Vol. 25. No. 3. P. 261-277.

Interest in studying law has grown dramatically in Russia in the post-Soviet era. We know little about how law graduates distribute themselves among the available legal specialties. This paper begins to fill that gap by analyzing the results of an original survey of 2016 Russian law graduates. The sample is divided between full-time and correspondence students. Respondents were offered ten possible career paths, as well as options for uncertainty and plans to pursue non-law-related jobs. The results show an intriguing distribution and highlight the influence of respondents’ educational choices and their attitudes towards the Russian legal system in their career choices.
