Hey! They use red, white & blue -- they're copying us!According to a study by Legal Week Intelligence, the percentage of UK law students planning a non-legal career has fallen over the last two years.

The global economic meltdown has students looking in the dwindling legal field, rather than in the disastrously impacted finance and banking sector.

The number of British law students planning to eschew the legal profession when they leave law school has fallen from 18% in 2007 to 13% in 2009.

Only 17 percent of the 2,500-plus students surveyed are considering working in investment banking, down from 25% two years ago.

Fifty percent of undergraduates want to be solicitors; 16% want to be barristers; and 22% would be happy either way.

Of those not intending to be lawyers, civil service and academia are the most popular options.
