Ask Get In about things you can do to boost your CV if you finished Law School With a 2:2

A 2.2 is not the end of the road. In fact there is a theory that if you have a 2.2 or lower, you are very likely to succeed because you will work extra hard to prove yourself. We advise that you actually get a job because with time, work experience becomes more important than your grades. In 5-10 years time when if you are applying for a job, nobody is going to ask you about your law school grades! They want to know what your experience is. Finally, take self development seriously. Attend professional courses, get certifications, join associations and MOST importantly, build your network. Also have confidence in yourself. You will be surprised that many Senior Advocates of Nigeria did not graduate with a first class or a 2.1!
