I'm one of those people who don't quite know what they want to do yet regarding my future career.
However, I do know that I want to go to University for sure!
Therefore, I'm at the 'dilemma' of not knowing what degree to study at Uni. Preferably I want to get a degree in an all rounder degree of which will leave a variety of career options open for me, while at the same time studying something I find interesting and so on.
After conducting some research, I've concluded that a Law degree could be a good possible course choice.
Seeing as Law is something I'm interested in. It offers a variety of career options. It's a prestigious subject to have a degree in and is very well rounded.
With this in mind however, I don't think (all though it is a possibility) I'm going to actually have a career within Law.
I'm asking if any of you have any advice, or have been in my situation and if so what have you done?
Don't go to university unless you have an idea of what to do.
Going 'just for the sake of going' probably isn't the best of ideas. Wait until you know what you want to do first. If you go beforehand, you're commiting to a 3 year course and a large amount of debt for something you may not enjoy.
Do you actually have an interest in the Law? Are you interested in debating whether or not Homosexual Sadomasochistic behaviour should be criminalised? Interested in exploring the link between Primacy of EU law and Direct Effect? Interested in reading a 60 page judgment about whether Parliament is Sovereign? And then another 100 pages textbook, and another, and another?
Long story short, don't just do a law degree for the sake of it. Law degrees require a lot of hard work, and then, if you decide to get a career in law, you've got one of the worst job prospects of all graduates. Do something which truly interests you, and your able to put the effort into.
