    So. We're out, and some of you, like me, will be at a stage with their studies where they have to decide what to study next. Call me, hmm, let's go with "unusual", but I really wanted to study EU Law. Still tempted tbh.

    But I also want to study something which willl stand me in good stead to keep up with technology in the coming years, i.e. e-commerce, data protection (!?) perhaps.

    My best, compromised, bet seems to be Contract, Civil Lit., maybe Land Law and EU Law.

    I'm starting Level 3 of Cilex btw so that might give you an idea of the scope of my options.

    I just wanted to see what people's thought were on this and see if anyone has any idea how useful one area of law might be or not be following brexit.


    Law degrees and law qualifications will continue to incorporate obligatory EU components up until we have fully separated under Article 50. At the current term it will still be included in Qualifying Law Degrees. But even after that point of separation it will not be wholly true that we have fully separated. There will be a fair amount of EU jurisprudence to appreciate if we have an EEA agreement with the EU and other countries, which is quite likely we'll have. Therefore, studying EU law will still prove useful to you practically.

    Further, academic interest should be sufficient to persuade you to take an EU law elective, even if taken on a vocational/professional course CILEx offer.
