    Offers from Warwick/Bristol/Durham yet anyone? :/

    If so what were your stats? I sent my application off ages ago and heard nothing. Does this mean I'm rejected? :/

    My application was:
    - 8A*s 2 As
    - AAAB at AS (B was explained in my reference - something about exam boards?)
    - Good personal statement (Cambridge Law Conference, work exp in UN in Geneva, extend project, magistrates court, standards clubs, 2 books read, deputy head boy, south of england sport, 1st team rugby captain, 1st team cricket captain etc)
    - LNAT = don't know

    Any feed back would be so helpful Thank you and good luck with all your applications

    How much reading are we talking? Per week for example.
    Depends heavily on the module and the university, but for core modules at a decent RG law faculty you're looking at an average reading list (per seminar) of a chapter in a textbook (20-50 pages), 10-15 cases (each about 10-20 pages), perhaps a few sections of statute and three or four journal articles. You might have three or four seminars per week.

    That said, everyone is selective in their reading, and a main skill to be developed from a law degree is speed-reading to pick out the important information.

    Well, it might be different for different unis - but for bristol we have 5 units (excluding the introductory unit) and each unit has a seminar every two weeks you need to prepare for. For each seminar you're given around 2-3 chapters of books to read (these vary, some being some 20 pages, some nearing 70/80), around 5/6 cases (which can vary in length, one is 100 pages, some are around 10 pages) and then articles and journals, and thats just the essential reading. You are also then given further reading to do, but usually there just isn't the time.

    Per week i'd say (depending on where your seminars are spaced over the two weeks) around 5/6 chapters of books, 12ish cases, journals and articles, and then preparing answers for discussion, and writing essay structures etc. (if you were to do the minimum asked of you, which is usually all you are able to do)

    It's totally doable, but when you have lectures, extra curricular, and essays on top of that - it can feel like a lot. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions, more than happy to help

    The Guardian rankings should not be taken seriously by any sane man, for the same reason no sane man would elect to go to UEA over Edinburgh. CUG are a much more reliable ranking system and QMUL is outside the top 10.
    All I can say is that you did a access course and were asking advice a while back. Good luck getting a training contract, you have no hope in getting any law related work. Keep posting on tsr, it will help your job prospects further I can assure you.

    I have never asked for advice on this site. I am not sure why you're so bitter, but it's nice to know that I have such an effect on you for you to the this angry. I have powers.
