    I think I always had this plan that i wanted to be more of a courtroom lawyer as my passion for debating and public speaking was the reason why I chose the degree.

    However, I have come to realise that the types of law that I enjoy/excel in are mostly litigation heavy and desk jobs.

    If i had wanted a desk job then I wouldn't have pursued the degree in the first place.

    I think that is where my problem lies.

    I was able to take an optional extra credit course in 1st year and I chose forensic medicine. I absolutely adored the course and it made me realise that i had this immense interest in human anatomy and physiology which I had never been able to explore whilst in school.

    Over the past few months I haven't been able to get forensic medicine out of my head and i think it has just confused things further for me.
    Had the same issue of choosing law because I thought I'd want to work in a law firm but now I don't.

    I want to work in the civil service or in the public sector now so I'm quite lucky in that my degree will still be of value/valued by employers.

    Is there anyway you can take a postgrad qual to get into forensic sciences? Alternatively medical law might be of interest to you. My uni does it as a module and you can specialise in it via a masters.

    I'm glad that things worked out for you with regards to the relevancy of the degree.

    Yes I could take a postgrad qualification in forensic science so i guess that is something I could look into.

    i have looked into medical law, and it does look really interesting so hopefully i get to study that next year as part of my honours.

    My favourite type of law is Property Law but it holds little opportunity for courtroom time, and that is the part I love.

    I think for now I will just carry on with my degree and I might come across an area of law that i love, and would be satisfied with a desk job in order to practice it.

    Thanks for replying !
