Oh its not just Sheffield, its all the law departments in general tbh.
You'll get like 6-8 hours of lectures a week and 2 or 3 hours worth of seminars. Way too much free time, so you need the discipline to do the work yourself (which can be a lot of reading).
There are some absolutely brilliant lecturers but then some not so great too..
The law school has a great reputation but I guess I expected more from them? (You wont get any help with vacation scheme or training contract applications either).

Surely by this age and with this degree you should be independant enough to be able to force yourself to work in your free time and find work experience and placements yourself? Not many universities if any at all sort out vacation schemes FOR you...

i dont think its so much them sorting out vac schemes FOR you as actually advising you a bit about the process etc. the law department is ok - guess you get out what you put in really. although i have heard some disturbing rumours that norma hird and margaret llewelyn have left amongst others, which is a bit worrying as im about to do a masters at sheffield and those were amongst the best law lecturers in the department.
