    I'm studying law with the OU. We're just looking at the English Legal system at the moment. Haven't really gone into a particular area of law just yet... though our next unit is on EU Law... fun! LOL. As I study part-time I don't know anyone to talk to about my studies.... I've spoken to my friends and family but they always come back with 'errrrr' lol.

    I don't know exactly what it does, but I do a course a year, worth 60points... which means I need to do 6 years in total. I've already passed my first and now in the middle of my second. We have 4 compulsory courses to do, 2 at level 2 and 2 at level 3. I'm doing my first compulsory course at level 2 atm. It's mainly all computer based though and we have about 1 tutorial a month.

    Will that give you a QLD? Does it cover all of the courses that are compulsory for a QLD?

    Yeah it does, it must do. We had to attend a day at a College of Law the other week for it to become qualifying... we got a little certificate to say we attended.

    It's not just you, many don't actually realise how important university is in law. I certainly didn't. It's a sad tale, since other professions don't care as much, but this is the legal profession - snooty by nature *tuts*

    For me personally I knew that prestige was a factor, but I didn't know that it was such a big deal. I went to a state school so wasn't very well informed, all I was told was get into a 'redbrick' and you're sorted to be a lawyer. Now that I want to be a barrister, it's not as rosy as once thought. By all means Birmingham has great law department, but had I known I maybe would have applied to Oxbridge, which I didn't do for various reasons, namely financial and family.
