Stop moaning about how hard it is in my anti law thread all those bandwagon jumpers bring it on urselves
Its because so many people seem to choose it without really liking it just because it can pay well making it harder for those who actually do it to get in, it may not be an easy course but i doubt you need to be an AAAA student to do well
Law's great. Personally, I'm fascinated by the subject as a reflection of the society we live in. I really wanna do the degree, but probably won't practise afterwards.
My best mate, on the other hand, is a chemist. He's been able to follow his dream and get into Oxford, Imperial and Nottingham fairly easy.
I love my subject as much as him - but find so much more competition.
So don't knock lawyers, because some of them have as much interest in their subject as you do yours, but find getting the oppurtunity to study it that much harder.
im only 14 but im pretty mad about law.......it's such a fascinating and diverse subject that has to evolve as society evolves.......obviously, there are a lot of people who have an interest in it because the want the $$$$$$$ when they leave, but for those who have a genuine interest the $$$$$ is only an added bonus.......
Not all law graduates go off and earn $$$$$$$, as you so mildly put it. Only a certain percentage do.
I'm doing law but i wouldnt want to be a barrister it doesnt appeal.
I agree with most of your points and have no problem if you really like and want to do it, if some of you read back a bit i refered to making it easier for people who do like law to do it so you dont need AAA, its not that i'm on sum kind of vendetta.
The law workload is about 3 times that of some other degrees, unis ask for high grades not only because it is a competitive course but also because law is a subject which requires dedication. Unis see high grades as a sign of dedication.
Some other degrees but i take chemistry as an example (as always) which has an average, along with other sciences, of around 30 hrs of contact time a week, that seems a pretty heavy workload, even if for law you're expected to read/learn a lot
Will you stop this crap reference Law vs Chemistry.
They are different subjects, both with high workloads.
Shut up about it and write something useful instead for us lot that are stressing out over this whole application ****!
Yeah calm down, whats to get stressed about over the application, i dont mean to offend anyone
Obiously all academic subjects from good universitys are respected by employers in a wide viriety(?) of jobs, it just surprised me, the insanly large number of people like law, and obiously the ones who post here do love law, maybe we should all stop arguing.
Seems like the best idea altogether!
God, i need to chill!!
I would just love a reply from a Uni, atleast then id know either way!
Well i'm sorry if i've offended anyone but i just like to voice my opinion however outspoken, and i have all my replys from unis
