    Hi - have to choose my modules for next year.

    I would like to work in commercial law here in London when I graduate.

    My second year modules are compulsory, except one. I must do next year Property, Trusts and Tort. The third module, I was thinking of Competition. It sounds exciting in the module description. It is a full one year module at King's.

    Would Competition Law be relevant to a career in commercial law/for my TC apps next year?

    Is it quite difficult? I've heard it's pretty good (at King's Law School anyway...) but know absolutely nobody that took it.


    It completely depends on what you like doing. Competition sounds dead boring to me.

    I'm choosing between Family and Employment.

    Yes, competition is a relatively important area for corporate at city law firms, particularly for high-end M&A work. Its not core, and you'd always get specialist advice from the Competition specialists if competition issues were of concern (large city firms all have competition departments or at least competition specialists), but its certainly relevant. Can be difficult but depends on the uni. Much of it is EU law.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
