university or apprenticeship for law :/ HELP watch

    • Thread Starter

    hi guys,
    I am interested in becoming a commercial lawyer in the future however iv gt a long way t go as im only still doing my as levels. ive been doing some research lately and i found out that i have two main options to my dream job;

    -by doing an apprenticeship which i can do striaght after my alevels and it takes me 5years with ilex where i will have qualifications to honours degree as well as work expreince ( as a legal excutive) and money cus il be earning while am learning
    - or i could take the 'normal route' and go to uni and do 3yrs law then 2yrs lpc which adds up tbh and by the end of it ill hopefully earn a job bt will have a load of loans by the end of it.

    so my question is by taking the apprenticeships will I be in any way discrimnated if i attempt to go into a big commercial firm because I did not go to uni and are there any difference/advantages if i do decide to go to uni?

    If you don't get into commerical law via an apprenticehip you'll still have a Law degree to fall back on.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
