Word of advice, do the prelim reading, it does help.. ull get the list later.
Also ull be doing a module called World Legal Orders, which im actually doing an essay on now.. and just to warn u.. its a complete joke.
Its like taking history.. which would be fine except that im taking a law degree.
Also if u ever meet someone called Riz Mokal.. he is the greatest lecturer u will ever meet, do not mess with him. he has been known to make ppl cry. seriously. in fact.. bow
Also erm dont do what i do and skip lectures.. nor tutorials.. im on thin ice.
But just to let u guys and girls know.. so long as u do the reading, thats really all that counts.
And please, please please realise thats there are many clever ppl out there who may be in other uni's better and worse than UCL so please do not adopt a superiority complex as the majority of this yrs freshers seem to have done. Ur not better than the rest for getting to UCL, ur no more cleverer for doing law than a language student at SESS across the road from Bentham house.. so bear that in mind when u speak to ppl.
I have found (im really picky at choosing friends whom i trust) that nearly all of my best friends are from halls and do a variety of courses, which is nice as i dont have to talk about law 24/7.
Also dont hate Kings, i heard someone actually took the rivalry too seriously and actually spat on a kings lawyer.. all i can say is that even if i had wanted to since they are lucky sods who have open book exams in 2nd and 3rd yr, there are times in life where u cant always do what u want!
seriously though, forget the london rivalry.. ull meet great friends from all over which makes london so special.
