    So, I have to pick my modules very soon (the 11th).

    I've pretty much already decided that I don't want to be a solicitor or barrister. Should I bother picking the optional modules I'll need to qualify? Is there any advantage to qualifying if you don't actually want to go into law?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    The only advantage is the women's prerogative.

    Do you mean modules to make your degree a qualifying law degree?

    I can't see any real advantage to taking them just to get a QLD if you have no intention of using it afterwards, in which case I'd be inclined to pick modules based on whether they'd be interesting to you and/or useful in the future.

    But if there's any chance you might change your mind and decide you want a legal career then having a QLD will save you a lot of money and effort not having to take the GDL to convert.

    Ah, yes, that was what I meant. I wasn't very clear, sorry

    Tough call. I suppose I have until the weekend to think about it a bit. Thanks for the replies, reps for both of you!
