I was thinking of doing Law or Business law by I hear the prospects after graduating are poor for non RG uni graduates? I would be doing it an average uni like DMU or Hertfordshire, Leicester as the ambitious option so is it not worth doing Law if you don't do it at a top uni?
Law is a respected degree no matter where you study. However if you plan to be a barrister or solicitor at a top firm unfortunately the university often matters. However i'm hoping to do law with business at an average uni. That could then lead into a career path of business management if i wanted as well as keeping a career path in law open.
yeah it's a waste of £50k to do law at a non-RG university. you'd be better off doing a stem degree
just dont do law. full stop.
Pointless at any uni. Do a technical degree.
One of the bigger problems you'll face employment-wise is that, if you're going to a non RG uni, chances are you don't have AAA/AAB A levels. A lot of firms filter applicants on that basis.
But I've seen people with firsts from non-RG unis get to good firms and good sets at the Bar. Often they have a master's degree from a more prominent university.
I was tempted to take the intellectually pure approach to this, that it's worth studying whether it gets you a job or not, but I gather it is career opportunities that interest you.
my friend completed a law degree at DMU and the opportunities that she's had since getting that degree are incredible! People look at your degree at the end of the day, 'good' universities are always subject to change
The thing is, law is an over saturated industry as it is. So to be honest the odds are against you making it unless your in the top ten unis let alone top 20,30 - then polys, That being said if its a degree which interests you and the your happy with the career options it provides then why does any of our opinions matter ?
