Hi does anyone have advice on how to choose which law options to take?
Should I consider what is useful for my preferred practice area in my future career/ what I can do well academically in/ pure interest?
For example, I get the impression Family Law is an "easier" subject so would it be wise to take that sort of option to secure a good grade, despite it not being very useful in most corporate law firms? Do law firms actually care what electives you took or is it only the grades that matter?
Would appreciate all advice on how you decided on your options, thanks!

I'd go with picking what you're interested in. In terms of a training contract at commercial law firms, given they recruit half of their trainees from non-law backgrounds they most likely don't care about what law modules you take since that sort of work doesn't usually require much legal knowledge that you can't pick up pretty quickly anyway.
