    Looking at your posts you seem to be in a frenzy without any clue about what you want to do.

    I would suggest having a sit down, a think and doing a lot of research into what career you want.

    getting in IB or law is incredibly competitive and you WILL need to have knowledge and work experience in the sectors.

    Lol i see you on the IB forum, on the law forum, and on threads where you ask what career has the best prospects. Firstly, do some research. Learn about what law involves and how to become a lawyer. Then learn about the other careers that you're considering. Then, search on google for law certifications (why do you want to spend a year appreciating law when you could do some research and then study a law course?) or law insight days.

    Please stop making so many threads about careers that you seem to know little to nothing about. Just use google to find information about the careers and learn what roles there are in law and in any other career that you might want to pursue.

    Btw, what do even mean by legal certification to 'appreciate law'? If you want a certificate to practise law, go to university and study a law degree or do a GDL after a degree. If you want an insight into law then go on the student ladder and look at the sixth form law work experience section.

    As above, you seem to be approaching a career for all the wrong reasons (money, prestige etc.).

    You will not obtain a TC at a big firm, particularly not so in London.

    End of.

    You'd be better off putting £100 on Wales to win the Euros. Winning the bet. Putting the winnings on Wales to win the World Cup in 2018. Winning the bet. Buying a mortgage free house and then continuing to work in your current job.

    If you are going to dedicate 1-2 years for a course, for law it's either worthwhile doing a postgraduate LLB over two years or doing the GDL and LPC over two years. No other courses are worthwhile if law is the career you really do want to go into.

    I'm sorry OP but based on your other threads/posts, I have to agree with this dude.

    Ok I'll answer your question. There are no courses that are one or two years in length that will give you an 'appreciation' of the industry. You can do insight days and stuff like that to get an 'appreciation' of the industry. In one year, you could do a GDL course which prepares non-law graduates for a career in law.
    To get a better appreciation of what law involves and what people are best suited for a career in law, search google for lawyer career and read up about the profession.

    We had this before. It might be because of your English but you come across as unneccessarily rude, which puts people off wanting to help you.

    There isnt a 1 year law appreciation course. People simply study law . A bit of research will help you appreciate the path everyone else follows.

    You could do courses which might complement your core law training, but that would be a big gamble.

    If you want prestige and money, then you simply need to have good academics and be smart. Contacts also help.

    There is a btec in applied law but employers will not be impressed by it and it doesn't really teach you anything useful. There is also a level law but that is also useless because it is a blacklisted subject- meaning that employers will think of it as not being academically rigorous enough. To learn law terminology go on a law dictionary and learn terms from there. When applying for training contracts and the like, just make sure you know about the different areas of law (for example, criminal law, family law, corporate law etc...) and the qualities needed to be a good lawyer. To learn these things go on google and search for this information.

    Also, it's rude to call people ignorant when they've clearly made an effort to help you and have given you some helpful information. Anyway i hope this answer satisfies you.

    I find it funny how he's called a couple trainee/qualified solicitors and a law recruiter 'ignorant'. Definitely wouldn't bother responding dude, the guy needs to learn how to find information without being spoonfed.

    GDL + LPC would set you up better to begin a training contract.

    Seems like a waste of money if I'm honest.

    Im just surprised how rude and arrogant he is, considering he's asking for help.

    Those courses are all over the place. Go and do some research into how to become a solicitor and youll see it doesnt involve any of those.

    If those courses are ridiculously expensive then he is in for a shock when it comes to paying for his GDL and LPC.

    I would usually think that someone like this is a troll but he's made so many posts and has been on tsr for a while now that it would be pretty sad if it was all trolling. Either way, he needs to realise that, as an engineering student from a mediocre uni with almost no knowledge of law and finance and seemingly no passion for either of the professions, he is likely to never even get close to a training contract or an IB graduate role.

    You show no humility, but plenty of arrogance. I'm bemised why you put so much effort into being rude to people so they dont want to help you.

    You should do any of those courses.
    You might learn a bit of law.

    Would it help you get a training contract? Unlikely.

    Change your attitude, becayse if your answers were remotely like they are on here you wouldnt survive in a legal office.

    I hope you realise that me and the other guys did just spend at least ten minutes of our time answering your questions while you called us ignorant and told us that we're too little to give you some valuable advice. Plus you've not even said the words thank you to us after receiving our help- all you do is insult and called some useful advice 'bs'. Perhaps you should learn to do your own research using this thing called Google instead of wasting others' time. And if people do give you advice, don't insult them for it and instead show some gratitude. I honestly hope you change your attitude if you ever want to get close to a professional job.
