    I thought it would be a good idea to create a UKL Law Society. It can be for anyone with an interest in the law (such as watching TV programmes like Kavanagh QC, Judge John Deed and Waking The Dead), or studying law.

    In order to join go to the toolbar which starts with User CP and move right to Socs, click and then go through pages to find TSR Law Society (it changes page number) and then click join. I am thinking of making us a user group so I can PM people about events etc.

    Put UKL Law Society member in your signature.

    Why not post about what exactly within law you are interested in? Personally I am interested in IPR/IT and its similar topics such as cybercrime and e-commerce.

    If there is something on a legal topic you would like to find out, instead of posting a thread, which only certain users will see, you could use the signatures as another way of getting at people.

    Excellent, I'll put you on the list. I remember discussing with my former classmates and they said how boring AS law is compared to criminal law (unless you study contract or tort as the option instead). I don't find it that bad at all, ELS requires a different approach than criminal law.

    Which universities have you in mind? Why a barrister and not solicitor? I believe if you are doing it for the financial side, you may be better off a solicitor, as has been said before in the careers section.

    Please count me in! I'm hoping to study Law at university too in 2005.

    Today's paper was awash with important legal issues:

    As well as the plans for a UK Supreme Court, other matters included an important Family Law case and legislation concerning IVF tourists.

    I think it is important that people do actually discuss important and current issues on this thread and there seem to be some very knowledgable people - from whom I can learn a lot.

    Sure. Foreign jurisdictions also apply. In fact, there are some pretty good online German law journals on mental health I came across a few months ago.

    Yep you can join

    May I ask what paper was today's paper? I enjoy reading The Times. It's been rated as the most read by law students and if you read The Times, I am not surprised

    I will have a look around some time in the near future. I've been to so many sites that I've bookmarked over 50.

    I went to a seminar at Gray's Inn in London (where they teach intending barristers) about mental health and found it interesting. At the same time I was touching on legal issues of states of mind such as insanity and other similar conditions because it was touched on for my course when I was learning about homicide.

    You usually find websites that contain information about what other jusrisdictions do in the same situation to compare and discuss them. This often happens when there are debates for change and reform for existing principles.

    Hehe, you won't like me for saying it - The Telegraph. But in my defence - it is bought largely for the sport and education section on a Saturday.

    Here's a thread I started on some time ago http://www.uk-learning.net/showthrea...104#post904104

    I suppose I could always re-edit my first post to put in links of legally-minded threads. Do you think this will help for organisational purposes?

    I have never read the Telegraph and so cannot comment. I guess most broadsheets will be fine. The Times do their own law reports on a Thursday and their supplement, L2, on a Tuesday. This has a law bit inside it, and sometimes they have another law bit for students especially.

    Information about finance, revision and career help mainly. I have not seen that many, but recently have not had much chance to look at college due to exams. I should be visiting in the next two weeks before breakup to read up on some university level books. I'm not sure how frequent this bit is but I will find out.

    I am very interested in the international perspective of law owing to the onset of globalism and its influence on the law. International contracts, trade and litigation arising from commercial agreements and how they are treated by foreign judgements, law and jurisdiction-too exciting and rewarding to miss!!

    Ah you seek a challenge. A lot of the non-international modules are becoming more international. My law lecturer said about the formation of contractions on the internet with two users one accepting, the other making. Both are in two different jurisdictions such as England and the USA. You get these problems in criminal law when you talk about computer related offences too.

    Have a look out for certain journals when you're at uni. The Student Law Review, although not very academic, is very friendly for first time readings and often provide additional criticisms of decided cases not found in standard textbooks and a couple of unreported cases. You won't find these in the more academic journals and reports though (not usually anyway).
