    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!!
    True. Luckily my department specialises in international commercial law!! Yay!

    Its good to see someone started a law society, I was going to do it myself a few weeks ago but didnt becuase I wasnt sure there was enough students to start one, obviously I was wrong!! (gladly)

    So, yes, Id like to join. Legal is one of my majors and I come from a 'law oriented' family. :eek: is that ok?

    Which area of law? Well like everyone criminal law is interesting, a lot more interesting than civil law.

    This is what I don't get, people think criminal law is a lot more interesting. Each to his own I guess. I suppose that's why you have a lot of crime TV programmes and even the courtroom dramas tend to focus on crime.

    I'd like to join if I may.

    I'm going to Kings College London in September to study Law (pending getting AAB/A) and am very excited about being allowed to study law for 3 years (4 if I get to go abroad).

    My personal favourite areas of law are public international law, constitutional law, employment law, civil liberties, human rights law and immigration law (admittedly, all these areas overlap with each other).

    The areas I'm most interested in law are those which directly affect each citizens relationship with power, as opposed to law regarding how citizens interact with each other either in economic or social terms.I also look forward to studying law controlling the relationships between countries. This is why I'm looking forward to going to Kings (and perhaps why I rejected UCL) because Kings has many internationally recognised research centres regarding issues on civil liberties and human rights.

    So am I in?

    You're in

    I guessed you were off to King's College because of your username

    It's a great advantage studying in London as I found out after choosing my 5 universities (took one off) because you have all these events like research and that, which are free to attend. Not everyone's thing but certainly is mine.

    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.
    At the moment, Nottingham and Manchester, still thinking about others. I want to be a barrister as it appeals and i'm sure i would enjoy it more than being a solicitor, hopefully my 2 lots of work experience in chambers this year will confirm this! The money aspect does come into it, but it is something i have always wanted to do. Although from a young age, as i have got older i have looked into more and my opinion have bettered!

    How long are/were your work experiences in chambers? What chambers are they? Do they have a website? What parts of the law do they specialise in?

    Thanks

    Both for a week, One in August and One in October.

    The one in August is in 4 Stone Buildings which specialises in Company Law
    The one in October is in 2 Garden Court which specialises in Crime, Family, Housing and some more.

    They do both have websites if you search on google.

    I e-mailed and wrote to approx 80-90 chambers and none would accept me as i wasn;t an undergradute or i wasn't 18.

    Hi

    I'm also an avid reader of the Times legal sections! Have accepted LSE for Law with French Law because I'm a self-professed europhile, and a passionate linguiste. Hopefully, I'll be able to qualify as a juriste-linguiste working to keep Europe entact for the sake of the continent and individual countries!I'll probably decide to become a barrister as a preliminary to this, as getting to the Old Bailey Final in the Bar Mock Trial as the barrister inspired me no end!
    Looking forward to future debates about legal reform when I get back from France in august!

    That's useful information. I have heard of a few people though who weren't quite undergraduates and not 18 yet, but this is extremely rare.

    Is it possible to get chambers longer than a week? I guess not because of sheer competition. I, myself, would like to to get work experience by working in the courts.

    I have some articles I've taken from The Times from college in my room some where. There's a few things in them which we can discuss. Will dig them out soon.

    I'll add you in

    There seems to be a lot of interest in the international level these days.
