hmmm..I guess nobody has advice for me?
I don't have so much knowledge about different firms, but have you checked out www.rollonfriday.com?

I also recommend paying a visit to the [URL="http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=265"]Legal Careers Forum [/URL.

P.S

where are you studying?
You are looking for a vac, and not a mini-pupillage?

Solicitors and Barristers tend to earn different sums of money,
but for Solicitors the average salary for a firm with less than 40 employees are 65.000£ / Year. Firms with between 40 and 80 averages 71.000£ while
the giant firms with over 80 employees averages 80.000£.

For Barristers, the salary is more varying, at least I think and while some earn a quite modest sum of money, others draw in more cash than the partners (highest staff of solicitors) of top firms.

Yeah so basically it's on par with every other socialist country in the world, Canada included. I was just hoping there was a country in the world where lawyers made at least somewhat close to what lawyers in the U.S. make and which is not the U.S. itself.

Hello, fellow Lawyers/Law-students. Im new to the forum and also studying Law. Basically, I need some advice on applying for vacation placements. Im mainly looking to target medium-sized firms around london possibly. Anyone care to give me any tips/info etc. Much appreciated.
What kind of areas of law? It's hard to give advice without some more info. What interests you / can you see yourself practising?

You could try Charles Russell, Farrer and Co, Eversheds, Withers, Olswang, Bird and Bird ....

Basically just use resources like lawcareers.net or the training contract handbook and do some research.

All the best at Queen Mary. I applied there for law and politics but they rejected me, but got an offer from my second choice anyway. Think Queen Mary are somewhat underrated on TSR. They're very decent for intellectual property, and when I was living in London, I thought of going to their lectures and seminars which are open to the public but never got round to it. Not really that into intellectual property any more though. More of a constitutional minded person. Guess that makes sense after studying politics and watching Yes Minister.

Hey thanks. Ah well, I'm sure you'll have a great time at your uni (I think last time I remember you had an unconditional from Durham?)

Heh, yeah there seems to be a lot of university snobbery on here I've noticed. None of it matters though because in the end, Queen Mary has a fantastic law department, even though it often gets overlooked when people compare it to other London colleges such as UCL/LSE/King's.

Anyway, I can't wait to start uni this year. I have considered reading up on some law books this summer before I go, but I most probably will procrastinate it and end up not doing it. :p:

Speaking of Politics, I've got a resit this month. :eek:

Yep. Sent off the AS12 by special delivery, well my dad did.

You may find students from red brick universities such as Birmingham and Manchester will play down the difference between their universities to Oxbridge, meanwhile believing there is a huge chasm between themselves and the likes of Reading and Queen Mary. I've even seen people prefer more 'traditional' universities when they're not performing as well as they should over less 'traditional' universities who excel. Happens with Keele too.

Either that or they exaggerate the area surrounding the university as being akin to Baltimore or Detriot. But it's okay if you're in Nottingham even if you do get shot. :rolleyes:

I've been reading up on topics I like and have two set textbooks. Just finished reading up on male victims on sexual assault and requested another on a similar theme. After that, I'll probably go for something about the binge culture we have in the country. :rolleyes: Difference with me is that I'm not studying anything now so I have the time to do this.

I did Edexcel route A. Pretty enjoyable actually. Remember coming out of my constitutional exam and thinking about it. Thought to myself, 'Strange, I enjoyed that.'

Lucky. :p: I could be doing the same if it weren't for these A levels (that I don't even *have* to do!) :p:

Hehe. I'd probably have done route A had I done the A2. It does look the most interesting.

Perhaps you should have done a politics degree instead of law? :p:

Oops, it looks like I have to get back to revision now if I am to pass these exams. :eek:

Ah, I see. What are you thinking of doing a Masters in? I'm also contemplating one, even though it's way too early for me to be thinking about it. :p:

Ooh im joining
Ok I have a question for a friend. She's decided she wants to be a barrister and head down the Criminal law route. We're picking our 3rd year modules and she wasnt sure if;
a) Coursework or exams modules, do they have any bearing? (I told her no!)
b) Should she take any traditional modules? Or will any do?
c) Do you specialize during the BVC rather than now? (So doesnt matter what you chose)
d) Do module choices restrict you in any way?

TY for any help! :p:
