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:
Criminology at Cambridge. Or politics at LSE or something. Need a first before I can think of this anyway. I have the finances to poay for it from working over the past two years.

Hey every one, I need some help, I doing a BTEC in business and im predicted DDD=AAA At A-levels, I've contacted all the unis i'm interested in (i.e. durham, bristol, sheffield, UEA, York, SOAS and leicester) and they say that they accept BTECs and they will consider an application from me. The thing is since I'm doing a BTEC i dont have to sit any exams but for entry to a couple of these unis, I have to sit the LNAT. Does anyone know what I can do to prepare for the LNAT, anything I should read, any practice test I should take etc. one more thing, can anyone suggest any interesting law books I can read or websites I can visit, Thanks in advance.

You can't prepare for it as such. You will have people who claim you can but they're just after your money on a useless scheme.

Well to be honest I think she is very lucky indeed. Otherwise a third is hardly worth anything these days.

I think you have to look at how long ago she achieve that third and how much experience she has. standards have increased and i think that more people get 2.1 and 2.2 than people who get thirds. so a third wont get anyone very far, IMO.

You wouldn't get a training contract at Farrer and Co with a third today. Simple.

Having said that, she's obviously extremely competent. It's sad that academic "late bloomers" are so frowned upon today.

I think that Mr Crew should get his facts straight before he writes articles: ''But a 32-year-old conveyancing lawyer, Simon Nosworthy, a law graduate of York University''. York have only just begun to offer the law course! Okay, i'm being pedantic, but it serves as an adequate distraction from revision.

Hi I've just joined this society and I was wondering how many of you have done or are doing a Law degree and what's it like because I'm thinking of doing one. I don't know whether it would be better to to do a straight Law degree or do it with criminology.

Do you enjoy criminology? If so do it. I think it's slightly underrated by students because it's not as fashionable as law or history, and is more of a postgraduate course too, but if you really enjoy it then why not? As long as your degree is still a qualifying law degree then I'd seriously consider it.

Well actually I'm still at college and doing Law as one of my A-Levels which I throughly enjoy. I know it's different but I thought as I'm going to have send off my applications next year I might as well do some research in advance and ask here.

What you could is try and find some criminology textbooks and request them from the British Library via your local library and give them a read. It costs 3.50 a book but when you only have five choices, it might be worth paying.

I just looked at the latest debate in the Lords, the Torture (Damages) Bill caught my eye. It was quite informative. You might want to take a look.

Human embryology and abortion I believe. They were on about cutting back the limit from 24 weeks to 20. I expect this cut to fail though, just because of Labour's strangle-hold in the Commons.
