indecisive about law at uni

    • Thread Starter

    I am interested in studying law at Southampton university however i have been told by many people that law is a dull and dry subject. I wanted to know whether this is true or not ??

    Also i have been advised to look at courses such as international relations or politics which will help me find a career path in to a cooperate or commercial role ...

    Depends. If you like it then it can be a lot of fun. It offers a career path for many different personalities and over different areas. it is very competitive though. Are the people telling you law graduates ?

    Cant really see why a politcis degree or international relations is going to help you any more?

    Pergaps do some research. I wouldnt rely just on asking a few questions on here.

    If you want a corporate/commercial role, Economics or Maths is likely to be much more helpful in terms of having a wide variety of options.
