    Hi!

    I'm about to start my 3rd year at the Uni of Aberdeen and so I had to choose my honours courses. However, the university have just announced that we'll be able to change our choices. The 2nd semester's course is crucial here because I'm planning to base my dissertation on it (writing which I'm planning to start next summer).

    I chose Delict because:
    - I love this subject and did well in the ordinary course
    - it is run by a renowned professor (former Cambridge lecturer), whom I would love to supervise my dissertation.

    However, I'm still thinking whether I should change it to the Intellectual Property law, because:
    - it interests me more
    - I'm planning to work in that branch professionally in the future

    I'm definitely going to take both of those courses at some point, but the one I pick in my 3rd year will determine the topic of my dissertation.

    I don't know what kind of advice I'm looking for, but maybe if someone could sharer their experience with either of those courses, I would appreciate it.

    You are overthinking this. If you want to do your dissertation (forget about who may or may not be supervising it), on delict then do that course this year, if not, do the one that interests you more.

    It doesn't matter whether you have studied a subject if you want to specialise in it. You can always study that subject later at law school. I didn't study Labour law at uni.

    Choose delict if that's the one you love and want to do a dissertation in.
