Apprenticeship or law degree?Watch
This is a topic that I know relies heavily on opinion, and there is no right answer, but it's been on my mind and I wanted to see how other people felt as they might be in the same boat.
I want to study law and eventually, of course, work in it, but can't decide the "best" route - to work through an apprenticeship or years at university.
Negatives of attending university - the fact of the debt, the fact I might not get into university at all (this is a stupid reason tbh but it's still up there), and I don't really know if I want to spend 3+ years in higher education if I'm not even sure there'll be a job at the end of it.
Negatives of an apprenticeship - potentially less respect from those with Proper Degrees, it's a path I never see taken, will I ever actually become a person of power in law... it seems riskier.
It's such a minefield and I genuinely have no clue. I've got a lottt of time to decide, but want to know where I'm going as I'm hugely a forward planner.
What do you think are the positives and negatives of these two options? Any (kind) opinions you have, I'd love to hear. Just chat if you feel inclined!
