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!

Thank youuuu

I think one thing you need to consider is the amount of people who are coming out of uni without any experience. A degree apprenticeship will have ur foot already in the door with experience and most companies tend to offer u a job at the end
