Law at University FAQ Watch
Out of all my subjects (History and English) Law (CIE) is by far my most difficult. Unless you do the course it's difficult to explain not only the scope, but the depth of the teaching.
My law teachers are actually all lecturers/senior lecturers at the local law school (an affiliate of the university of Liverpool) and teach us almost exactly the same subject material, albeit more condensed.
There is no way that when I start uni in September I won't have a slight advantage. Especially since Tort and Contract will be in my first year and those are my A2 subjects.
First thing you want to establish is whether or not you want to do an LLB in law or not. If not that conversion from one subject to another would be fairly easy. If you want to do an LLB (course that allows you to practice law) then conversion is near impossible from another course. I know of someone who has currently got a degree and is now doing a law degree in 2 years just by covering the basic modules.
I'm looking at doing a geography/english degree and then a GDL (conversion). Would this not qualify me to do Law?
I am a law undergrad and have been given my first contract essay to do, however I am finding difficulties on how to approach it, i.e. what style should I write it in? For and against?
And what kind of points should I make?
The question is 'To what extend do judges establish the existence of a contract based solely on the intention of the parties?'
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Does anyone know the best way to file work doing a Law degree? I mean should I buy lever arch files, ring binders, or document wallets? Or anything completely different? Thanks
I would say it's down to personal preference. I am half way through the second year of my law degree and I have one a4 notebook with dividers for my lecture notes, and each module has a seperate section (I keep my lecture notes fairly neat so I don't have to rewrite them). Then I have an a4 notebook for every module to do seminar prep in, make any general notes and keep any sheets in. Then I have a ring binder folder for revision, with the dividers to seperate each subject. I also find flash cards quite useful when revising to write case names and important legislation on. Hope this helps and doesn't sound too crazy/ excessive :-)
Liverpool, asking for 32 IB points at least a 5 in Maths(S/L)
Manchester, asking for 32 IB points, 6,6,6 in higher level subjects and at least a 5 in English
Sheffield, asking for 36 IB points, 6,6,6 in higher level subjects and at least a 5 in English
Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), asking for 26 IB points
Leeds, asking for 35 IB points, 6,6,5 in higher level subjects and at least a 4 in English
So that is 5 out 5.
I will take my time to firm. Learning towards Liverpool and Manchester.

I have picked History, Maths and Sociology but I do not know if these subjects are good enough to study law at a Russell Group University. Also is Sociology seen as a 'soft' subject is I pick it?
Thank You x
Prob the best combination.
