I begin studying law in a few weeks and im wondering if ill need a laptop for lectures and other stuff. i have a very high end desktop which i built myself and intend to take with me to uni however is it also essential to have a laptop or will written notes be fine? I know this has been asked before however i couldnt find anything after 2013 so thought id ask to make sure.

you dont have to take a laptop to uni with you. if a module requires the use of computers during lectures the lectures will take place in a computer room. you will be fine taking a notebook into lectures and writing out notes 😊 notes made in lectures are for your own personal use. I've never had a uni lecturer ask to see my notes. If an assignment has to be typed you'll be fine to write it up at home and print it out and hand it in/ upload it to your unis online learning platform

Thank you for the quick reply, thats 1 less thing to worry about as money is going to be tight i imagine. Anything that needs done outside of a lecture with use of a conputer ill be fine with my desktop so i was more just asking about how useful a laptop really is and whether its worth my money to invest in?

nah, if you have a good computer don't waste the money on a laptop. Save it for things you actually need like food...

I never brought a laptop to lectures - as long as you have access to a computer, you'll be fine.
