    hmm, i was just randomly wondering. If a chinese person from china studied law in the UK at UCL say, what would the point of that be? I mean when they go back to china after their degree it's not like the law degree will come in useful...i mean i thought china didn't really have laws...don't they just torture people regardless? :awesome:

    Are there even any totally free courts and coherent laws in china? If not then there is no point having lawyers cos the government decides who goes to jail and who lives and dies, not the judiciary, right?

    LOL. I'm not from china. The flag is random.

    But there are loads of chinese people on my course. I don't actually know. Not all law is about who lives and dies and goes to jail, I'm sure most law encountered will be company and commercial law. A lot of American and UK firms have large practice areas in China.

    hmm, so the law you are taught is generalised so that you can apply it in any country? is that what you are saying? Or, do you pick up transferable skills which you can apply to any countries' law?

    No, we are taught English law. You can work for a British or American firm, and be transferred to their offices in China (or anywhere else in the world) without being qualified to practice law there. What happens after that, I don't know.

    why the hell would they transfer you to China? :awesome: Try to have an influence on local law or to study their archaic system? :p:

    That was last year. And the year before. This year is more like crazy coursework writing, resulting in a huge carbs intake, little sleep, fried brain and genuine jealousy- at least the mice in the experiment I'm writing up had some amphetamine to help...

    Lol apparently I have it easy compared to you guys. Must have spent about 8-10 hours this weekend doing all of this week's reading and homework, and everytime I stop and think "yes! I'll have a completely free week next week!" I remember that I'm doing it so I can plan the 2,500 word essay that is in for after Christmas. ****. ****.

    And now I have to do a likely hour before bed... See ya. :work:

    P.S.: Ooh, I believe I get an essay back tomorrow, possibly. :teeth:
