Does the voice of optional modules affect the fired of law you can go into ?

hi , I’ve currently got offers for 2 university’s and I’m trying to figure out which university will benefit me . There is this course that the university of Nottingham of that I’m really interested in ( immigration law) but I’m not sure I want to go into the field of immigration law I just want to learn about it . The main field I’m thinking of choosing to go to is commercial / company / civil disputes and I just wanna know does the module you pick affect your chance of getting into a field ?

Any advice would be of help :smile:

I'm currently a Year 12 student interested in studying law, and when visiting a networking day at a silver circle firm, they informed me that the modules you take don't have too much of an impact on getting into the commercial field, as long as you have taken a few that do demonstrate interest. If you're interested in immigration law, you can 100% take an option module in it, but if you want to show that you have a true interest in the commercial field, I'd advise that you study some commercial or company law modules. Nottingham is a great university for going into the commercial field, so I'm sure they'll have a range of other modules that you can explore. As long as you are actively going out of your way to show your interest in different ways (e.g. networking, applying for commercial vacation schemes, first year schemes and taking some commercial law modules), studying immigration law as one of your optional modules won't put you at a disadvantage. Congratulations on your offers!

Thank you !!
Study whatever interests you. Bear in mind that about half of the practising lawyers in the country, me included, don't have a law degree. I did the core subjects, in a GDL. These days, I'm an expert on company law, the conflict of laws, constructive trusts, and other stuff besides. I didn't study any of those things.
