  • I have seen and read everyone's ideas but to be honest law is not as crucial as economics because everything currently runs with business you cannot tell me that you will only rely on your law carrier what if you don't have clients at the moment and you are not flexible yet you spent alot studying law........::seriously!!

  • This article is absolutely SPOT ON. I remember after the 4 years of studying my law degree (joint honours) with American Studies, coming out of Uni foggy brained and wondering to myself what I had actually learned. I shortly came to the conclusion that this was NOTHING. Well, actually I had learned how pointless my law degree was. It was boring, tedious and monotonous and taught me nothing about the real world and the practicality of working in the legal sector.

    It is only now, 7 years later that I have taken it upon myself to retrain for possible work in the legal sector that I am actually beginning to learn something, from an online distance learning course no less - that costs a vast amount less than the pointlessness of my degree.

    I have learned a great deal from doing odd jobs here and there, met people from all walks of life and backgrounds. Yes, I don't earn much (yet), but I'm certainly learning more than i was when I was being forced to flog a dead in my law lectures. Turns about I'm a far better teacher than most of my lecturers could ever be....
