I don’t know whether to pursue a career as a solicitor or go down a different route where academics aren’t everything.
I’m in the final year of my (non law) degree at the moment and am looking at applying for the GDL. I was on a good city vac scheme this summer and have good A-levels (AABB) but my uni isn’t great - it’s not Oxbridge or Russell Group, it generally hovers around 40th place in the league tables. It’s by no means terrible but it doesn’t exactly shine either. I know myself and I know I won’t be happy if I’m at a tiny regional or high street firm.
Is it worth pursuing a career in law or should I go down a route where perfect academics aren’t everything?
