"I went to Oxford for three years followed by six months at the College of Law at Lancaster Gate. We had six months of intensive morning lectures followed by our exams. It was very basic black-letter law learning - we had these little blue books which we had to learn by heart. There were classes of 60 and we all sat in long rows like primary school. There was no use of modern teaching methods; almost no use of the blackboard even.
It is much more skills-based now, much more aimed at practice. I did Roman Law. Useless. It is much more human now, not that it is human yet, but it is much more so.
My advice to future law students is to find an area of the law in which you are interested because you will be required to specialise much earlier. Keep your options open but do find an area which interests you."
