  • Mooting is always given as the law extra-curricula activity. However it is a very specialist area. There are national competitions for law students in client interviewing, negotiating and other skills which are more useful in the real world most lawyers inhabit. They are also a lot of fun. You can find more info at www.law-competitions.com. And yes, I have an interest: I am the chair of the England & Wales Client Interviewing Competition!

  • I am starting my 3rd year of my Law Degree in September and I have a few questions to do with my career when i graduate.
    The situation is that I was born in England, but currantly live and study in Portugal. Here a Law Degree is 4 years at university. I would like to know if in the future, if I ever decide to move back to the UK, if I will be able to pratice law there or not. would I be able to take the Bar test in the UK? if anyone has any information regarding my question please contact me if possible.

  • Hello Susannah Mary Kenny,

    I think that you would have to do a law conversion course because the Portuguese legal system, as the rest of Europe, is very different from the English legal system. You study law from a civil perspective... here in the UK we study the common law of England and Wales, based on precedent and Acts of Parliament. I am a law student here in the UK and that is what I know about the matter, but it is worth researching to obtain more information.
    Good luck !!
