The pointlessness of a law degree
This is actually pretty offensive to people who have done a law degree and have gained a great deal from it, and it is a shame to put future students off. In my view there is no other degree which trains your mind to think about things in a legal way and from my experience people who have done certain other degrees or the GDL simply have not acquired those skills. The discussion of the postal acceptance rule etc. is just a means by which those skills are acquired. The law degree is not about learning law. I gained a huge amount from my LLB and whilst I would also love to do degrees in Economics, History, Spanish, English Literature and Politics, there isn't time. I can pick these up as hobbies and I wouldn't change what I have done.
