Ever wondered if it's really possible to cram 'Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Law' into the one solitary year of a conversion course? Well, we're about to find out... I'm a recent Cambridge graduate beginning the GDL in September 2012, here to make your lives that little bit easier by providing you with a candid account of my first official foray into the legal world.
In my last post, I wrote about my views on self-funding the GDL and concluded that it can be worth starting without a training contract, but only if you’re absolutely sure that law is for you and you have a good chance at getting a job at the end of it.
I’ve spent a lot of time on this blog writing about my less-than-favourable view of law schools and both the GDL and the LPC.
Ever played an April Fool's prank on someone which didn’t quite have the reaction you expected?
I have wanted to be a lawyer from a very young age, but until university my dream was always to become a barrister.
I’m now a week into my electives term and am happy to report that I’m finding them a lot more interesting than my core subjects.
