    Jeff, how did the snowboard crash fuck your knee up? Was it the force onto the knee or did you twist it or what?

    Its hard to describe without showing you but basically we were learing and had one foot locked on the board and one free, my right

    When I crashed, his board got tangled with mine so couldn't put my foot behind me but could only go to the right of the board (basically doing the splits) and my right foot got stuck under the board and I could feel everything snap

    Do you do much sport Jeff?
    My sister didn't have an operation, think Geoff said similar about himself.
    Obv if you do lots of sport an op would be good.

    It all happened so quick but I'm sure I heard a squidgy snap mini explosion

    My mates all said they expected me to be back up in a few mins because I didn't seem to be in much pain, even though past sufferers have said that it feels like being shot when it happens :uhoh:

    Been told by a doctor before that I have a high pain threshold :smug: Still hurts that Keith Andrews hasn't been sold though

    If you're studying Law at Uni, you will still have to do set subjects throughout. If you are doing a law degree, I would advise you to choose the options that are vocational as selected classes, such as Family Law, Child Law, Medical Negligence and Intellectual Property, and avoid ones like Human Rights or Administrative Justice. When you have finished the degree, having done the vocational topics will suit further employment better.

    We were told that yea. I did chose subjects like that :o

    Family Law
    Child Law
    Employment Law
    Commercial Law
    European Human Rights (might change this now)
    Public Interest Law

    European Human Rights is ok, but there are better options available which might be more useful such as IT Law or Media Law.

    I would advise you to pay as much attention to Tort of Negligence as possible, as that would be the mainstay of 70% of Legal Jobs for a graduate, unless you were really lucky.

    Tort is a core subject
    IT Law or Media Law aren't choices for next year I don't think. I could take Intellectual Property instead I think

    Yes, Tort is a core subject. TBH, if you did it at A Level then it won't be too difficult.

    I did Intellectual Property. I thought it would be sound, but I could never get my head round it and I hated it. We had an open book exam for my finals and I still failed the fucker as I couldn't understand my own notes.

    Edit: Criminal Evidence is excellent if you get a chance to study it.

    OH OH that is a choice actually. I didn't even think about it. I'm Irish so I didn't do subjects like that in school

  • How many areas of law do you get to study as an undergraduate EFC?

    I went down the Graduate Diploma in Law route (Contract, Tort, Con & Ad, Criminal, Property, Equity & Trusts and EU Law), then upgraded to an LLB by doing IP and Company Law.

    I imagine you did all of the above as core subjects, just interested how many other modules you got to do.

    Christ, now you're asking.

    Ermm

    Core is Criminal, Tort, EU, Equity and Trusts, Constitutional and Administration, ELS, Contract and Land Law.

    I also did, Human Rights, Intellectual Property, IT Law, Medical Negligence, Criminal Evidence, Administrative Justice and Public International Law (which was excellent)

    they told me I couldn't have an op because the knee was really complicated and they weren't quite sure what would need doing (i think I lost some cartilage as well as the ligament) and basically it was too hard but If I really wanted they would take some ligament out of my ankle and that would fix it but I'd be in a chair for six months. :spaz:

    What was your injury exactly and what did you do to sort it?
     
  • Cheers EFC. So we got the same qualification and I did 4 less modules than you? Gutted :D

    Not arsed. I have a Law LLB (Hons ) from a redbrick, and TBF have used it about twice ever in my career.
     
  • I was only joking tbf. I'd have actually liked to do a wider range of subjects, but as my course was only one year full time or two years part time, it probably would have been too much.

    I use my law qualifications everyday.

    First you should look up what elective means.
    Picking something you have to do from other things isn't elective at all.

    What do you do?

    I have used mine for case law a few times, but in actual referring to Acts and such its been very rare as an FE in Residential Conveyancing or in RTA/PI. It's mainly practice rather than theory, although obviously everything is bound by the law we study, but in actual direct application of a piece of text or direct case law, I have rarely had to use it.
     
  • Nothing interesting I'm afraid. I mostly draft/interpret leases/licences for telecommunications operators.

    Hopefully, I'll be a practising barrister (criminal) in a few years.

    I spend a lot of time in court and in chambers with barristers and a QC, and tbf, I think I've only ever seen one occasion when one referred to case law too.
