Exam Results

So I got my exam results and managed to get a 2:1 which I am quite happy about. I can't believe it's my last year already. I got my options through for next year and will be studying Tort (a lot of people have said this is strange because it is usually a first year subject), Family Law, International Human Rights, Law of Income and Turnover Taxes and Women in the Criminal Justice System. The latter two are a bit random as I had wanted to do Shipping Law but apparently its been cancelled! I am also doing a dissertation on Surrogacy law. Finding a dissertation tutor took a while but I am very pleased that the one I have has done research in this particular area and I am hoping to get a start on it before term starts in October.

Over the summer I am undertaking further work experience shadowing a barrister but have had no luck finding a vacation scheme! I have applied for a training contract with one particular firm that really stood out for me so fingers crossed for that. I have also applied to be a volunteer for the witness service in order to experience some of the other aspects of the Criminal Justice system. It's all a bit mixed up at the moment as I'm still confused as to which aspect I want to specialise in. I am looking forward to getting back to University and getting stuck in in October!

Wow, a 2:1 eh? Well, congratulations that's great news! Great that you're going on to do a research degree - what will you be doing your dissertation on?

I got a 2:1 at the end of my second year, still have a year left yet. I definately am considering going on to do research and possibly a PHD. I am doing my third year dissertation on surrogacy.
