Positives: I enjoy learning about a foreign country and the different culture and language aspects of another country (France).
A bachelor of laws helps develop your analytical and research skills. One of the most positive aspects about a bachelor of laws included the analysis of cases as it can provide a very interesting and unique learning experience.
Negatives: Law can be a difficult and comprehensive degree with a lot of reading and difficult assessment tasks.
Learning another language can be difficult but rewarding
My advice to future students is: To ask for help from instructors and educators available to them when needed in order to reduce stress. As well as completing assignments as early as possible.
Positives: My course gives students the opportunity to work in the legal field, particularly international law, as well as develop analysis and research skills which can be useful and applicable to many job opportunity’s in general.
Negatives: The assessments can become overwhelming and there is a lot of reading involved so unless you enjoy the material explored in the particular class your undertaking and can be a lot of work.
My course also involves one year of study abroad in a foreign country, the country which uses the language you have learnt. This could be a very enticing and positive Experience for some and a negative for others depending on each individual.
My advice to future students is: To creat study groups with other students in the same course so as to lighten the load with assessments, note taking and case summaries.
Additionally, students should also take advantage of the educators available to them as well as other university resources.
When learning another language, watching shows and movies are extremely helpful.
Positives: Some very interesting and engaging subjects
Negatives: Some complex and disengaging subjects that are hard to follow
My advice to future students is: Involve yourself as much as possible in extracurricular activities (eg mooting)
