Yeah, once you have spent three years of your life slavering away to get your degree.Once you pass that you then basically have to try and either get a Training Contract or a Pupillage. Depending on what route you want to go down i.e solicitor or barrister.

So yeah that is the training anyways, not too sure of the cost but all I do now is that is bloody competitive and hard to get either one.

Hmmmm.......I was thinking of going down the whole solicitor route. It's competitve and really hard to get a training contract but slightly easier than going into the whole barrister thing.
Also solicitors don't have to go into court that often so I probably wil deff stick with that. Already had an experience on my course for one of my assignments what it is to be like in court and argue. I did really well just didn't enjoy what I was doing. At the end of the day what is the point in doing a job like that just for the money. You got to at least feel confident in the work you are doing.

Yeah, we are currently doing personal injury stuff at the moment. It's ok I suppose, but hasn't really interested me. I just can't wait for my second year when you can choose your modules, that should be fun.
