Positives: It’s very useful if you have an interest in politics or diplomacy. Law provides a good basis for a number of employment areas not just for people wanting to become lawyers as such.
Negatives: It’s quite stressful, Bond provides a trimester study system with less holidays. But of course every uni degree is stressful in that sense.
My advice to future students is: Do your research on degrees your potentially interested in. Get work experience or volunteer or shadow people in your field of interest to get a feel for things
Positives: Hands on
2 years (trimesters)
My advice to future students is: Invest! It’s worth it
Positives: The class sizes are small which makes the quality of teaching much higher as individual questions can be answered with little to no inconvenience. The assessment style is practical and hands-on rather than the “textbook-style” learning many law students have to deal with. Overall it’s a nurturing and friendly environment in which I’ve made a number of friends, and have felt comfortable for the entirety of my degree to date.
Negatives: I don’t think there are many negative aspects at all! Law is an intense degree wherever you go, so having selected this study path I was well aware and equipped for the amount of work I would be expected to do.
My advice to future students is: Don’t think that you can’t change your mind later down the track! I’ve had a few changes in my study so far, and have dropped out of my second degree actually and am pursuing my passion for law now. There is no shame in chopping and changing, you just need to do what’s right for you 😀
Positives: Amazing facilities and teachers, top notch support from the university, interesting subjects and many opportunities to further my career and networking whilst I'm studying, so that I'm more likely to get a job when I've finished
Negatives: Some law subjects are a bit dry (shock shock).
My advice to future students is: Make sure you actually want to study the degree before you commit to the debt haha.
Positive is getting to be in a different country and seeing a different jurisdiction for law as I want to go into international law. Negative would be that I am far from home and a heavy course load subject like law it would be nice to have family and familiarity around.
My advice to future students is: Surround yourself with good friends because they will be your shoulder to lean on when you miss home or are in trouble so you want friends you know you can rely on
