Is it too risky?
Hey everyone..
I'm looking at university courses in Law, but I don't want to do just English Law. I'm interested in a joint/combined degree of English Law, plus either: French Law, American Law, European Law or International Law. I have a great interest in international relations and different cultures so this kind of degree would be ideal. I have other reasons for this choice of course too but they aren't really relevant to this thread.

I'm aware that most degrees in English Law qualify the student for advancement into a legal profession in England and Wales, but I would also like a degree that awards a degree/diploma (mostly diplomas in the courses I've looked at) in the other jurisdiction studied.

It is highly likely that I will be applying for either the English Law and/with American Law, or English Law and/with French Law.. my decision being based significantly on the results of my AS/A-level French examinations.

The problem I have come across is that the university I really want to go to (if I were to study English Law and/with American Law) does not take applications for that course via UCAS; you have to apply after the first year of the LLB. Because of the reason stated above regarding joint/combined degrees, I do not want to graduate with just a LLB/BA in English Law. ((no offence is intended to those who have chosen the single honours degree; it is only for personal reasons that I would prefer two jurisdictions.. or a degree that could possibly lead to two jurisdictions.))

So my problem is that there is a risk in applying for this course.. and I am unsure of what to do next or what to take into consideration because of this... If anyone can give me any advice, or find yourself in a similar situation etc then please let me know...

Thanks everyone!
