Business Law Bitesize - Study Guides

Which electives shall I pick? 

Prior to your final year of the law degree, you'll be tasked with the responsibility of picking your "electives"!

What are electives? 

Electives are optional modules.


You'll be free to choose from a range of subjects that your university has to offer. In an ideal scenario, you'll use your options wisely and pick subject areas that you think you'd be interested in post-University. For example, if you were interested in working for the Magic Circle, choosing electives such as family, crime, private client etc will not really show a genuine interest in corporate law. It's not the end of the world if you did pick unrelated modules but you may need to do a little extra outside of your studies to show an interest in corporate. 

How could you possibly know what you'll enjoy at this stage?

It is difficult to know what you'd enjoy without having seen what an area of law looks like in practice. To help you make your decision, check out our 'What Do Lawyers Do?!' Portal. We have summarised over 70 areas of legal practice and included typical tasks of a lawyer in that discipline. This should help you narrow down your elective choices!

Extra Curricular

University is about more than just your degree! Are you getting in enough extra-curricular activities?! 

Before you panic, there is absolutely zero expectation on you to join every single society, win every single award, enter every writing competition, do every moot etc etc. The list goes on. Do not over exhaust yourself as you'll be setting yourself up for a major fall. Instead, think logically and realistically about what it is you want to do and how best to get there

We have compiled a list of a range of extra curricular activities that you can do whilst at University. Just to be clear, we are not suggesting you do all of these things. No. We have compiled the list so you can see what opportunities are out there and decide which ones you are interested in and would like to pursue. You'll get so much more out of an experience if you genuinely enjoy it and can see its benefits.
