I have taken a big decision: I am giving up the Law (at least for just now).
My plan is to move back to my parents’ house and have a year out from university, working full time. The aim is to get a job that will allow me to be in a financial position to begin studying full time again in September 2010. Those of you following me on Twitter may have noticed a mention of UCAS several hours before this post went up, so I am sure that you already had guessed that my future lay elsewhere. Now you are about to find out exactly where I hope that future lies.
I have decided to try and get into a Social Work degree for September 2010. What does this mean for the blog? Well I will endeavour to keep blogging and commenting on key political and legal issues from Scotland, the UK and around the world. Then, come September 2010 should I get into Social Work there will be the student dimension added back in as I record my experiences as a Student Social Worker.
As for the Law, I’m not sure if I will ever return to it. I may do at sometime in the future; I never rule anything out completely. Maybe, being a Lawyer is not for me and that I’m just to be content with my interest in the Law. The time I have spent studying it has been an amazing experience and I have a pretty good grasp of the legal system and the complexity of legal decision making: something which I am sure I would never have been able to truly understand without having spent this time studying Law.
