Many students going to university to study Law have little idea of what it really involves, or what they should be reading to prepare for it. (Or to prepare for interviews!)
My friend Mark Elliott, who teaches in the Law Faculty here in Cambridge, has started a fabulous blog called applyingforlaw.org, which both gives some insight into what studying law is all about, and discusses some of the legal issues behind topics currently in the news.
I know this may not seem like a focal point for most Status-Q readers, but, especially if you do have friends, family, kids, nephews or nieces thinking about studying law, politics etc, or even with a general interest in it, do point them at applyingforlaw.org – it’s a great resource, and an enjoyable read.
Update – Mark has now moved his site to publiclawforweveryone.com.
