Diploma Course Choice
Jul 21st, 2003 at 7:13pm
 
Public Admin vs Company/ Commercial. Does it make a difference to employers?

The Public Admin option seems a lot more interesting (immigration law etc) but will choosing this stand in the way of my becoming commercial litigator extraordinaire?

Is one course easier than the other? I made the mistake of taking the "challenging" option at undergrad and won't be doing that again if I can avoid it!!

Hmm, Company and Commercial - oh it was so challenging. If you can successfully fill in a form then you'll pass it.

Final exam was multiple choice and open book. How enjoyable it was very much depended on the tutor - some were great, others were terrible - same goes for the whole diploma actually.

I didn't have any experience of Public Admin but believe it was a more interesting course. To be honest, I don't think employers really look at diploma subjects - I don't think taking Public Admin will stop you becoming a corporate solicitor. However, if you apply to work with a local authority, they tend to look for public admin.
