    Hi 🙂 I am currently incredibly interested in doing International Relations/Studies as well as a Law degree after Year 12. My main interest is in International Studies but am still incredibly passionate about studying law. How helpful will these two degrees be if I were interested in a career in foreign affairs, or in the United Nations etc? I am also involved in politics and becoming a politician is a highly intriguing possible career path for me, and was hoping that these two degrees would be highly relevant and useful to a future in politics?

    Maybe consider doing a video on occupational therapy (or maybe other allied health degrees like physio, speech pathology, diagnostic radiography)?

    My dream job is to be a lawyer…. So I can't listen to your reasons.
    My plan is to study and get an international uni transfer to America, so I'm not underpaid as a lawyer like Australia.. In America, the first year is 160,000$ usd.
    It's not all about the money.

    economic crisis seem to be a big issue in the legal field

    I don't believe comparing teaching and law, in 2017 41,000 teachers unemployed in NSW and those three months you talk about aren't holidays, teachers are planning and working during that time and are not being paid for it, long hours for very little return. Also consider the huge mass scale of casualisation of teaching which affects ones ability to really justify 80hr weeks and the expectation of spending your own income into resources and supplies for school. Lawyering at least process an opportunity to run a local business for yourself and can up your social status, much much better than teaching. In fact, I find the huge deliberate over supply of teaching grads unethical and employees continually changing the goals posts for employment. Please don't compare lawyering to teaching as an example.

    I'm considering applying for law as a joint becuase I want to use psychology and/or go into social policy but only one university in England does those two together. From what I've gather so far law seems really practical and current, I would definatly prefer it to learning politics as a whole. But I'm also a naturally slow reader, though my comprehension is good and I can improve on speed. So other than reading law jargon material, how else could I test if I'm capable for the degree even as a joint honour, and what is your general advice on the degree for someone who won't necessarily become a lawyer?

    Shut the fuck up

  10. Jose Leal says:

    If you want to be a lawyer, go ahead and study law! Follow your passion and the money will come regardless of what people might say. Surround yourself with people that motivate you to accomplish your dreams.

  11. Sara Gondo says:

    Can you possibly make a video on ways to get into uni without an atar such as early entry?

  12. I Rose says:

    I think learning a language if you want to be a lawyer is useful. What language is highly sought after by firms? Mandarin?

  13. All Rice says:

    Simple. He did not pass the bar nor can finish law school. Lol

  14. Farah Safaa Tuteja says:

    Did some research and it seems like commercial and property law are in demand in Australia. That’s because there’s so much land compared to how many people there are – and a lot of immigration into Australia. So that means, development and construction, which opens up these legal jobs! I mean look at how the cities have developed already, and still are. Your video was very useful, but what do you think about the country’s growth and specific laws in demand? Do you think that construction related laws are opening up (e.g health and safety, commercial property, intellectual property and patent laws?)

  15. MENN NOO says:

    100% agree with his points on crippling oversupply and cruel working conditions in Australias legal industry. It's simply not worth it anymore. I wonder if you have any stats on unemployed grads?

  16. MENN NOO says:

    Great point on how double law isn't that much of a differentiating factor anymore.

  17. Itsnodawayitustabe says:

    Degree inflation seems to be hitting you guys down under

  18. Masood KHAN says:

    People from the Street would argue your claim of oversupply, they're complaining about under-supply and heightened demand.

    I'm going to study law in July 😀

  20. AwesomeDude23 says:

    Fantastic video mate. You might just have saved me 30k in wasted debt. I'm a finance student looking to 'differentiate' from the pack a bit. That being said, given that there are so many people with a law degree now as you state, surely that would also mean that single degree students such as myself are less desired, given that firms would just employ undergrads with one as opposed to without one?

  23. Jackson Quinn says:

    Thanks for nothing.

  24. thePioneer says:

    This video was made to reduce those figures of law students so Government can control the job market. Fuck that shit. If you really want it bad. Make sure you lose to no one, get competitive, and ofc survival of the fittest, if you didn’t get that job well you didn’t go out of your way did you ?

  25. Muhammad Ali says:

  26. Mich y says:

    Dude stfu u fucking dick head why are u making videos that demotivates students

  27. Bea Lawful says:

    I am currently studying law (this is my channel page if anyone wants to follow my journey) and there is about 5 people I have met in my degree that actually want to practice law. The vast majority don’t even want to become lawyers… Might that have anything to do with the number of graduates compared to jobs?

  28. Wolfe says:

    why you thshould not thtudy law thegree

  29. Daniel Huynh says:

    Pls don’t do law degree. Lots of reading and writing, but very low starting salary

  30. Dilber Aliyeva says:

    Im not in a university right now or in 11 th grade. This video demotivates a lot i guess. But guys if u want to be a laweyer, be one❤️ yes there are millions of lawyers in the world. And 90% of them cant find a job at the moment. However who says that u will be one those 90%? U will be one of those 10%. If u want to be a lawyer, be a good one and dont worry ull find a great job with great salary. Im sure that all the students who want to be lawyer loves that job and that what matters the most. Lawyer cant do math:) lawyer does history and languages:))) and we love those subjects by heart. Im still small well not that small but i know that i want be a lawyer. Its my biggest dream:) and believe me nothing can make me change my mind. Were all aware of the negative sides of it, but u can be the successful lawyer 🙂 the one that is better than others! Dont give up on ur dreams go ahead and study that law, this profession is the profession that can change the world:)

  31. michael griffiths says:

    i earn more cutting trees! (regrowth to be precise) why is law so prestigious? i work less hours and earn more! i can see how some might see it as changing the world, but at what cost? we have to eat and live! what about those with families? interested to see what others say about law who have degrees in other fields.

  32. Luke Friend says:

    Reading books that’s what works knowledge is power.in this day and age the only thing I found good was gain knowledge via reference books.as the world grow the internet is swallowing up all the books to PDF files and books are getting redundant.controlling knowledge is what’s happening.

    Without lawyers our jails would be overcrowded

  35. epochtae says:

    My sister’s currently studying law, and she’s found a job. I want to follow the same path, but at the same time I’ve realised I only want to do it for the money- not for actually enjoying my career. This video helped me realise that, thank you 🙂

    You know it’s bad when he’s in the company polo shirt

  41. Madison - says:

    1 critique and a few positives: first off this video was well done and informative. The only critique I have is I would have liked to learn about Law in different countries as I am a U.S student.

    Also I didn't know teachers were so well paid in Australia. Thank you! Thank you! For the food for thought.

  42. Trav G says:

    lol teachers making 70-100+? not unless you're a professor at a reputable college. Most teachers around here are starting at 30-40k

  43. Sam MAI says:

    I am wanting to get into Business Management. Can you please do a brutal honest answer about the pros and cons of that degree please?

  44. lightplays says:

    Thanks fro the warning bro

  45. Haley Ann says:

    I’m going to be a lawyer

  46. lostbeyondpluto says:

    You touched on most of the points I touch upon in my video. Basically, unless you literally cannot see yourself doing anything else with your life, do not study law. The job prospects are dismal due to the humongous oversupply of lawyers in this country. It's awful. I graduated from a top tier university with honours, top marks and two internships. I haven't regretted anything as much as I regret this degree.

  47. Judith Janse Van Rensburg says:

    In what world does teachers get 70-100000 😱 because I need to move there + the 3 month holiday 🙄 is not a holiday – we have a million things to do … Please don't tell people how good teaching is unless you have studied and done it yourself because you have no idea what the hell you are talking about

  48. Benafsh Shukuri says:

    Currently got an offer from Murdoch University for a bachelor law. But I reject it because I want to study ( global politics and policy studies)
