In part B, it is not that easy to excel given that the results is pass, fail and very few distinction.

I will say that if you are doing corporate work of cos it will be better that you have done ACP. You can find the issue easier and know where to look for answer and the law. However, if you are doing corporate work without any knowledge of ACP, i will not say it will be unfavourable, but rather you will need to spend more time finding and researching the answer.

You should know that working in a department without any prior knowledge will be very stressful and taxing on yourself end of the day. If you are in firms that are very busy and squeezy, i dont think you will have the extra time and effort to read up everything from scratch.

Thanks!
Regarding point 1.

Speaking as somebody who's been through the whole process couple years back, nobody gives a damn about what you take during Part B, so my advice is either take the easiest combi or the one you're most interested in.

The tried and tested combi is Mediation & ACP. Mediation because you just need to do some mock roleplay to pass, and ACP because they literally tell you what the questions are before the exams. You can thank me later.

Part B is really only of relevance if you FAIL. And its pretty difficult to fail unless you're as dense as a rock. Sadly...an alarming number of law graduates nowadays are failing...

Regarding point 2. My answer is still the same. Nobody gives a damn what you take in Part B.

I daresay your level of physical attractiveness will be a bigger factor in you getting hired than what lame elective module you took in Part B.

I just completed part b last year. Fully agreed on this : The tried and tested combi is Mediation & ACP.

Hi seniors, since we are on the topic of part b, which is easier: cross border transactions or probate?

Thanks.
